Slightly more than half of teens had engaged in underage drinking 4 percent reported taking the alcohol from their own home 40 percent got alcohol from an adult for free Among ages 12 to 20, one in five had taken part in binge drinking 10.8 million underage drinkers are turning to their parents or other adults for free alcohol. I cannot believe there are parents that are doing this. What ever happened to setting a good example? Do you know of a parent who has done this?

Well, unfortunately, this is something that will continue to happen and unless the Parents or adults themselves decide this is not worth doing this, nothing really can ever be done about it. If you can believe it, a lot of these kids often end up in AA etc. and have quite mixed up lives because of this. Most of the time they have nothing really to guide them if it was their parents doing this, and so they tend to continue to rely on everyone else doing everything for themselves. What can be done to Stop this? Who really knows, unless the parents themselves realize just what they are doing to their kids and others.
