“Our youth make healthy choices every day but it doesn’t make the headlines. Yet the research is showing that maybe it should. The number of local alcohol-free teens is growing, at a rate that is almost double the national level. That growth seems to be related to increased awareness and support for the healthy choices most of our high school students are making.
The Power of Choice provides parents with a wealth of information they can use as they guide their children through the exciting teenage years.”
POWERTALK FOR FAMILIES
“April showers bring May Flowers! Spend your rainy day gathered with the family on the couch to talk about moving towards independence using April’s Power Talk. Adolescence is a time for exploring individuality. It’s natural for your adolescent to seek independence and their own identity. Giving adolescents age-appropriate freedom builds independence and confidence and can actually encourage a healthier connection between them and their parents as they grow into confident, productive young adults. Keep Talking, They Are Listening – the more your family talks together, the easier it is to talk about not using alcohol.“
