POWERTALK21: APRIL 21ST IS THE NATIONAL DAY TO TALK WITH YOUR KIDS AND TEENS ABOUT ALCOHOL.

Despite how you may feel sometimes, research shows that parents are an important influence on whether or not their children choose to drink alcohol.

Kids do care about their parents' opinions. They tend to respond well to a positive parenting style. In contrast, many studies show that authoritarian, overprotective, and permissive parenting can lead to negative outcomes. The strategies recommended in MADD's Pocket Guide are compatible with the positive parenting style.
