We're helping you answer your kids’ toughest questions about underage drinking during April Awareness Month. Worried about being put on the spot? Explain that, while it is always harmful when children drink, it is safe for most adults if they drink in moderation. “One glass of wine or one beer with dinner can be a nice treat for a grown-up, just like one piece of cake is for you. But I’m careful not to drink too much.” Get more talk tips here: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/small-talks/start-talking.htm
