Having tough conversations with your teen can be harder than finding a reason to wear that crazy colored jacket in the back of your closet, but it doesn’t have to be.
When talking to your teen about alcohol, it helps to spell it out for them. Be clear about your rules around alcohol and also explain the reasons behind your rules. By explaining your reasoning, your teen will feel more comfortable and be more understanding of where you are coming from.
Don’t wait for another thing to go out of style. Talk to your kids about the risks of underage drinking and make sure they understand your boundaries and rules.
