Alcohol Awareness Campaign PSA: Thoughts
DAD: Oh, hey bud.
DAD: Where you headed? SON: Uh, just going to hang out. DAD THINKING: It’s a school night.
With Gary and Todd?
Yeah. DAD THINKING: I’m not sure about those two.
I’ve been meaning to ask you…
DAD THINKING: This is tougher than I thought. Is there any drinking going on in this crowd?
I hope not, because alcohol can lead you to say things and do things that you really wish you hadn’t.
DAD THINKING: Isn’t this what you’re supposed to say? I know.
If any of your buddies ever pressure you to take a drink, just tell them you promised your dad you wouldn’t.
DAD THINKING: I’d do anything to keep you safe. Okay, I will.
DAD THINKING: I hope this is working. I promise.
SON THINKING: I love you too, dad. ANNOUNCER: They really do hear you.
ANNOUNCER: So start the conversation even before they’re teenagers.
SON: Good idea.
