Allowing Children To Drink At Home Curbs Binge Drinking

In a unique way to curb binge drinking, researchers say parents should allow children try out alcohol at home. The study says that allowing youngsters // to drink at parties and at home may be the best way to teach them to drink responsibly.

Professor Mark Bellis, the author of the report said that children who are allowed to watch their parents consume alcohol in moderation and allowed to drink with them were sensible in their approach to alcohol and were less likely to binge drink.

"The ability to drink alcohol sensibly is not a gift people are born with but one that must be learnt. By the age of 15, the large majority of people in Britain are drinking at some frequency. What we are not saying is that parents should introduce their children to alcohol by the age of 15," Bellis said. "But because most children are drinking at that age, if there are positive role models for sensible alcohol consumption, they will be less likely to drink dangerously."

The Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University, which conducted the study found that nine of the 10 youngsters polled drank more than 5 drinks when they boozed. The report recommended that shops selling drinks must ask for identification if the buyer is under 21.

"The cost of alcohol is disproportionately low and often the cheapest option is to stop drinking. Often there are not many other choices in many areas. Authorities need to provide attractive, appealing alternatives to bingeing on cheap booze," Bellis said.
