this is about the availability of alcohol to children aged 12 and up. It is quite efficient because it shows that parents and adult d have an influence on their children when it comes to drinking.

Parents fail to collect children found drunk

Parents fail to collect children found drunk | Maddie Negus' Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it

This is a report following parents failing to collect their 15 year old children from the city after they had been affected by drugs and alchol. The police were outraged at the parents not picking up their children who were later forced home by either ferrys or taxis. This led to the police being very frustrated and the Detective Inspector later qouting that " The police are not a taxi service"

this article is about children, aged 15, drinking alcohol and consuming drugs. their parents did not come to pick up the children leaving the police in fury. i think this is also a role model situation, their parents are obviously not concerned about them drinking and taken drugs under aged but they also aren't bothered to come pick them up when necessary it just makes you wonder what goes on at home and what led these children to underaged drinking and drug consumption.

This shows terrible responsibilities from the parents of these kids. The kids are probably this bad because how they have been brought up. But the fact that these under-age kids were under the influence of alcohol and drugs is not a good sign. This type of behaviour needs to be reduced and changed,

this shows that these childrens parents arent trustworthy and arent very responsible but also these children that are under age and being drunk should be punished for under age drinking.

this article is again about teenagers and children. so again it would be most likely the influence of the adults surrounding them or peer pressure. its effectiveness is good if you want to know what has been happening lately and what the 'rebels of today' are getting up to but its effectiveness of stopping the teens and children from drinking would be very low.

this article is about several contraceptive methods and what would suit your current lifestyle. this isn't overly effective but it is helpful if you are having trouble with methods of contraception.

this book has pros and cons about drinking and the effects and results of it. this book would be effective if you were tossing up drinking underaged or legal or just even having a drink at a party. it would also open your mind up to more possibilities about what could happen if your were drunk.
