Party Safely

Hosting a Party? What Adults Can Do

  • Be aware that most teens who drink will drink at home or at their friend’s home.
  • Refuse to purchase alcohol or marijuana for anyone under 21.
  • Refuse to allow anyone under 21 to drink alcohol or use marijuana in your home or on your property.
  • Be a good role model. Show teens you can have fun without alcohol or drugs.
  • Connect with other parents and ask for their contact information. Getting to know other parents can help inform you about their rules and expectations.
  • Hold your ground! Don’t provide, ignore or excuse the use of alcohol or drugs by youth.
