As a parent, it can be a challenge to help our children make decisions about drink and drugs. But over the school-free Christmas holidays, it's especially important that they know and understand the facts. So that's why, at this time of excess, I'd like to recommend a website called TheSite.org.
Charity-run and written for young people, its information on drugs and alcohol is straight-talking, reliable and non-patronising.
Its unique up-front style means that, although much of it is alien to we parents, it's a fantastic way to make sure your teens know the facts to keep them safe, healthy and clued-up - over Christmas and into many new years.
