I have been looking inII booze related stats IV Canada & the United States. A frightening stat was the fact that LXXX% (80%) of kids in school on average will try alcohol &/or some form of other stimulant while in school. As much as possible we need II try & keep kids off of booze. Seeing their parent/guardian drink copiously at home or even say just once a day having a shot or sip of booze can definitely influence kids to drink. We have II nip this problem in the bud & encourage kids to stay away from drinking.
Alcohol can lead to distorted coordination, hearing, visual problems, & motor skills. It can also lead to a change in mood in behaviour & many diseases of the body such as kidney & liver failure. Without proper thinking ability's & control of their bodies, kids will not do as well in school & will not be able to adapt as well to life.
