 Brit Parents Not Concerned About Their Kids Boozing: Survey
Parents in the UK have been warned against the "dangerous consequences" that could rise from under-age alcohol consumption.

According to a survey headed by the Mumsnet website, many parents did not think drinking alcohol was a major concern to their children's safety.

Children's Secretary Ed Balls said that mums and dads must consider "the link between alcohol and the impact it can have on a young person's safety".

"Research tells us that young people who regularly drink alcohol are more likely to fall behind in school, be involved in road traffic accidents or have unsafe sex," the BBC quoted him as saying.

"If parents discuss the link between alcohol and these other issues, they can make sure it's their child making the decisions, not the alcohol," he added.
