Because sensible alcohol consumption is prevalent in numerous social settings, condemning drinking carte blanche is not a credible message to young people, so, rather than producing a DVD covering the usual information about alcohol, we have focused purely on the dangers of binge drinking. This is for two reasons. Firstly, we believe being offered alcohol is one of the first opportunities children are given to find the wherewithal to be assertive in relation to potential problems with drugs. Secondly, quite simply, every year around 30,000 people die from alcohol related illness. The two factors are not unrelated.
“Kick It” – Binge Drinking is approximately 10 minutes in length and delivers a powerful anti-binge drinking message aimed at children aged ten to sixteen and is therefore suitable for Key Stages 3 & 4. The DVD covers topics such as binge drinking effects, alcohol information and health issues, peer pressure and personal safety.
DVDs cost £15+VAT each including postage.
