Pledge to a Safe Prom
Prom is something teens look forward to for quite some time, a milestone of high school. As a parent, you want to make sure they have a safe and memorable night.
“Talk. They Hear You.” Family Agreement Form
The Agreement states:
As your mom/dad/caregiver, I pledge to do my part in helping to keep you alcohol free. I promise to talk with you about the dangers and harmful effects of underage drinking. I pledge to create an alcohol-free environment that is fun and safe for you and your friends. I also pledge to pick you up at any time or place if you find yourself in any uncomfortable situation where underage drinking or other risks to your health and safety are involved.
By our shared commitment to this pledge, I agree that I will engage in constructive conversations with you about the dangers, including that of underage drinking.
As your son/daughter, I understand that alcohol can harm my body and my mind and make me say and do things I might regret. I pledge to avoid situations where my friends and peers are drinking underage, and I promise to call or text you to help remove me from those situations, if they arise.
By our shared commitment to this pledge, I agree that I will not engage in underage drinking.
Will talking make a difference?
Three out of four teens say parents are the biggest influence on their decision on whether or not to drink.
