Helping Teenagers have a Healthier Relationship with Alcohol
Following last week’s story on a state survey from WA suggesting an increase with paramedics treating alcohol intoxication amongst teenagers, especially for young women. This week, a new study advised a 3 step plan that parents can apply, to develop a healthier relationship with alcohol for teenagers. It, surprisingly, suggests parents take a harder line when it comes to alcohol use.
Although a couple of national surveys confirm that the alcohol consumption for 12-17 year olds are decreasing, alcohol affects four out of the top five causes of death amongst this age group.
