Fact-based videos promote positive, life-affirming values. This video provides alcohol facts for kids. For example, alcohol is the most abused drug in the United States. It is the leading cause of automobile accidents; it is a significant factor in the incidence of suicide every year; and it causes irreparable damage to the alcohol abuser's health. A young boy, tempted to take his first drink, wrestles with the decision on a deserted baseball diamond. There he encounters a spectral ball player, who guides him through the decision-making process. Alcohol: What About It? helps students become aware of immediate and far-reaching effects of alcohol use. It explores these topics:
  • What about the effects of alcohol use and abuse?
  • What about strategies for dealing with stress, conflict, or negative feelings?
  • What about decision-making, problem-solving, and assertiveness skills?
  • What about the value of supportive personal relationships at home, at school, and in the community?

This valuable life skill works for much more than just alcohol use."School Library Journal
