Webinar: When alcohol, summer, COVID and teens intersect
Since Operation Parent’s webinar on alcohol in March, communities across the country have seen instore and online sales of alcohol skyrocket, and some parents relaxing abstinence rules at home to placate and bond with teens. Additionally, easing of social distancing orders in many parts of the country are coinciding with the start of summer, which is already a time of risk for alcohol abuse and drinking and driving with teens. Cooped up teens might be looking forward to blowing off steam…in unhealthy ways. Let’s discuss how we can be prepared to parent during these times of transition and uncertainty to keep our teens safe. Presenters are Christine Storm and Kate Appleman of Caron Treatment Center.
