Game Helps Parents and Children Talk About Alcohol

A new DVD game designed to be played on a computer brings parents and children together to talk about the dangers of underage drinking.

Ready, Set, Listen!, developed by SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), offers a fun and interactive experience that introduces and reinforces the importance of family discussion on an important subject.

The game has two goals:

  • To increase the number of conversations that parents and caregivers have with children age 9 to 13 about the harms of underage alcohol use.
  • To increase the percentage of children, parents, and caregivers who see underage alcohol use as harmful.

The computer game evolved from a traditional board game format and is available in English and Spanish.
