Talking to your children about alcohol and other drugs

Talking with teens about alcohol and drinking can be difficult for parents -- but emergency room doctors and MADD just made it a little easier.

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) teamed up with MADD to create and release a new, free handbook as part of MADD's "Power of Parents, It's Your Influence" campaign.

The handbook is part of the lead-up to PowerTalk 21 Day, scheduled for April 21, a national day for parents to talk to their teens about alcohol.

Other online resources for parents are Parents - The Anti-Drug and Start Talking Now.
