Underage Drinking Tabloid
Think underage drinking doesn’t affect a teen’s brain? Think again. It’s a fact. New research shows alcohol affects a teenager’s developing brain differently than an adult’s. Memory, learning and impulse control can be impaired seriously. The risk of addiction goes up dramatically. So talk to your kids about the dangers of alcohol and set clear rules about no alcohol use.
