"When my girls reach high school age I'll breathe a lot easier knowing they're at parties where no alcohol is allowed."
Stephen D., Deep River
"I wouldn't serve my own high school child alcohol, let alone another person's! Parents have to support each other - I've always felt this way."
Jennifer DeKine, Middletown
"I don't allow underage drinking at my house and I expect the same from other parents. I ask questions because I love my kids and want them and their friends to be safe."
Elizabeth Dean, Westbrook
"I have never poured a drink for a kid under 21 and I never will. We as a community should come together to support Responsible Hosting."
James Lessor, Middletown
"Keeping my teens safe by never providing liquor to them or their friends is one of the most important parts of my job as a parent. "No" always means "yes" to a bright future."
Jane Moen, Deep River
"I would rather be respected as a parent who instilled responsible behavior, than a parent acting like a kid to win a popularity contest. Adults don't allow underage drinking."
Jean C., Portland
"The teen brain is still developing and any exposure to alcohol or drugs will delay and/or impair its development and could cause irreversible, permanent damage. Keep your body healthy."
Lori Coco, Clinton
"If you want to be the "Cool Parent," be the parent who listens, who opens their home to young people, and who cares about their health."
Maura Carver, Deep River
"Doing the right and lawful thing hasn't always been easy or "hip", but the bottom line is we're parents and not our children's "friends." Let's work together to act responsibily."
Tanja Moriarty, Higganum
