Teenage parties provide young people with valuable opportunities to develop a range of social skills that they need to relate effectively with their peers. As they get older, alcohol is likely to become a part of these social gatherings and, unfortunately, things can go wrong.
Using the latest research, this presentation will examine what we know about school-based young people, alcohol use and its use at parties.
This parent session will provide some practical strategies and simple tips for parents who are considering allowing their teen to attend teen parties, helping parents to ensure their teens are as safe as possible.
