Parents Encourage Underage Drinking
Date:12/12/2009

Half of Australian adults and 63 per cent of Australians on a higher income believe teenagers aged from 15 to 17 year old should be allowed to consume alcohol under parental supervision at home, according to the latest MBF Healthwatch survey.

(PRWEB) December 12, 2009 -- Half of Australian adults and 63 per cent of Australians on a higher income believe teenagers aged from 15 to 17 year old should be allowed to consume alcohol under parental supervision at home, according to the latest MBF Healthwatch survey.

Bupa Australia* Chief Medical Officer, Dr Christine Bennett, said these statistics were both surprising and of concern given alcohol consumption can have long-term health implications for young adult brains that are not yet fully developed.

“Our survey suggests many Australians believe it’s acceptable to buy alcohol for teenagers and allow them to drink under parental supervision at home,” Dr Bennett said.

“Some parents may think this is harmless to a young person’s health; some may see this approach as a way to teach their teenage children about socially responsible drinking. But we want parents to understand that early exposure to alcohol may actually be doing their teenager’s health, damage.

“Evidence suggests that the younger teenagers are when alcohol is introduced, the greater the risk of long-term alcohol related health problems.

“Too much alcohol impairs young people’s judgement which can lead to violence, injury and build a pattern of use that leads to lifetime dependence.
