ARE THEY SAFE TO DRIVE?
I always say, “Driver’s Licenses were invented so parents would learn to pray!” But seriously – what parent doesn’t worry about their kid’s driving – or the friends who drive them around?
Teach your kid to be aware of the FACTS about Blood Alcohol Levels (BAC) and what it means for their safety. This way they can know when to say, “NO” to driving, or accepting a ride from someone under the influence.
With the blood alcohol calculator below, you can estimate of how alcohol consumed will affect a person’s driving. You’re able to input weight, gender, hours since consumption and how many ounces someone’s had. There are also statistics about what is considered a standard drink, and the physical and mental effects of drinking alcohol. Teach YOUR teen how to use it!

Our painting classes are a lot of fun! I’ve been working with a lot of Girl Scout Troops and am also at the Grayslake Park District and Lake In The Hills starting next year. If you have a group of kids who would like to paint the characters and learn about the meaning of their trait, let’s talk soon. Perhaps you’re having a Birthday Party, a Scout Troop, a Leadership Group, a family event? We’d love to join in.
Have yourself a very Merry Christmas and remember that a child is listening to what you say, watching what you do and wanting to be just like you.
Be of good character!
KIDS that are busy developing their talents and abilities are less likely to fall into the temptations of drugs and alcohol.
