Time for another off-topic post, folks. This one is important for parents of tweens and teens. Recent events in Steubenville, Ohio illustrate the extremely dangerous situations inebriated kids might face. Today’s parents need to be ever-vigilant in order to keep their teens safe.
Last month was Alcohol Awareness month, and CARES offered the community vital information about what our kids are doing and why. I’ve summarized the major points in this article, Honing Your Radar on Teen Drug and Alcohol Use, which I hope you’ll take the time to read. Even if you don’t have kids of your own, you may have nieces, nephews or others who can benefit from this information, so pass it along.
