PSHE/PSD/PSE is an ideal context for teaching young people about the issues involved in drinking alcohol. Encouraging students to consider the causes and consequences of behaviour, and to understand what laws exist and why they are in place, will help them to make informed decisions. The worksheets found in the PSHE Classroom are intended for a specific project about alcohol but can be adapted easily for work in related topics (such as Crime, Drug Misuse and Sex Education).
Resources for use in schools
Resources supported by the PSHE Association are designed to help parents to talk to their children about alcohol in an engaging and proactive way.
The presentation and leaflets give tips and guidance about being a good role model, the law and government recommendations on responsible drinking, how much is too much and how keeping tabs on their kids and sticking to rules really makes a difference.
The resources include the following presentations:
- 1) Talking to kids about alcohol: at what age should I talk to my child about drinking?
- 2) Talking to kids about alcohol: Some facts about teenage drinking and parent power
