Little talks can have a BIG impact.

Kids say their parents and family members are a big influence when they make important life decisions. At some point, one of those decisions will be about drinking. Chatting with your kids about alcohol as they’re growing up can help them make safer and informed decisions about it in the future. Whatever their age, it’s always a good time to start the conversation.
