Underage Drinking Red Ribbon Week

by KidsSafe on October 15, 2012

Remember it only takes one time for most teens to begin drinking and then thinking they can get home (no problem to drive), and if they call their parents they will only be in BIG Trouble…. please tell you KIDS to call you, and do not DRIVE under the influence of anything their live are more important than getting mad at them….

MADD Power of Parents

GET MAD at people who sell, profit and provide your teens with alcohol, illegal and/or dangerous drugs!!!

Every October, during Red Ribbon Week, schools around the country encourage young people to live a drug-free life. Alcohol is the most commonly used drug by youth—more than all illegal drugs combined, in fact. That’s why MADD wants to help young people take a stand against underage alcohol use, help schools educate young people about the dangers of alcohol and equip parents to have potentially lifesaving conversations about alcohol with their kids.

Together, by engaging youth, parents and the community to prevent underage drinking and support the 21 minimum drinking age, we can reduce the deaths and injuries that come from underage drinking.

This Red Ribbon Week, whether you are a teen, parent or educator, use your power to make a difference and save lives.

Help support this cause… better yet talk to your kids especially your teens TODAY!! don’t wait!

Here is a good start, downloading your own personal pdf copy of: Parents Daily Tips

“The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.” To date, MADD’s work has saved nearly 300,000 lives…and counting.

Some of the most used and dangerous drugs in recent years are Heroin, Alcohol and cocaine.

Alcohol is often seen as the number one “gateway drug”. A “gateway drug” is the term given to a subsistence that, when taken, can often lead the user to experiment and use other dangerous drugs. Read the full story: Dangerous Drugs!
