Responsible Use

Listen to BC parents discuss their challenges and successes in talking about alcohol use with their kids. Responsible use is about helping children develop good decision-making skills, promoting a sense of responsibility for their own safety and for the safety of others, and by being a good role model when using alcohol ourselves. Parents can help protect kids from alcohol related harms by promoting responsible use.


Communication

Listen to BC parents discuss their challenges and successes in talking about alcohol use with their kids. Parents are the best influence on their child’s current and future decisions about alcohol use. Open communication creates a trusting, supportive environment. It provides a stable base for kids to learn about alcohol, so they can protect themselves from harm throughout their entire lives.


Resilience

Listen to BC parents discuss their challenges and successes in talking about alcohol use with their kids. Resilience is the ability to cope with life’s challenges, and bounce back from tough situations. We are all born with a capacity for resilience. But how it develops is affected by our environment. One way parents can help promote healthy decisions about alcohol is to help them build resilience.
