Mother’s Against Drunk Driving Completes Shoot for “The Balancing Act”
on Lifetime TV – Promotes The Power of Parents  

(Pompano Beach, FL – April 10, 2012) Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) recently completed their shoot for the hit morning TV show “The Balancing Act.”  The segment, which features Jan Withers, National President of MADD, and Ken Griffith, from the National Association for Secondary Principals (NAASP) will air as part of the show’s “Parent Teacher Corner” series in April on Lifetime Television.

Statistics show that teen alcohol use kills over 6,000 people each year, more than all illegal drugs combined. MADD has embarked on a program called “The Power of Parents” to highlight the pivotal role parents play in their underage child’s decision to not drink and drive, and to hopefully abstain from alcohol altogether.

During the segment, Withers and Griffith will address how parents can encourage and set an example for their kids to not drink. MADD’s “The Power of Parents” program aims to empower parents with critical parenting and communication skills to help shape teenager choices.

“MADD is pleased that “The Balancing Act” will help educate parents about having an informed and effective conversation with their teens about underage drinking.  We couldn’t reduce underage drinking without parent shows like “The Balancing Act” to help spread the word about our Power of Parents program,” says Jan Withers, MADD National President.
