I read an article today that had great tips for parents on how to talk to their kids about the positive aspects of avoiding alcohol. This was a new twist that I found refreshing, since we usually use scare tactics when warning about drinking (you could kill somebody, you might do something stupid, you have the alcoholism gene in your family tree, etc.).
What I found really valuable, is that it had step-by-step instructions for how to actually have that conversation. Take a look HERE, and plan to set aside some time to have that conversation with each of your children.
