Hingham FACTs (Families, Adolescents, and Communities Together Against Substances)
Dear Hingham High School Parents:
Did you know that parental disapproval is the number one reason why teens choose not to drink? SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) is launching an initiative at our school and in our community that aims to reduce underage drinking in Hingham by addressing student, parent, school, and community attitudes and policies regarding underage alcohol use.
Because Underage Drinking Requires an Adult Response, we need your help. As parents, you are still the most influential factor in your teen’s life, and research shows that you play a crucial role in preventing underage drinking. Hingham’s SADD chapter will be sending home information for you about how to keep your child safe and alcohol-free. Look for tips and answers to questions from parents like you from the Underage Drinking Requires an Adult Response campaign in upcoming parent mailings or you may visit ParentTeenMatters.org for resources and tools.
This month we are highlighting stories from high school students about what their parents do to keep them safe and alcohol-free.
We welcome your feedback.
Thank you, and remember – Underage Drinking Requires an Adult Response!
