Let them know they can call you whenever they feel unsafe to drive. Your kids are going to get into drinking and possibly experiment with other substances some time in their lives. Don’t focus solely on lecturing them about not doing drugs but let them know they can call on you for a safe ride home if anything ever put them under the influence.
