The summer months are when many tweens try alcohol or other drugs for the first time. Studies show that teens going to college often begin binge drinking the summer after they graduate high school. If your teen or tween has the summer off, it’s important to encourage them to stay busy with healthy summer activities.

Encourage your teens and tweens to be active and involved, whether it’s through volunteer work, a fun program at their local library, or a summer sports league. Feeling like they matter in the community helps prevent youth – especially boys – from making dangerous decisions.
