​​Tips on how to talk to your teens about your expectations for prom and graduation. 

Parents and party hosts, please remember it's illegal to provide teens with alcohol. Make expectations clear regarding alcohol and other drugs.


Plan ahead. Figure out transportation and know all the locations your teen might be during the weekend. For example, before dinner, before and after the dance, etc.

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.

​​Fact:  When kids drink, parents pay

In Illinois, the Social Host Law, which went into effect
January 1, 2013, holds adults

accountable for underage drinking that occurs in the home. There are several parts to

this law.
• If you allow or host a party at your house ( includes, but is
not limited to not only

residences, but any property controlled by an individual, including a hotel/motel room,

limousine, bus, boat, or rental unit) and provide alcohol to people under age 21 (or if you

know or should have known that they are drinking alcohol), you may be charged with a

Class A misdemeanor. This will result in a fine. Note that you are held responsible 

regardless if you are the one who provides the alcohol AND regardless if you are home or not.
• If a minor who was drinking at your house injures or kills someone, you may be charged with

a Class 4 felony. This could result in both a fine and/or jail time.
• You will not be guilty of violating the law if you request help from the police to help remove the

underage drinkers and stop the gathering. This only holds if you make the first phone to call—

not if the police show up after a complaint from a neighbor and then you ask for help.
• In addition, depending on local community ordinances, you may also be held responsible for

the costs of emergency services/law enforcement that respond to a call, attorney fees and

other costs associated.

 Fact: When kids drink alcohol, 65% of the time it is consumed at home or a friend’s house.  
As responsible parents you need to not only prevent access to alcohol in your home but also be a positive role model. Your kids need to know where you stand on underage drinking through ongoing conversations about consequences.  And, you need to give them the tools and the ammo to make good decisions about drinking in the many different scenarios they may encounter—at a friend’s house, at a party, after school.

 Many towns, cities and villages also have local ordinances that prohibit social hosting and underage drinking.

How do vapes & e-cigs work?

​​​A R E   H E R E !​

​​Thursday, April 27th, GNCYheld a presentation on how to use the “Talk. They Hear You.” App & how - and when - to start the conversation about alcohol. In case you missed it, here is the information we discussed.


​Vapes are devices that heat liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales. The liquid usually has nicotine, flavoring and other additives.


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.

Parents are the #1 reason

children choose not to drink.
