Talking with Teens about Underage Drinking

December 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

MADD National President Helen Witty, a parent and victim of drunk and drugged driving, lost her precious daughter Helen Marie when a teen who had been drinking tequila and smoking marijuana made the terrible choice to get behind the wheel and drive.   Helen believes it is stories like hers and sadly many others, that hold the power to create change.  Helen will graciously remind us of the power we have as parents to help our teens make smart, healthy and safer choices.

Participants will learn about the problem and consequences of underage drinking and marijuana use,  the role of teens’ friends/peers, the power of parents and adults and what we can do today, tomorrow and in the future to keep our kids safe.
