In this article it gives statics and talks about teenage alcohol use. Although this article is not recent it shows how much money was spent and how much each age group drank. This articles makes you realise if that many teenagers were drinking back then, what are the rates for 2013?

dylan lees's curator insight, May 20, 2013 6:10 AM

This shows that the age of underage drinking is getting lower and lower by the year kids trying to be to inpress there friends or by peer pressure when there are 12.

"ALMOST half of teenage girls admit to binge drinking regularly, a survey has revealed."

 

This artical is telling you that almost half of teenage girls are admititng to binge drinking regulary. More younger girls are drinking at a young age even at 11 years of age, this would have somthing to do with there oerents and how they are brought up in moss cases. It's extremly wrong for young teenages to be binge drinking it impacks on the rest of there lifes.

 

Alex Lavalle's curator insight, May 21, 2013 3:00 AM

A survey has revealed that almost half of teenage girls admit to binge drinking regularly.

The editor of "Girlfriend Magazine" Erica Bartle, said that images of celebrites that are drunk outside clubs is sending teenagers the wrong message.

Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia undertook a survey and found statics showing high percentages of teenage drinking.

This article is very useful in that statics were shown and an editor of a magazine company had her person opinion.  

Isaac Cheng's curator insight, June 22, 2015 8:18 PM

I was shocked when I read this article. Needless to say, binge drinking is not a cool thing to do. However, there are still many teenagers binge drinking in Australia. Those celebrities have the responsibility to show a positive image to teenagers. This article is related to our topic as it is about teenage binge drinking. I like this article because it showed a lot of data.

On this site it gives you ten reasons why not to drink when your a teen. It also gives you explanations for every point. I believe this is the best source i have posted and is the most relevant for us young girls. It helps you to see other options of having fun WITHOUT alcohol and how to be prepared to say no.

This article shows that there has been a decline of teenage pregnancies. It is largely the result of a raise in the use of birth control. I think this article is relevant for young teenagers who has or will get sexually active.
