Alcohol is the leading cause of death and disability among 15-24 year olds globally. Parents are the most common source of alcohol for underage drinkers, leading to risky drinking, poor mental health and alcohol dependence in adulthood. We know little about parents’ views on the ages of drinking onset that are acceptable. This study will examine parenting styles and parents’ views about their adolescents drinking, to develop new messaging to reduce parental supply.
