Underage Alcohol Use: Summary and Next Steps
Underage alcohol use is a serious problem. Many teens are experimenting with and using alcohol on a regular basis—how can you protect your child from the dangers of underage alcohol use? By preparing your daughter or son to deal with peer pressure and negative situations, and taking appropriate action if she or he does experiment with alcohol, you can be sure that you are providing the best possible support for your child. You may even find that you’re making a positive impact in your community by keeping other kids away from alcohol.
