Prom is one of the most exciting times in a teen's high school experience. It's a celebratory time to mark the end of the school year, and a time that our teens will remember for the rest of their lives.
Sadly, every year, some teen's prom night gets cut tragically short whether from drinking and driving or alcohol poisoning. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1 in 3 teens who die in alcohol-related incidents die during prom or graduation weekend.
So how can we help our teens make wise choices and ensure that their prom night will be safe and fun?
For starters, we tell them that we disapprove of underage alcohol use. Then, we can tell our community that providing alcohol for underage drinkers is unacceptable, unhealthy, and illegal.
