Alcohol can do lasting damage to a kid’s grown brain, impacting everything from how they learn and make decisions to how they handle emotions. But you don’t need a big speech to help a kid understand the dangers of underage drinking. Start small instead. Having a lot of small, casual talks while at the store, in the drive-thru or between video games can make a big difference in a kid’s health. Start around age eight to prepare kids to make a lifetime of healthy decisions. Visit SmallTalksWI.org for tips, facts and more. This campaign is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
