PRLog - Jun. 26, 2013 - At some point in a child’s life, her parents will need to discuss the dangers of teenagers drinking and driving. Legal-yogi.com is here to share its thoughts on the mix of alcohol and young adults, such as:

·         The Conversation

·         Leading by Example

·          Teen Alcohol-Related Deaths not from Traffic Accidents

·         Peer Pressure

Talking to Teens about Drinking and Driving

Teens are prickly, defiant, hard-headed… and still children. That’s why it’s so very important to talk to them about the terrible repercussions of teenager(s) and drunk driving. Generally, being honest with them is most effective. Remind them of their friends who have been involved in traffic accidents or fatalities because of this behavior. Reassure them that they’re deeply loved, and that losing them to this error in judgment would devastate both parents. Allow them to ask questions, no matter how “stupid” they think they are. Don’t lecture; simply talk, and find out how much teens can - and do- listen.

Show Teens How to Handle Alcohol

Teens watch and learn from their parents all the time. They see how adults deal with alcohol. Teenagers and drinking and driving should be addressed not just verbally, but also through one’s actions. If hosting a party for grown-ups, be sure to take keys at the front door. Offer beds to those too inebriated to drive, and show that having just one beer is okay. Remember, parents are under constant surveillance and behave accordingly.

Deaths from Teen Drinking not Involving a Traffic Incident

While the statistics for teenager (s) and drunk driving are somewhat distressing still, teens that drink alcohol also die from other than driving accidents. For example, while 32% of teen deaths involving alcohol are auto accidents, 30% are homicides, 14% were suicides, and 9% were from alcohol poisoning. Scary, isn’t it? There are a miscellaneous 15% of teen deaths to “other” causes, too. Remember, parents, talk, talk, talk, to teens about the misuse of alcohol so that they can eventually talk to theirs about it.

Compelling Peers

Who doesn’t know that peer pressure is the most influential force in a teen’s life? Parents are a close second, but other teens rule. Teenagers and drinking and driving can often result from silent pressure from a teen’s “friends.”  No young adult wants to be considered “uncool,” so if his friends are drinking and then driving, he’ll feel like he has to do it, too. He may ponder it first, but he’ll likely give in and follow the “cool” crowd, sometimes with awful outcomes.
