5 Tips for parents

> The average age children have their first unsupervised drink is 13.8 so it’s important to talk to children before they start drinking — it’snever too early.

> Keep the conversation going. Make sure your children know they can talk to you about alcohol at any time.

> Soap opera storylines, news stories or anecdotal stories from school can be a good opportunity to introduce the topic of alcohol.

> Even if your child has already started drinking, it’s never too late to start talking to them about the risks associated with alcohol.

> If your child does get drunk, try not to overreact. Talk to them about it the next morning and listen to what they say
