Zero Alcohol for Youth Campaign When parents “make deals” with youth, or allow their children to drink as long as they promise not to drink and drive, youth are more likely to drink in other places not typically supervised by adults (like parties), to drive after drinking, or ride with a driver that has been drinking. Youth get the message from adults that underage drinking isn’t so bad.
