WAVE Tools for Parents Questions to Consider

We understand that talking to your child about alcohol or sexual assault may seem awkward. The following topics are only suggestions and may need to be modified to fit your family.

Regarding Alcohol:

  • What have you heard about alcohol at your school?
  • Where does alcohol fit in with your plans this year?
  • What would it take for you to think that alcohol was messing things up for you?

  • Regarding Sexual Assault:

  • What would you do if you felt like a situation was getting out of hand?
  • What kind of signals do you look for to know that things are moving too fast for your partner?
  • If something happens, do you know you can count on me to support you?
