Underage Drinking Curbed By Strict Parental Rules

Underage Drinking

Underage drinking is a huge problem in this country, but now a new research study learned that stricter parental rules about drinking alcohol are highly protective, especially for males.

“With repeated alcohol use, cues that are previously associated with alcohol use – such as the sight of a beer bottle – become increasingly important,” said lead study author Sara Pieters. “This might be due to alcohol-induced changes in the brain’s reward system and the formation of memory associations.”

The presence of parental involvement does play a role in preventing underage drinking and binge drinking.
