The influence of parents on children’s attitudes and behaviors is immense, even in the face of countless environmental pressures to engage in unhealthy behaviors. A nationally representative survey of 1,014 teens examined the potential that parents have to reduce the risk of adolescent substance use as their children move from their impressionable pre-adolescent years to the more intransigent teen years. In addition to discussing this survey, presenters will share the findings from qualitative research that identified effective messages to motivate parents to take action, especially those concerned about teens who have begun to use substances but do not have a substance use disorder.
