Letting Under Age Teens Drink Alcohol Doesn’t Mean They Won’t Binge Drink


According to health campaigners parents are making a mistake by allowing their underage children to drink alcohol at home.

Parents incorrectly believe that giving alcohol to  their kids will deter them from doing it behind their backs and stop them from binge drinking in the future but a new campaign called ‘What’s the Harm’ is calling on parents to delay the moment their child starts drinking.

Apparently nearly half (43 per cent) of parents think their kids should have their first taste of alcohol before 15 but evidence shows that the earlier they start drinking, the heavier they drink later on in life.  See more at
