“The Douglas County Drug Prevention Coalition is launching a new campaign targeting a reduction in underage drinking.
Small Talks is designed to encourage parents, loved ones and other caring adults to have small, casual conversations with kids starting around the age of 8 about alcohol use.
“This doesn’t have to be the long, sit down, ‘We’re going to have the alcohol talk,’” said Jane Larson, co-chair of the Douglas County Drug Prevention Coalition.
The goal of the campaign is to encourage parents to talk to their children when the opportunity presents itself to help influence their kids’ choices around alcohol use, she said.”
