Parents and Alcohol; DrinkWise Australia and The Sports Australia Hall of Fame
Description: The role that alcohol plays in the family home and at family functions or community events sends an important message to Australian kids. Ambassadors for DrinkWise Australia and The Sports Australia Hall of Fame discuss the influence their parents and other adult family members had on their attitudes to alcohol. Research shows that parents are their kid's most influential role models, especially when it comes to alcohol. By drinking responsibly and making healthy, informed decisions when it comes to alcohol, parents will send the message to their kids that alcohol has a time and place and that drinking to excess is not acceptable and even dangerous to your health.
