The Power of Parents: NEW MADD Website

Roughly 6,000 people will die this year in direct correlation with underage drinking—a statistic that can be greatly reduced with parental intervention.

Underage drinking has emerged as the number one youth drug problem. By being an informed, caring parent you can strongly impact your teens decisions regarding alcohol. In fact, 74% of kids will turn to their parents for guidance on drinking. And research shows that as moms we are the number one influencers in dealing with this issue. For teens, alcohol is an illegal drug—and a zero tolerance policy is the best policy to have as a parent.

TODAY, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) will be launching The Power of Parents: It's Your Influence (www.thepowerofparents.org). This program has been designed to help provide parents with key tips, information, and tools to help us at home reach our teens and communicate the real life danger of underage alcohol use.

Also, be sure to check out the MADD Blog for helpful information and resources.
MADD is also on Twitter and Facebook.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of MADD. A donation was made to MADD in my name to thank me for taking the time to participate.
