8policy on underage drinking
- Sep 2, 2008When I speak to parents about this issue,
I encourage parents to set down realistic
policies. If you ground your 14 old daughter
for six months for smoking, remember that
you are also "grounding yourself". Research
shows the teens that are most vulnerable usually
come from two extremes - the parents who set
rules so strict that there is an impact on bonding
and the parents who set no guidelines at all
and just accept that their teens will drink.
I am interested to see what are some
realistic policies that some parents have
put into place.
