Spring is here and teens are buzzing with anticipation around prom and graduation and the celebrations that follow. While these special occasions are exciting for
both teens and their families, it’s not a time for adults to lower expectations or relax the rules regarding underage drinking or any other kind of substance use.

Prom and graduation are once-in-a-lifetime experiences that every teen should enjoy. Parents and caregivers have the power to help that happen. Have a short talk with your teen to discuss the risks of drinking alcohol. Set clear expectations, understand what your child’s plans
are, and remind them you are always there for them.
