We regularly run parent workshops across the country as part of our dedicated parents’ campaign. Ultimately our goal is to delay the age young people in Ireland have their first drink but to make this a reality, we strongly believe that parents have a crucial role to play. The workshop includes a Q&A section, a time when we can open up the discussion to allow parents the opportunity to share experiences, seek advice and separate the facts from the myths about young people and alcohol.
Ahead of the Junior Cert results being released next week, this is a great time to have a conversation about alcohol with your children. To help inform this, we wanted to share the most common things we hear from parents at our workshops and an explainer as to why they just aren’t true.
