No Drinking Party is Safe

 

There is no such thing as a safe place for underage drinking.  Hosting a drinking party for your children sends a dangerous message!

 

You are telling your underage teen that you think it is okay to break the law.  This type of mixed messaging can make it can be difficult for them to know which laws should or should not be obeyed.
