An article from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution highlights a recent study linking underage drinking to a greater propensity towards future alcohol abuse, especially among those already pre-disposed towards alcohol dependency.
With our Ask. Listen. Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don’t Mix program, we seek to start a conversation among middle-school students, with each other and with their parents, about the dangers of underage drinking. We also emphasize that this is a dialogue that must extend through high school and on to college.
The Century Council has long believed that parents wield the power to influence their kids to say “yes” to a healthy lifestyle and “no” to underage drinking.
