Power of Parents is a researched based program developed by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). The program itself is a 20 minute presentation that equips all parents, grandparents, and caregivers with the tools needed to help them start the potentially lifesaving conversation about alcohol with their teens. The objectives of the program are to 1. Talk about the problem of teen drinking, 2. Talk about the role of peers in the problem of teen drinking, 3. Talk about the role of adults in the problem of teen drinking, and 4. Talk about the role of parents and preventing teen drinking. All who attend the program will receive a free parent handbook that further details what was discussed in the presentation such as, tips for talking to teens and starting the conversation about alcohol, helping teens make good choices, understanding adolescent development, adolescent brain development, and parenting skills/strategies.
