You ARE a Powerful Influence in Your Teen's Life

 

Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that teens who believe their parents monitor their behavior are less likely to make decisions that can negatively impact their health, including drinking alcohol.  One possible monitoring practice involves parents' willingness to STAY UP or wake up to welcome their teens home after and evening spent with friends.
