Do other parents give their children alcohol?
Many parents do not give alcohol to their children.
Sometimes parents feel pressure - from their children or other parents - to provide alcohol to young people. If you decide to delay your child’s alcohol use, you will not be alone, as many other parents have made the same decision. In fact, 2 out of 3 parents are choosing not to provide alcohol, and it's helping prevent alcohol-related harm.
Talking openly with other parents about the importance of delaying young people’s alcohol use will help to raise awareness and stimulate important discussions. You may be surprised how many other parents feel the same way!
