Your children and alcohol
If your child is visiting Newquay, unaccompanied, to celebrate
the end of their exams its important for you to talk to them about
alcohol. Not all young people drink - but it's best they hear about
alcohol from you to make sure they have accurate information to
help them make responsible decisions about drinking when they're
faced with them.
Drinkaware's Your kids
and alcohol leaflet has facts and advice to help parents take
the right approach on alcohol with their children.
Drinkaware's 'Your Kids and Alcohol' campaign is
encouraging parents to talk to their children about alcohol before
they start drinking, ideally in the pre-teen years. The average age
children first have a drink is currently 13.8 years. Drinkaware advice
parents to delay the age of a child's first drink to make them
less likely to drink more and more frequently as they grow
