Great tool!

I didn’t know how to talk to my daughter about alcohol but she’s turning 13 in about a month and I thought it was time. This app really eased some of my nerves going into this conversation as I was able to play out some scenarios, get a feel for how the conversation would go, and be ready for some challenges that may have arose. When I actually went to talk to her, she was actually more receptive and willing to talk than I was expecting, and I think because I was so comfortable and prepared, the conversation went smoothly. There will definitely be more talks in the future but this app really helped me prepare!!
