  Parents can have the best intentions when they allow their teen to have a
party in their home, but permitting underage drinking is a big mistake.
Teen drinking is illegal and unsafe.
 
     
 
THINGS YOU CAN DO AS A PARENT
 
  1. Refuse to supply alcohol to anyone under 21, including your own child.  
     
  2. Know the laws. Serving alcohol to minors is illegal and can result in stiff  
 
  penalties, including up to 90 day in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. In addition, parents can be sued if they give alcohol to a teen and the teen is injured in any way.
 
  Taking car keys is never enough!  
     
  3. Be at home when your teen has a party - and be visible. Make sure that alcohol  
 
  is not brought into your home or on your property by anyone under the age of 21.
 
     
  4. Talk to other parents about not providing alcohol at parties and other events  
 
  your child will be attending. Call parents having parties in their homes to determine if the party is supervised and alcohol-free.
 
     
  5. Create alcohol-free activities in your home for your teen and his/her friends.  
     
  6. Create alcohol-free activities for teens in your community.  
     
  7. Report underage drinking to local law enforcement officials.
