Under-Aged Drinking

Many parents don’t wanna think about it. They don’t believe it’ll happen in their family. It’s under-aged drinking. Chances are, your teen will drink sometime during the high school years.

There’s a trend called, “performance- based parenting.”  It’s actually fairly common in homes across the country.  But basing relationships on performance isn’t healthy! Performance- based parenting means that your child believes your love is conditional.  If they do something wrong… you won’t love them anymore.  If they do something right …they you’re your favor.
