The book describes the potential damage alcohol has on the still developing teen brain.
underage drinking has become a global epidemic of phenomenal proportions. Unfortunately most parents, teens and educators are concerned only with underage drinking and driving which can result in tragic auto accidents. As tragic as these accidents are they are a small fraction of the problem of the underage drinking epidemic. New studies are now showing the devastating short and long term effects alcohol has on the teen brain. Young people are beginning to drink at earlier and earlier ages some as early as 10 years old. Many parents and teens still think of drinking alcohol as harmless fun and a rite of passage to adulthood. And, many parents see no harm in providing alcohol to their teens and friends for parties as long as they leave their car keys at the front door. Wrong! Get the real facts! Find out what alcohol can and does do to a teens brain and why?
