Alcohol Research: Strong Family Unit Serves as Protector

Alcohol Research Study

A new Swedish alcohol research study reinforces that belief that a strong family unit with engaged and present parents are the best insurance policy for preventing teenagers from drinking large amounts of alcohol. Those teenagers who smoke, hang out with their friends, and have access to their parents’ alcohol, are at a greater risk of becoming binge drinkers. “Initiatives that focus on strengthening the parent-child relationship and limiting parental provision of alcohol can prove effective in limiting risky consumption among adolescents,” said Anna-Karin Danielsson, from the Swedish Department of Public Health Sciences. “Parents also play an important role when it comes to teaching young people how to resist peer pressure to drink.” Parents who are involved in their children’s daily lives, together with a strong faith background, often have children who make better and more informed choices about drinking.
