Teenagers and Acohol

When children become teenagers, they usually want to spend more time with their friends and will often find themselves in places where others are drinking alcohol.  This Australian government website and associated booklet contains information to help parents and guardians discuss and manage alcohol use by teenagers.

 

Some of the questions addressed are:

Why is alcohol use by teenagers considered risky?

At what age should parents begin talking about alcohol with their children?

 

There are also drug service phone numbers and a standard drink guide.
