April is Underage Drinking Prevention month and April 21 is highlighted as a reminder to parents to talk with their kids about alcohol.

  • More likely to be victims of crime, to be in accidents, and to struggle in school;
  • More likely to be sexually active; and
  • Four times more likely to become dependent on alcohol.

Despite the data on the effects of early alcohol use, many parents still believe drinking in the home is a safe alternative.
