MADD Blog Tour

Two years ago I had to go to a funeral of a mother leaving behind 3 kids and a husband. She got hit by a drunk teenage driver on her way home from buying milk for her baby. All I remember is her kids asking their mom to wake up. "Mommy wake Up" We as parents need to be responsible enough to talk to our kids. There are so many resources out there for us to use. My son is only 10 going on 11 soon. I think about his friends and his influences. All the peer pressure I faced.
We went out this weekend. And we saw first hand so many underage kids drinking. All along I wonder if their parents talk to them. My mom told us no drinking was allowed. We are Christian we are not suppose to drink. blah, blah, blah, is all I and my brothers heard. But as I walk out and saw all those kids thinking that holding a cup and drinking it made them look cool. I wondered what am I going to tell my son. How am I going to handle this situation?
I was glad that there is information for us. Have you heard of MADD? Take a look and learn more. Let's be educated, so we can educate our kids.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has a lot of parents. MADD is committed to helping parents, especially those with high schoolers, to navigate talking to teens about alcohol. This blog is dedicated to the passionate MADD staff and volunteers that have a lot to say about the Power of Parents (It's Your Influence) by MADD.
