Prom safety: kids need parents not pals

In an effort to promote a safe prom season, John Knight, MD, director of Children’s Hospital Boston’s Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Research(CeASAR) launched, a website that explains the medical and social dangers of underage drinking. Here is a sample of the kind of advice offered to viewers.

In the days leading up to prom Thrive will feature more advice from Knight on how to keep kids safe during this fun, but potentially dangerous time of year.  Parents are  strongly urged to go to to see all these videos, as well a wealth of other information on the medical, legal and emotional consequences of underage drinking.
