By the end of 8th grade, one of every three Cambridge teens has used alcohol. Most of them get the alcohol from a parent, another adult, or from home without anyone knowing. Parents can keep their children safe by talking with them about the reality of drinking and setting boundaries. The Reality Check campaign helps parents be clear with their teens about underage drinking, and connect with other parents and resources.
