There is growing research that indicates parents are the number one influence on their child's decision to drink. MADD sites a study that revealed 74% of children say their parents are the greatest influence on their decision. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently said that nearly 80% of teens say their parents should have a say in whether they drink alcohol.
The Power of Parents handbook is non-confrontational. It outlines various parenting styles and approaches for parents to use to connect with their children. The goal of the handbook is to make parents more confident to start and maintain positive conversations with their children about alcohol. In delivering the program, Hanover Cares' goal is to help parents receive and review the handbook, and to support them where they feel challenged having conversations with their teens.
