Underage drinking can impair a child's brain development. Research shows that underage drinking can hinder proper brain development, causing harm to areas of the brain that control decision-making, memory, learning ability and impulse control.

In a recent survey, Utah kids reported that parental disapproval is the number one reason they choose not to drink. There are three things parents can do to help their kids stay alcohol-free: bonding, boundaries and monitoring.

Exercise boundaries by setting clear rules about not drinking underage and monitor your kids and know their day-to-day world. Remember to check in with your kids from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., during peak drinking times, when they are often unsupervised.
