Mom- 3

I'm deeply sorry to the family who had lost this young man so soon. I've long since realize that teenage drinking is inevitable and I know that there is a lot us as parents can do to help minimize the possibility of our children trying alcohol. As a mother of three boys, one heading to middle school soon - we as a family have decided to open the conversation in regards to alcohol. At this young age I've asked my 10 year old what alcohol was? and I was surprise to hear that he knows more than what I would have imagine. It is important for us to let them know what the effects are if they do decide to try alcohol, ask them what would they do if the "cool crowd" asked him to drink or try?
Not only opening conversation is helpful, it fosters trust and a sign of strong relationship between parent and child.
