“Parents are the most important people in a child’s life, particularly when it comes to underage drinking,” says Ayotte. “As parents we owe a duty to make sure that our children are not engaging in underage drinking—that we aren’t enabling them to do that because it is bad for their health and creates dangerous situations. A parent’s role is to be a role model.” We invite you to learn more about Senator Ayotte.
