Is drinking good for teenagers?

Andy and John present different views on the question of teenage drinking. John highlights potential harms of an individual’s alcohol use to their peers and family. To minimise these harms, the best advice for parents and educators may be to discourage any early drinking. Andy argues that if teenagers drink moderately as part of a social group, they are more socially integrated and learn how to drink responsibly.
