April is Alcohol Responsibility Month, which is a great time for teachers and parents to start—and continue!—having conversations with tweens and teens about saying YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking. Our research shows that as conversations between parents and kids about alcohol go up, underage drinking rates go down. This is great news—and a great reason to keep the lines of communication open in your homes and in the classroom!
We have a busy month in store for you, and we hope that you will use our resources and be an active part of our team.
Announcing our NEW Partner in Education!
Save the date for April 11 as we take to twitter to launch our new partnership with Discovery Education, a leader in digital education. We will present three new lesson plans and videos geared for 5th-7th grade classrooms all about alcohol’s effect on kids’ developing brains, bodies, and their behavior. We even get help from Olympic athlete and champion swimmer Nathan Adrian. Ready to dive in? You can find out more about this project here!
Want a sneak peek at the NEW lesson plans and videos, stay tuned…we are happy to let you take a peek on April 3rd!
Attorneys General + Nathan Adrian + Ask, Listen, Learn = WOW!
Nathan Adrian also joined us as we collaborated with Attorneys General from across the US to help encourage parents to talk to their kids about alcohol and to prevent underage drinking. Be on the lookout on social media for this exciting project!
As always, throughout the month, we will take to social media, sharing tips about preventing underage drinking, starting conversations, and helping kids to avoid peer pressure. Be sure to follow us—and share what you learn with other parents, educators and kids too!
Join in the GOOD NEWS!
Parents, you are the #1 influence on your kids’ decision to drink–or not to drink–alcohol. And educators, you make an impact on your students everyday too, helping them navigate through their tween years. We love working with you, hearing from you, and celebrating the great job you do as you continue to have conversations with kids that last a lifetime.
