Reduce Underage Drinking by Examining the Parents Relationship With Alcohol

The website checkyourdrinking.net is a great online tool to evaluate your relationship with alcohol in a realistic and straightforward manner. The website collects self-reported data on drinking habits and provides users with a report comparing their drinking to national averages, information on drinking risks, an estimation of their annual spending on alcohol, a calculation of how much time the user spends intoxicated each year, and safe-drinking guidelines. By evaluating our own behaviors as parents, it may open our eyes to the example we are setting for our children.
