Lt. Governor James R. “Duke” Aiona Jr. announced through a press release, the issuing of Tagalog and Ilokano language translations of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism publication on underage drinking, “Make a Difference: Talk to Your Child About Alcohol.”
The brochure, also available in English, is geared towards parents and guardians of young people ages 10 n 14, and contains valuable information on the dangers of underage drinking. It also provides parents guidance on how to discuss underage drinking issues with their children, and offers specific strategies on how to keep children alcohol free.
