Students in need

Recent studies show that 75% of teenagers seeing photos on social networks of other teens smoking weed or drinking encourages them to party in the same way. Teens who have come across these kinds of photos online are 4 times more likely to have used marijuana and more than 3 times more likely to have consumed alcohol. Social media has also begun to desensitize children at a younger age as well — 90% of these kids saw their peers in these photos online before they were even 16 years old.

  • Check in with your teen at various points throughout the night.
  • Talk with parents of your teen’s friends. Find out if they also have a clear “no-use” message with their teen.
  • Have a plan. Talk to your teen about potentially risky situations they may face, such as being offered alcohol/other drugs or riding in a car with someone who is under the influence. Together, come up with ways on how they can make the healthy choice to remain substance-free. 
  • Call the parent who is hosting the party and ask if there is anything you can do to help (do they want you to help with food) and to expect your child at their house.
  • You or your teen should not hesitate to call the police if the party gets out of control.
