Isabel Bodey's curator insight, May 13, 2015 3:58 AM

I would encourage this to all parents to sit down with their children when they are the correct age and have a serious talk with their children about how extremely dangerous under- age drinking is. Some topics to be brought up should be: that they will regret it when they are older, they could effect their bodies very harshly and that if they are only doing it to fit it then there are many other more positive ways to do so and you will turn out on top if you say no!
