Be A Parent. Not A Peer - WKRN News 2

Be A Parent. Not A Peer

Nashville Prevention Partnership is asking parents to make an active pledge to "Be A Parent. Not A Peer."  Join the movement, ask others to pledge and help us spread the word!

Enabling underage drinking is dangerous, not to mention irresponsible.  It can result in not only legal consequences, for both adults and teens, but can cause a variety of health risks as well.

Even if you don't allow underage drinking in your home, other parents might. Talk to other parents and openly ask them if this is a rule in their home. Don't let your kids spend time with enablers and don't be one yourself!

Drug Disposal

You have the power to protect yourself, family, friends and even strangers from the harms of over the counter and prescription medicine abuse.  Properly disposing of expired and unused drugs and medications could ultimately save a life.

DO NOT FLUSH prescription drugs down the toilet unless the label and/or information specifically instruct you to do so!  The safest way to dispose of unwanted or expired medications are through community drug disposal boxes and "drug take-back" programs.  In fact, Nashville has eight locations where Metro residents can bring in and dispose of unused and/or expired OTC and prescribed medications.
