Spring Break 2016February 16, 2016

Spring Break is just around the corner and is a time when college students may be at particularly high risk of experiencing alcohol-related problems. The College Parents Matter website was developed to help parents have conversations with college-age children about excessive drinking.

Created with input from experts in parent-child communication as well as college students themselves, the website has suggestions and scripts oriented to specific occasions, such as Spring Break.

We encourage you to check out this very useful resource, as we all try to keep our young people safe and healthy. The website also features general tips for effective communication when parents talk about drinking with their child.
