Alcohol can do lasting damage to a kid’s growing brain, impacting everything from how they learn and make decisions to how they handle emotions. But you don’t need a big speech to help a kid understand the dangers of under age drinking. Start small instead. Having a lot of small, casual talks – at the store, in the drive-thru, or between video games – can make a big difference in a kids health. Start around age eight to prepare kids to make a lifetime of healthy decisions. Visit SmallTalksWI.org for talk tips, facts, and more.
