Adults And Parents Give Teens Alcohol
A new government report estimates there are nearly 11 million underage drinkers in the United States, and many of them are getting free alcohol from adults.
The report actually says that the underage teen drinking is made easier by the parents. "A government survey from 2002 to 2006 found that more than half of American teenagers have engaged in underage drinking. Forty percent of those surveyed said they got the alcohol from an adult for free over the past month. Of those, six percent said they obtained the alcohol from a family member, such as a parent. Four percent said they took the alcohol directly from their own homes."
