Text Message To Avoid Alcohol

Let’s face it: texting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to talk today. Not only that but it is also an increasingly popular way for parents to communicate with their children.

In today’s high tech world talking to your child about the dangers of underage drinking has never been easier. Bellow you will find a few sample text messages that you can use or adopt to start the alcohol conversation and keep it going.

 1. Be careful tonight. If your friends offer you a drink, just say you promised me no.  

2. Have fun tonight! Keep your curfew in mind. Call me if you need anything. 

3. Remember, alcohol can lead you 2 say things and do things u wish u hadn’t. 

4.  Hey! Have fun tonight. Wanted 2 remind you not 2 drink at the party.
