Parents: Help Your Teens Party Right At Graduation
BETHESDA, Md., May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Graduation is a time to celebrate. But before your graduates party, take the time to talk with them about alcohol—it just may save a life.
It's About Your Teen...
A teenager's brain is still developing and it is very sensitive to alcohol's effects on judgment and decision-making.Alcohol Can Be Tricky... If your graduates drink, they may temporarily feel elated and happy, but they should not be fooled. Ask them to consider these risks:
- Their inhibitions and memory soon become affected—so they may say and do things that they will regret and possibly will not remember doing at all.
- Their decision-making skills are also affected. They may become restless and aggressive. They may be more at risk for having an alcohol-related trafﬁc crash, getting into ﬁghts, trashing a house, or making unwise decisions about sex.
