KLEAN Treatment Center Comments on How Parents Can Deter Alcohol Use in High Schoolers
Date:6/24/2013

West Hollywood, California (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

KLEAN Treatment Center has three locations where individuals can seek personalized help in regaining their sobriety after struggles with drug or alcohol abuse. Now, the professionals from the facility are issuing comment on a new article that offers pointers for parents looking to prevent alcohol use and abuse in their high schoolers. Graduation season is a popular time for celebrations, but these joyous occasions can become problematic when teenagers succumb to the pressure to drink. Parents must remain vigilant in order to deter their kids from experimenting with alcohol.

The National Institutes of Health have released a study that shows that 70 percent of teenagers have tried alcohol by the age of 18. This fact is alarming on its own, but becomes even more problematic when an individual considers the fact that many of these young people are new drivers who may not fully understand the consequences of getting behind the wheel after drinking.

Jackie Griffin, who is the executive director of the LiveFree! Coalition, encourages parents to take a proactive approach to their children’s interactions with alcohol. Parents should store their alcohol in a safe place that is not easily accessible. They should also remain vigilant when it comes to their son or daughter’s habits. Remaining aware of what a child’s social life looks like can help a parent to figure out whether their son or daughter is experimenting with drinking.

An honest conversation is also useful for those hoping to deter their kids from using and abusing alcohol. Parents who talk to their children about the dangers of underage drinking can help to discourage their kids from trying alcohol at a young age. Moms and dads should also promote honesty when alcohol is involved. When young people know that they can discuss their exposure to alcohol with their parents, the thrill of sneaking a drink is gone, and many students will choose to leave beer or liquor alone should they become present at parties.

Parents should also keep in mind that their children learn by example, no matter how old or seemingly mature they may seem. Should a parent hope to encourage their child to avoid drinking, then they should put a limit on their own alcohol consumption at parties.

The team at KLEAN Treatment Center explains, “Numerous studies over the years have showed that those who start drinking at an early age are much more likely to fall victim to alcohol abuse. For this reason, it is important that parents discourage their children from experimenting with alcohol, no matter how tempting it may seem. Avoidance of alcohol in formative years can help to lessen the temptation to drink excessively or pick up detrimental habits.” The professionals at KLEAN Treatment Center encourage parents to throw an alcohol-free, teen-friendly graduation party so that young people can see that they can have fun without relying on drinking for entertainment.
