Drunk Driving Chat

Make sure your child/children know they can depend on you to pick them up, anytime, anywhere 24 hours a day.

  • Praise them when they do call you for a ride
  • Depending on the circumstances, reward them.
  • Discuss why you are a better alternative than hitch-hiking
  • Discuss what can happen if they get into a strange car
  • Discuss what can happen if they try to get home with a friend that has been drinking alcohol.
  • Point out news articles about kids that make the wrong decision.

This may seem harsh, in your face reality, but it’s better than the alternative.
