Tips to Avoid Drinking

Here’s How:

  1. If you are unsure if non-alcoholic beverages will be available, bring your own.
  2. Stay away from the bar area.
  3. If offered a drink, just say, ‘No, thank you.’ You do not have to explain.
  4. If there is food available, be sure to eat, so that you are not hungry.
  5. If you feel that you are becoming tempted to drink, leave early.
  6. Stay busy. Talk to others, dance, etc. 
  7. Don’t give yourself time to think about the fact that you are not drinking.
  8. Don’t drink, no matter what!


  1. They will never know that you only have cola in your glass.
  2. Arrive late and leave early.

#53 Days To FASDay – Parent to parent support

Some of your ideas won’t work and that’s okay – you tried anyway!

In 2009,  Deb and Jodee tried a Family Support Show called

TOOLBOX PARENT RADIO to get the word out about living,

loving and laughing with atypical children and adults.

Since we didn’t have enough listeners – we got shut down, but not shut up!

Each week we hosted special guests that open our eyes to new ideas and provide us with new tools to help parents and professionals live, love and care about atypical children and intense adults. We worked really hard on the shows and actually did 16 of them!

Don’t worry if your idea doesn’t work like you planned. It’s okay to try again later or another way.
Families with atypical kids are busy – REALLY busy – and life can turn around and spin in a moment.
