Alcohol Education for Younger Children

There is a report from the University of Pittsburgh which suggested that students should be exposed to knowledge of the dangers of alcohol as early as fourth-grade. There are several reasons for this. First, kids watch TV and ads marketing alcohol are more prominent than ever. Then, there is the information from a review of state and national surveys which found that among typical fourth-graders, ten percent had already had more than a sip of alcohol, and seven percent had a drink in the past year. The percent of children who have used alcohol increased with age and doubles between the fourth and sixth grade.

We always appreciate your comments.
