From the BBC: Parents who let under-15s drink at home should be prosecuted, according to the charity Alcohol Concern. It says the number of younger teenagers who binge drink has rocketed and mums and dads need to take it more seriously. Girls aged between 11 and 13 drank an average of 12 units of alcohol in 2006, the equivalent to four pints of beer. That's up 83% on 2000. The government's insisting it isn't harmful for children to drink small amounts at home with their parents. It's legal to drink at home from the age of five. Well this was mentioned in another thread... and I feel that it deserves it own. What do you think about these suggestions?
