When you send your children off to college, you can only hope you have prepared them well for what lies ahead. This means providing them with the tools they need to make wise choices and to know when they are in risky situations. However, when a child is suddenly independent, your words of warning may quickly fade from his or her head.
This may be especially true when it comes to consuming alcohol. You may expect your child to party with friends from time to time, but it is difficult to avoid the frightening statistics that place drunk driving as the number one cause of death among college students. For this reason, college towns and campus administrators take it seriously when a student is arrested for DWI.
