According to the latest scientific research, parents who occasionally drink alcoholic beverages with their teenage children at home may prevent them from buying their own drinks. More than 10,000 teenagers participated in the survey held in UK.

Parents who do not want their children to drink alcohol behind their back, are advised to limit the pocket money to less than 10 pounds a week. Researchers have come to the conclusion that teenagers who buy alcohol secretly from their parent are six times as likely to drink alcoholic beverages in public places, three times as likely to grow up into regular drinkers and twice as likely to become binge drinkers. The research also suggests the government should prevent the marketing of alcohol to teenagers.
