Beware of Regular Teen Drinking

Although there are some parents who think it’s okay to give their teenage children the occasional drink of alcohol, new research shows that this could be problematic down the line, possibly leading to alcohol abuse problems in adulthood.

The study involved more than 9000 young people, revealing that in those under 17 years of age drinking alcohol each week, there was a 2 to threefold increase in the odds of binge drinking, drink driving and alcohol dependence later in life.

Parents should consider whether they are doing more harm than good by giving their teenage children alcohol in the hope that it will stop them from drinking behind their parents’ backs.
