Happy Thanksgiving

The holidays are here! It’s a fun time for family and friends. It can also be stressful for many parents and their children especially with the increase of alcohol everywhere. There will be parties and many opportunities for teens to drink underage. Here’s

party with old friends back from college. Learn what every parent needs to know about teenage parties this holiday season!
