Safe Homes Smart Parties

Common Sense Parent Tools

During spring time, end of the school year, graduations and celebrations, we face a challenge in keeping our kids safe and healthy. There are many pressures drawing youth to unhealthy behaviors with drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. The Safe Homes Smart Parents® campaign addresses these pressures and helps adults to be aware and set firm guidelines surrounding acceptable choices and behaviors, especially during this time when socializing peaks.
