As adults we must follow the laws and need to be an example for our youth and help our youth have standards and set goals for their lives. Vital to a youths’ education is understanding the realities of alcohol.

Atlanta’s youth need to be aware that alcohol lowers a person’s inhibitions and ability to make correct judgments along with the fact that motor skills in an individual decrease once one has consumed alcohol. The most common age group for driving after alcohol consumption are those aged 21-34. This shows a dire need for alcohol education for our youth to prevent them from drinking and/or getting behind the wheel if having been drinking.
There are many things parents can do to prevent their children from drinking. One example is to give your children an answer for a way out when offered a drink, i.e. I am trying out for the football/volleyball team and need to stay in shape. Drill questions that your son or daughter are likely to be asked concerning alcohol or drugs until they are able to answer without hesitation and with confidence. Establish a strong communication line with your children. Be the person they can come to with a problem rather than reacting and help them figure out a solution to that problem. You want to be open and honest when speaking with your children about alcohol addiction and communicate with them on a level which they can understand. Listen instead of judging. This is of the utmost importance because younger individuals who try alcohol are more likely to experiment with drugs.
