What Can Parents Do?
A good way to prevent underage and binge drinking is to have conversations with your kids before they ever set foot on a college campus. Did you know if kids have their first drink before the age of 15, they have a 40 - 50% chance of developing an alcohol use disorder. However, if they wait until they're 21, it drops to only a 3% chance! Explain the dangers of underage drinking to your kids and start the conversations early.

Our Darien and Greenwich Together are two great local resources to check out for resources, tips and conversation starters.
