Teenage Drinking

By Kevin Bushweller — June 21, 2005 1 min read

Parents are unfamiliar with the legal issues surrounding underage drinking, even though most of them believe teenage alcohol consumption is more of a problem for today’s generation than it was when they were growing up, a new survey suggests.

A summary of the results from the Miller Live Responsibly Survey can be found from Market Wire.

The survey—conducted by Kelton Research for the Miller Brewing Co.—interviewed 600 parents who have teenage children. More than 80 percent of them said they don’t know everything they need to know about the legal consequences of underage drinking.

The survey also found that 62 percent of parents believe underage drinking is a bigger problem now than it was when they were teenagers.
