The parenting style that works.
If you’re a parent of a teen, you know there’s a conversation you need to have about alcohol use. But how do you get started? Is there anything a parent can do that makes any real impact on teen drinking? There is. It’s a parenting style that has been shown to reduce risky behaviors in teens, including binge drinking. Some call it authoritative parenting. We like to call it heart-to-heart parenting. It’s based on setting clear expectations with your teen, clear boundaries and consistent consequences. But from a standpoint of warmth, listening and love. Throughout this website, you’ll find the tools and resources you need to learn and implement the parenting style that works.
