It’s a topic that seems to be popping up time and time again, the issue of whether parents should give their teenage children alcohol.
A recent study found that how often a teenager drinks can be an indicator of problems later on in their lives.

Researchers looked at 9000 young Australians between the ages of 13 and 30 over a period of 17 years.
