As a parent, you undoubtedly worry a great deal about your child. Though you may have initially thought this worry would lessen over time, you may have only found yourself finding new scenarios to have concerns over. Even as your child reaches the later teenage or even college years, you may still feel apprehensive about the potential for finding him or her in a dangerous situation.
In particular, you may worry that your son or daughter could end up dabbling in underage drinking or drug use. Unfortunately, these issues are a reality. Often, individuals — of any age — may feel pressured by their friends or other parties to drink alcohol even though they may not necessarily want to. However, it can be difficult to combat peer pressure, and it can sometimes cause people to act in a manner they might not have normally.
