CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. David Boyd is challenging you to have an uncomfortable talk with your teen about alcohol.
The physical changes of puberty might make your teen feel self-conscious and more likely to take risks - such as experiment with alcohol to fit in or please others.
Consequences of underage drinking are many, including death, unwanted sexual activity and problems in school.
Find out what your teen knows. Have a serious and frank conversation with them that includes your use of alcohol and why it is different for them.
