What to Do When Your Teen is Drinking or Using
Alcohol and pot are the drugs of choice among youth…and chances are your tween or teen has been exposed.
More than half of American youths ages 12 to 20 have tried alcohol with the average age for the first drink is 13 for girls and 11 for boys. Over average age for smoking pot is 16, but up to 16% of eighth graders have admitted that they started in middle school.
Underage drinking - especially before age 15 - increases the risk for many alcohol and drug-related problems.
- increased risk-taking including driving or riding with someone under the influence
- withdrawal and isolation
- poor grades
- increased depression or anxiety
- exhibiting inappropriate, aggressive, even abusive behavior
- being a victim of a violent crime
- becoming involved in criminal acts
- engaging in unprotected sex
- sexual assault
- suicide attempts
The risks are real.
And, as a parent, you know the importance of talking to tween or teen about alcohol and substance abuse. It should be as easy as talking about sex or healthy habits, right?
The reality is that most parents are not talking about drinking and drugs, and that must change.
No longer is it an option to think that your child won’t be affected. And, these numbers are increasing…The numbers are scary because it is no longer a matter of if your child is exposed to alcohol but when.

- how to talk to your child about drugs and alcohol
- what the signs of drinking or drug use look like
- what to do if your tween or teen has been caught drinking
