Teen Came Home Drunk. A mother wonders what she can say or do to stress to her daughter that drinking and drugs will hurt her.
If it's unacceptable to you that your child is drinking alcohol, then you need to say so, clearly. Show your feelings, rather than worry yourself sick and getting angry.
Here's my advice: Set boundaries. Maybe start with an earlier curfew or a regular check-in phone call. You don't have to go from 0 to Breathalyzer Mom overnight.
