Ailish Manners's insight:

The things they say in this is so true. Most of the teenagers are doing it only because other people are doing it. I think that most of the girls are only doing it to get a guys attention so that the guys know that a girl is out there for them. The alcohol does so many wrong things to your body! and also can effect you so badly for when you are older!

Ailish Manners's insight:

It;s a shame that these things happen to people. They lose their life for trying to have fun, but what they don't know is that are doing it in the wrong way. They think that you have to have drugs and drink to have fun but you don't. That's how people lose their life, towards drugs and alcohol used together.

Ailish Manners's insight:

This is horrible to hear that a young girl has died from having drugs. Only 1 and a half, But they have said that she had an overdose. The poor girl was only having a bit of fun and thought it would be good to have some drugs. It's horrible to think that you can't go out with your friends and not be able to have some fun without someone getting hurt.

STOP THE BINGE DRINKING CULTURE

STOP THE BINGE DRINKING CULTURE | Ailish's yr9 journal | Scoop.it
To provide New Zealanders with information about the Binge Drinking Culture which has exploded in growth since the relaxation of New Liquor Law in 1989.

Via Holly Hutt
Ailish Manners's insight:

This is very true. When it comes to drinking it can do so many wrongs things but not just to yourself but others as well. It can break up a relationship with your family or a best friend. Alcohol is like a villain goes and does bad things and won't stop until you or somebody else does something about it.

Children inherit drug, alcohol habits from parents

Children inherit drug, alcohol habits from parents | Ailish's yr9 journal | Scoop.it

The study carried out by researchers from the Sam Houston State University discovered parents who abuse drug and alcohol are more likely to have children who pick up those same habits, as compared to parents who do not use substances. For their study, the Sam Houston State University researchers monitored the patterns of substance use in families for 27 years. The substance use data were collected over three generations as a part of the National Youth Survey Family Study, involving 655 parents and 1,227 children who were surveyed from 1988 through to 2004.

Ailish Manners's insight:

This is something that I think most children do, If they see their parents drinking or having drugs they will think that it is fine for them to do it. If the parents are getting drunk all the time and having fun the kids will do same thing but they don't know what kind of trouble they can get into. Like also what it does to your body.

Increased numbers of babies with alcohol poisoning from mums ...

Increased numbers of babies with alcohol poisoning from mums ... | Ailish's yr9 journal | Scoop.it
ALARMING numbers of pregnant women are putting their unborn babies at serious risk of being born with alcohol poisoning.
Ailish Manners's insight:

I think it is wrong how mother's are drinking alcohol when they are pregnant with a child. You can do so many wrong things to the child. When their born they may have many things wrong with their body. I think that if you're an alcoholic you shouldn't be able to have a baby or just give up on drinking. Because we all know that every woman would like a child but if you're drinking you shouldn't.

Ailish Manners's insight:

This must be so devastating for his family, having no idea what your child is going to be doing that night. 
I just find it horrible to think that drugs can do this to people. Having a child who had a normal life and then starts taking drugs must be hard for them to deal with. Cause you just get so addicted to them.

Parents key to stopping underage drinking

Parents key to stopping underage drinking | Ailish's yr9 journal | Scoop.it

"8% of teens who said their parents thought it was completely unacceptable for "someone your age" to drink were active drinkers; that compares with 47% of teens who said their parents thought it was either somewhat unacceptable, somewhat acceptable or completely acceptable."


Via Mel Riddile
Ailish Manners's insight:

This is a good story and is so true. If parents dot want their children growing up to be an alcoholic then they need to teach them that it is not the right thing to do. When they are going up be on top of it all the time I would say then that would get into their head that it is a horrible thing for them when they are still young. But the alcohol is also a good thing, it is something that you can enjoy when you are out with your friends and you want to have a good time together.

Why Younger And Younger Girls Are Binge Drinking

Why Younger And Younger Girls Are Binge Drinking | Ailish's yr9 journal | Scoop.it
Wild high school parties and binge drinking have long been the stuff of teen movies. But a new documentary, "Faded: Girls & Binge Drinking," paints a different, and less glorified, picture of underage drinking.

Via Lon Woodbury
Ailish Manners's insight:

It's sad to think that a young girl had died from binge drinking. But this is showing how bad it is. Now they are starting to say that young girls are getting binge drinking from hollywood movies and their trying to figure out what came first the drinking sense in the movie or just young girls drinking. From my point of view I think that it is both, young girls watching the movies and saying yeah this is fine lets do what their doing and we might become famous or something like that. And then you have where the young girls see older girls do it and think oh I wanna be like them and do them sort of things. So really I think it comes from both ways.

Sotiris Haris's curator insight, June 23, 2015 6:46 AM

This article provides an insight of how dangerous and serious binge drinking is for young ages. It explores ideas of how binge drinking can orginate from and the consequences of the choice of drinking excessively. These ideas are further emphasised by accounts retold by victims/experienced teenagers. Chosen due to it relation to our class lessons which conducted of the learning of binge drinking, and how it can affect our lives and the choices it can make us choose. Strongly agreeing with the article that binge drinking should be taken seriously and that teenagers should be aware of the consequences of drinking excessively. Teenagers should be prepared for the night and know when to stop. Especially when this article targets young girls into being pressured to fit in by binge drinking.

This is so true. This is happening all over the world now and it is so wrong! The parents are doing wrong job by letting their children go out at night with their friends and be drinking or even if they don't that they are going out they should be talking to the parents about what the kids will be doing that day!

First sips of alcohol start in second grade

First sips of alcohol start in second grade | Ailish's yr9 journal | Scoop.it
The age at which many children in the U.S. take their first sip of alcohol is surprisingly young, finds a new study in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

Via Barbara Wood, Ph.D. www.alcoholismandthefamily.com / Author of Children of Alcoholism and Raising Healthy Children in an Alcoholic Home
Ailish Manners's insight:

I find this wrong how children under 10 have being trying alcohol. If the kids turn out to be an alcoholic at an older age say 13-16 that would be the parents flout. Because they have let there children have a drink of alcohol at a young age. They can also have some damage to their brain that will effect them when they are older. 
If parents are going to be doing this and get caught they should spend a bit of time in Jail. But these days they just continue doing to.

This study underscores the need for parents and teachers to begin substance abuse education at much earlier ages than once thought. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh queried 452 children in one Pennsylvania county each year from ages 8 and a half through 18 about how old they were when they first sipped or tasted alcohol, had a drink, had three or more drinks in a row, or were drunk. This article on the Medical Press website summarizes the results:


"By age 8, 37 percent had sipped alcohol. That number jumped to 66 percent by age 12. By age 18.5, nearly all (96 percent) had sipped or tasted alcohol. Also, 16 percent of 16-year-olds reported binge drinking (three or more drinks)."


The lead investigator on the study found the most alarming result to be that  over half of the children had tried sipping or tasting alcohol by age 11. He noted that earlier research indicated that "childhood sipping predicts early initiation of drinking" and said the study confirms that " we need  to be talking with our children and students at a much earlier age than most would think." He added that since most underage drinkers get their alcohol from family members or those of legal drinking age, there is a great need  to get adults to understand the risks of adolescent drinking.


Note:  Another reason this is alarming is that there is previous research to indicate that adolescents appear to be particularly sensitive to the positive effects of drinking, for example, feeling more at ease in social situations.  There is speculation that  young people may drink more than adults because of these positive social experiences and may be wiring their brains to associate pleasurable emotional experiences with drinking, This may be one reason that early onset of drinking predisposes people to develop substance abuse disorders.
