Alcohol awareness month & 8 resources for sports parents

There’s a lot of good reading for sports parents on the web, and today I’d simply like to point you in their direction.

Alcohol Awareness Month

First, and foremost, I’d like to mention that April is Alcohol Awareness month. The conversation about the dangers of underage drinking should start early in your home. If you only read one article on this whole page, please take a few minutes to read information put out by  The Century Council:

“No kidding, kids are actually listening to their parents when it comes to talking about underage drinking.”

  3. I always guide my children towards the reality of life, I want to expose my son in different sports than having a peer influence with any unusual activities…

  4. I am looking forward for some informative and interactive things which can help quit alcohol. This would certainly help counseling the alcoholics among friends and family.

  5. I think sport is the best solution. I’m trying to find something for my kid. It’s actually hard, because you have to choose something really-really exciting. Snowboarding didn’t work for him :(

  6. Great post, thanks for sharing with us these stuff, I do love to check every linked topics…

  7. This was a wonderful post, Janis, and I’m really glad that you’ve made this resource available to parents out there.

    I was born in Australia and – I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the culture there – but Australian’s have a very relaxed and social attitude when it comes to alcohol and drinking. I’d be uber concerned if I were a parent having to tackle this issue so it’s uplifting to see you being so active in providing parents with useful and insightful resources on how to broach the topic with their children.

    Magnficent work, as per usual ;)
