Imagine if more parents helped to set common boundaries around alcohol

“Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to act with your teenager. Especially when one is exposed to “nagging” and pressure as a parent.

And is it really wrong to give his eighteen-year-old son a bottle of beer when he becomes a student? As a parent, it is important that you take responsibility, are clear with your expectations and stand up for what you think is important. And say no sometimes.”
