4. Do sobriety checks
Although teenage drinking is common, it can also be dangerous. Your child could get hurt while under the influence or develop a problem with alcohol that will stay with her for a lifetime. Now is the time to nip this in the bud. When your teen’s curfew is approaching, sit in the living room and watch television or read a book. Talk to her when she gets home so you can look for signs of intoxication.

5. Let your teen know you’re on their side


Whenever you’re trying to correct your child’s behavior, there will be some tension. That’s ok. Just be sure to let your teen know that you’re available to talk about anything without judgment. They need to know they can come to you if they’ve messed up or need help.

Teenage drinking can be a serious problem, but try not to panic if you’ve caught your child with alcohol. Follow the steps outlined here and get even more involved in your child’s life. He or she may not appreciate it now, but they will thank you for it later.
