  • Learn about alcohol-use trends in Alberta, including specific information about youth drinking
  • Set the stage for a conversation about alcohol with your children
  • Improve your children’s communication skills
  • Understand how to support your children to make good decisions and apply critical thought
  • Discuss peer pressure, rules and boundaries with your children
