Things for Tweens To Do When There’s No School: Below, we’ve put together an extensive list of things for tweens to do at home so that if — when! — boredom sets in we can refer to it and either pick something from our list to do or, at the very least, be inspired by all of the fun and interesting choices that that there are for us to choose from.
Moms (and dads too), you are doing a great job! In fact, our research shows that 76% of parents have talked to their kids at least once in the past year about alcohol consumption. And when conversations about alcohol go up, underage drinking rates go down.
We believe that everyone has a role to play as we work to prevent underage drinking. Today is National School Nurse Day, and we celebrate the incredible and vital role that school nurses play, both in the fight against underage drinking and in keeping their school communities happy and healthy.
April is always one of the busiest months of the year—Alcohol Responsibility Month—and this past April was no exception. From running our first contest to working with Olympians, from teaming up with Scholastic to releasing new videos, we had an amazing month full of activities, milestones, and hard work. Just take a look at all of the things we did.
We value our relationships with parents and educators (and everyone else!) who help kids say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking. We love working with you, hearing from you, and celebrating the great job you do as you continue to have conversations that last a lifetime.
Chances are you know who Summer Sanders is. In February, we sat down with Summer Sanders, and she is still as energetic, fierce, and strong as ever.

Read Across America Day marks Dr.Seuss’s birthday and encourages children to read and be read to—both at school and at home. Reading is fundamental and provides kids with cool opportunities to use their imaginations. In fact, statistics show that reading to children “is not only one of the best activities to stimulate language and cognitive skills; it also builds motivation, curiosity, and memory.”
We are happy to work with an impactful team of blog ambassadors who bring a fresh mindset to our main mission: inspiring parents to have conversations with their kids and encouraging them to say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking.
