Guide

To Download the Parent's Guide click on the image above.

The Parent’s Guide has advice from experts on:

§ Getting the conversation about alcohol and drugs started with your teenager – picking the right moment and taking your opportunity to talk.

§ Building resilience - showing your child that you have faith in their ability to get through difficult times and supporting them to solve their own problems and to be successful.

§ Setting a good example – the way parents drink and their attitudes to alcohol are one of the biggest influences on their child’s attitude to alcohol. Be aware of the messages you are giving about alcohol and drugs (for example: “I need a glass of wine after the day I’ve had.”)

§ How to really listen - spend more time trying to understand their world and their feelings before offering your opinions or advice.

§ How to be the parent - handling resistance / setting boundaries / being brave. Keeping a close eye on your child and setting rules is the difficult choice, but you are doing the right thing.

The guide also has practical advice for parents on how to deal with specific situations, such as:

§ Your child wants to go to an underage disco

§ Your child’s friends are allowed to drink

§ Your teenager comes home drunk

§ You think your child is taking drugs – how to recognise the signs

§ Educating your child on alcohol content and risks

§ Encouraging your teenager to be responsible for themselves and their friends
