Table Talks are opportunities for parents and other adults to talk openly in a judgment-free environment about how to begin a dialogue with their teens regarding underage drinking and illegal substance use.
Table Talks can be held in a parent’s home, community center, faith organization, or other similarly comfortable location. It is a great opportunity to invite other parents (from sports teams, extra-curricular activities, faith community, neighborhood, etc.).
