Your Son is Growing Up, and Fitting in is Hard • Your son is still a teenager. As children reach adolescence, “fitting in” becomes vital to their social survival. • Your son’s growing independence, whether visible or not, is heavily dependent upon his outward opinions about alcohol.
Making a Connection Works Wonders • You’ll need to foster a personal connection with your son before bringing up the dangers, responsibilities and potential downfalls of alcohol consumption. • If you approach the situation bluntly, you’ll conflict with your growing son’s need to be understood.
Be Supportive, but Be Firm • When it’s time to bring up alcohol, be prepared to give a supportive, but firm response. • Be supportive, and let him know exposure to alcohol doesn’t immediately put him in trouble. It isn’t fair, anyway, to punish a child who’s simply witnessed alcohol presentation.
When Facing Alcohol Abuse • In some cases, teens fall into heavy alcohol abuse. If your son is struggling with alcoholism, legal troubles or health problems, consider discussing alcoholic rehab centers. • Work with your son, not against him. Show your son you care about his health and help him understand that underage consumption can damage his future before it even begins.
