Article Body:
It's the standard at every weekend party: a case of beer, a keg, many
hard liquor bottles and mixed drinks. Alcohol is everywhere these days,
and teens (as well as adults) can't keep their hands off it. Teens are
getting drunk just about every weekend during the school year, and even
more during the summer.

But why do teens insist on drinking? Is it peer pressure? Is it the
thrill of doing something illegal? Do they think it will make them cooler
in the eyes of others? Most likely, it's one (or more) of these reasons.
Teens are easily pressured into things. Almost all of them want to be
accepted, and are willing to do just about anything to gain acceptance.
Even the smartest student in school could very well be giving in to peer
pressure, drinking, doing drugs, and having promiscuous sex.

Most Parents wouldn't like to think of their child being the one to give
in. "My child is smarter than that," they say. While it is quite possible
your child is very intelligent, it takes a very strong willed teen to
just say "no." The fact is that most teens will give in to peer pressure
at one time or another, whether it be with alcohol or something else.

Parents need to be on the watch when it comes to their teens. Make sure
you know where they're going and verify that parents are going to be
there. This will likely assure that drinking will not take place, but it
is still a possibility. Make sure your teen knows the consequences and
dangers of alcohol over-consumption, such as liver damage and alcohol
poisoning. Teens usually have a different attitude about it if their
parents explain to them the effects of alcohol. Parents work a lot better
than health class in school, and can be more personal.
