MORE HEALTH has partnered for the 2nd year in a row with Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office, Hillsborough County Anti-Drug Alliance, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue, Allstate Foundation, Jeeves Law Firm to promote a safe prom season to Bay Area students. Here are some tips for both parents and students:
Have a conversation with your son or daughter and share with them your expectations.
Let them know that they can call you at any time if they feel unsafe or are experiencing
peer pressure to make bad choices.
Know what your child's plans are before, during and after the prom. Consider teaming
up with other parents to host an alcohol freeafter party.
Establish regular check-in times and keep your cell phone nearby in case your child needs to reach you.
We recommend going with friends and be sure select a safe and responsible driver.
You might also consider a car or ride share service as another transportation option.
Alcohol is never acceptable for prom or at any time for persons under age 21 and drugs
are simply an absolute bad idea, not to mention they're illegal. Alcohol and drugs
impair your judgment and may result in you or someone else being harmed.
