Your child is working on a lesson entitled The Social Ramifications of Alcohol Abuse. Along with the class, your child is learning about how his/her behavior can have an impact on other people. They have brainstormed about this issue and are using their knowledge of what influences their peers to develop an alcohol abuse prevention program.
We wanted to inform you about our work on this lesson so that you will be prepared to discuss these issues at home. A helpful resource for getting a productive conversation started is Make a Difference: Talk to Your Child about Alcohol, which is available online at: http://www.alcoholfreechildren.org/en/pubs/pdf/makeadifference.pdf. Over the next few weeks, we will discuss other topics related to teen drinking.
Thank you for your support of our work on this important topic. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Sincerely,This teacher sheet is a part of the The Social Ramifications of Alcohol Abuse lesson.
