A Parent’s Promise, Clinton’s Safe Home Parent Network


What is “A Parent’s Promise”?

A Parent’s Promise is a pledge to set age-appropriate family guidelines for our children and know where they are going, whom they are with, what they will be doing, and when they are expected to return home. Parents and guardians who sign the pledge will actively supervise all youth gatherings, will not allow the possession or use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs by youth, and set expectations to supervise youth parties to ensure that these social gatherings remain drug and alcohol free. The promise encourages parents or youth to call the police at 669-0451 to report underage drinking, drug use and unsupervised parties. You may remain anonymous upon request. Membership in the program is free. Once the pledge is signed and written permission is given to share names and phone numbers, the membership directory will be emailed to the parent network. Directories are updated quarterly and distributed via email to all registered members. Please call Clinton Youth & Family at 669-1103 to request “A Parent’s Promise” brochure and pledge form.  Sponsored by The First Selectman’s Task Force on Substance Abuse and Clinton Youth & Family Service Bureau.
