Reduced Tolerance

 

continued

In Dexter, where the rate of alcohol- related motor vehicle crashes among youth is almost three times higher than the county average, the Michigan Office of Drug Control Policy is funding a one-year program to reduce underage drinking. It includes a media campaign discouraging parent-hosted drinking parties.

Parents are a focus in Saline as well-though no students were involved, last year, a group of Saline parents were found drinking alcohol in the high school parking lot on a party bus hired to carry students to the prom.

"Parents need permission to be parents again," says Schuby. "They need to control their own home and backyard. They need to learn how to say no."    (end of article)
