Underage Drinking: What Parents Should Know

July 9, 2013

Mississippi’s 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Survey of students in grades nine through twelve shows that youth alcohol abuse starts long before college and demonstrates clearly why parents should talk about alcohol with their children at an early age (between 9-11):

  • 72.1% of Mississippi youth have tried alcohol.
  • More than 40% admitted drinking one or more alcoholic beverages during the month before the poll.
