Bloomington/Normal Community Campus Committee is determined to counter binge drinking through campus and community partnerships.
We are glad you have taken a couple of minutes to see what BN Parents is all about. Welcome to our team of concerned parents.
The teen years often present some of our greatest parenting challenges. As our children become more independent they address temptations and dangers that can affect their health and safety, like alcohol and other drugs. It can at times seem our teens dismiss what we say and their peers have all of the power. However, you should know, when parents talk to their kids about underage drinking they listen. 83% of youth ages 10-18 years old, cite parents as the leading influence in their decision to not drink at all, or not to drink on occasion.
Our hope is the information contained on this site will assist you in guiding, directing and “coaching” your teen to make the best decisions surrounding alcohol use. We know it is a challenge – even some of the best-skilled and most caring parents in the world have problems with their teens. But, taking steps now CAN help!
