Underage drinking consequences will be discussed tonight, March 9, 2017 at Cheatham County Central High School in the theater. Tonight’s event is hosted by Cheatham County Community Enhancement Coalition.
Underage alcohol consumption doesn’t only affect a vast majority of children within Cheatham County communities but communities nationwide. At some point children, students, will face peer pressure, possibly succumbing, or become curious as to why “drinking” is “cool”, leading some to try drinking, potentially placing themselves in a dangerous situation. Talking to children, students, about underage drinking can be difficult but it’s essential to have open communication, staying informed to educate and reduce the number of children, young adults and families affected by the consequences of alcohol consumption.
Tonight’s town hall meeting will equip parents, teachers, officials, influential adults in the lives of children and young adults on how to address this issue with confidence.
A mother, speaker with M.A.D.D., Mothers Against Drunk Driving, will be sharing her story tonight, presenting a scenario every parent prays they never experience. The community is encouraged to attend and hear tonight’s message.
