60 - 1 Minute Conversations

It's not the one, 60-minute conversation.
It's 60, one-minute conversations.

Take advantage of opportunities to have conversations with your child about alcohol. Whether it's in the car, watching TV, or during a meal: share your reasons why they should be alcohol-free. Remember, short conversations that occur more frequently are more effective.

Check out the messages from Edgewood and Northwood Middle School staff below to start the conversations!
