Survey: Teens are feeling less pressure to drink, use drugs

Parents may find some relief in a recent survey by Axios that indicates that teens are less likely to consume alcohol, use drugs or engage in sex than their parents were at that age. Researchers attribute the drop in those behaviors to several key factors. These include the fact that people are having fewer children and watching them more carefully than even a couple of decades ago.

What happens during a blackout?

Americans don't usually hear discussions about what it means to pass out versus black out from alcohol during Supreme Court confirmation hearings. However, that subject was addressed during the recent Senate confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh as senators questioned him about his youthful drinking.

Do college students have privacy rights in their dorm rooms?

If you've got a son or daughter going off to college this fall, you're likely going to caution them, if you haven't already, about avoiding alcohol and drugs and those who use them. Even though underage drinking and drug use can be found on just about every college campus, they're still illegal.

College drinking and sexual assault

Most parents whose teens will be college freshmen in the fall are understandably concerned about the availability of alcohol on and around campus. Even though their kids are too young to legally drink, parents know from their own college years that it's not hard to find parties with copious amounts of alcohol — and no ID required.

Is your child an alcoholic?

As a parent of a teen, finding out that he or she has been getting drunk at parties, while out with friends or alone can be troubling and frightening. If there is a history of alcoholism in your family, you may fear that your child has inherited the disease and feel that getting him or her into Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or a recovery program is the only way to deal with it.
