Rate of underage drinking drops with parental involvement
Having a parent who experienced alcohol at a young age has made 16-year-old Shaedra Pace swear off drinking, at least until she's older. Pace said her dad has told her "all about how it messed with his brain," she said. "It has really made a difference in my life." Whether parents have their own experience or not, getting involved in kids' lives is helping to prevent underage drinking in Utah, according to health and law enforcement authorities. The numbers of kids experimenting with alcohol are going down.
