The Changing Kinds Of Teenage Alcohol Consumption

Teenagers recognize that it’s becoming more and more difficult to outsmart their parents as far as drinking goes, so they have been forced to get more creative with their methods.  Jello shots are one example, because parents will have no idea what their child is planning when they buy the Jello.  A few other ways that teens have been known to secretly drink involve putting beer or liquor in opaque water bottles so that it isn’t immediately recognizable what kind of liquid is in it.  There is no reason to suspect that they are doing anything wrong.  They also tend to mix their booze with drinks that have their own very distinct odor, like certain juices and sodas, which makes their consumption even less detectable, because it cannot be smelled.  Another prevalent way of drinking is by emptying soda cans and putting wine or beer in it.  Adolescents can openly carry their booze around without any fear of detection.  It is frightening how easy it is becoming for young people to get drunk, so it is through learning these methods, and the many other strange ones, that parents can learn to keep a closer eye on the drinking habits of their son or daughter.
