Did you know that 84% of Pierce County parents have clear rules about alcohol and drugs?
But what should I say?
Every family is unique. You know your kids best. Just be honest and speak from the heart.
Let them know why you worry, how much you care and that you’re ALWAYS willing to patiently listen and discuss their questions about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs.
Kids say their parents are the most influential people in their lives. They don’t want to disappoint you! Honor their respect with clear guidance and rules that will keep them safe and healthy.
