Are Teens Listening to What Their Parents Say About Underage Drinking?

Even though it doesn’t always seem like it, teenagers actually may be paying attention to what their parents have to say. A new survey launched by the┬áMothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) found that parents who take a no-tolerance stance towards underage drinking have teenagers who are much less likely to drink. (5 times less likely, in fact.)

MADD used SurveyMonkey to ask more than 650 high school students, aged 14 to 18, about their drinking habits and what their parents have told them about underage drinking. Here’s what they found:

  • 70% of teens aged 14 to 18 say they’ve never consumed alcohol. (Tweet this.)
  • 59% of teens (of whom only 8% are active drinkers)┬ásay their parents find it “completely unacceptable” for someone their age to drink. (Tweet this.)
  • Of the 41% of teens who say their parents are a little more lax when it comes to underage drinking, 42% are active drinkers. (Tweet this.)
