Description
Program Description
"Recognizing that alcohol and substance abuse was reaching into younger age levels, and feeling that the issue required more than 30-second public service announcements, the Maine Association of Broadcasters and its member TV stations listed below co-produced and aired a half-hour program aimed at helping parents talk to their children about the problem. The program, which aired on Sept. 3, 1998, used situation-related discussions and role-playing to encourage parents to open up communications with their children. 'What Do You Say'' is a sequel to a one-hour program, 'Straight Up: Talking to Your Kids About Drinking,' which was co-produced by Maine TV stations under MAB's auspices and simulcast in April 1997. Whereas 'straight Up' was more factual in nature, describing the physical effects and social consequences of underage drinking, 'What Do You Say'' aimed to give parents some tools and techniques to help their children deal with alcohol-related situations and to recognize how their own behavior sends messages about drinking and drug use. [As a footnote, Maine radio stations donated several thousand dollars worth of air time to the promotion of this program.]"--1998 Peabody Awards entry form.
