And in some cases, you could even lose your home, car or boat.
Don’t serve minors. Not during the Super Bowl, not during graduation parties, never.
Parents: it is illegal to give alcohol to your teen’s friends under the age of 21 under any circumstances, even in your own home, even with their parent’s permission.
You cannot knowingly allow a person under 21, other than your own child, to remain in your home or on your property while consuming or possessing alcohol.
If you break the law, you can face jail time and/or an unlimited fine at the discretion of the judge. Everything and everyone associated with a violation can be subject to civil liability.
Please help us in preventing underage drinking this Super Bowl Sunday.
Refuse to supply alcohol to anyone under 21. Be at home when your teen has a party, and make sure that alcohol is not brought into your home or property by you teen’s friends.
Start a conversation with other parents about not providing alcohol at other events your child will be attending. Create alcohol-free opportunities and activities in your home during the Super Bowl so teens feel welcome.
And please, report underage drinking to local law enforcement.
The tip line is anonymous, confidential and free; and available to call 24 hours a day.
