Power of Parents:
A Special Presentation by MADD

Free Parenting Webinar
September 15 | 4pm

Science shows that a child's brain works differently from an adult brain and is still in a critical period of development well into their 20's. Alcohol interferes with the growth of both brains and bodies. As a parent, you have the power to equip your child to make smarter, safer choices and to help prevent tragedies.

MADD's Power of Parents program empowers parents of middle school and high school students to have ongoing, intentional conversations about the dangers and consequences of underage drinking. Join us!
