NPR has two current pieces about drinking. One deals with the question of how much is too much. Personally, I don’t think it goes quite far enough with its suggested precautions. Other than that and a really dumb remark from some “expert” that you should “exercise good judgement” about when to stop drinking (that is the portion of the brain that’s affected first by alcohol), it’s a good read, with some food for thought.
The other segment deals with permissive parenting versus strict parenting, and how they affect the likelihood of teens drinking. The results will surprise you.
