There's no better cause for celebration than high-school graduation. But it's important that those graduation night parties don't involve underage drinking.
That was the impetus for Project Graduation, a national initiative that keeps newly-minuted graduates safe and sober in school-sanctioned, alcohol-free celebrations that often last through the night. But not every school offers those -- and not every graduate participates.
Whatever your graduate does to celebrate, parents should make sure they know where their graduates are and who they're with. Also, take the time to remind them about the dangers of underage drinking.
