Is It OK to Let Teenagers Drink Alcohol?
There’s always a dispute between whether or not it’s a good idea for parents to let their teenagers drink alcohol. Does it discourage use later? Does it prepare them for when theyre in college? Iis it a good or bad idea to let them drink early and is it OK if theyre not out of control? I have way to much of an opinion on this. A new study came out with a verdict on the situation so we don't have to duke it out ourselves.
The findings by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism’s Division of Epidemiology and Prevention Research show that when teenagers drink alcohol early, the more likely they are to start jumping into bad habits. Many parents think that the way children drink under supervision is the way they will drink when they’re with their friends.
What do you think, though?
