Teens Must Be Educated About The Consequences Of Drinking

608 words - 3 pages

As binge drinking continues to increase every year so does the fatalities caused by car accidents, teen pregnancy, rape, and homicides. Obviously there is no way to completely stop binge drinking but if we could decrease the occurrence then we could make a difference. I strongly believe that in order to do this we need to make the consequences more severe. Teens get off too easily and that’s why they continue to drink irresponsibly. I also think that if teens knew about it before hand they would think twice about binge drinking.

Billboards are a good way of sending out this message. If they appear on major highways with a catchy phrase or maybe even a picture of what could happen it would get people’s attention. I know that if I was to see what a fatal accident caused by alcohol can ...view middle of the document...

I believe that kids need to be informed about binge and underage drinking before hand. I would suggest that they be required to take a class about it in junior high and in high school. This way they are more educated on the outcomes of it and not that it’s just an adrenaline rush. The way I could spread the idea would be through flyers. Flyers are a real easy to make and with shocking information and real life stories and pictures I think the word will definitely get out. I could hand them out almost anywhere, such as the mall, a sporting event, at school, etc. the more that agree with my opinion the better the chances are of passing the law. And even if it doesn’t get passed it would at least get people thinking about it and maybe parents can inform their children about it before they get in a situation that is encouraging them to drink.

There was recently a commercial on TV about a girl that got hit by a drunk driver. The commercial shows what she looked like before and what she looks like now. She looks so bad now and there is nothing she can do about it. When my dad saw this commercial he got scared and didn’t let me go out for a week. A commercial is an excellent way of getting the message across. If you have a real life story and you take it to a producer they will get the money to make the commercial. I am sure that my dad wasn’t the only one affected by this commercial; it probably had a big impact on a lot of viewers.

Still, there will always be teens out there that will never stop drinking but maybe they will slow down and be more responsible if they are more educated on the subject. Parents and teachers should inform teens about the consequences and outcomes of drinking so that future generations are aware and can take better precautions. The sooner we start educating teens about this matter the better off our society will be.
