A Campaign That Makes Sense

Parents will be the target of a TV ad campaign that highlights how hard drinking in the home could cause teenagers to become alcohol abusers.  Its about time someone realized one of the main sources of the problem with irresponsible binge drinking.

Without a doubt, parents set the example for their children.  If they have a drinking problem, or drink often, their kids will often follow suit.  Now if they teach their kids to drink responsibly then problems are less likely to occur. 

Apparently the alternative was a Grim Reaper-style ad campaign: “The Health Minister, Nicola Roxon, has denied her own Grim Reaper-style ad campaign – which the Prime Minister said would “scare the living daylights” out of binge-drinking teenagers – had fallen behind schedule.”

Good thing it was denied… There is no “scaring” kids out of drinking/drugs and the like, its going to happen, its unavoidable. better thing to do as mentioned above is to educate them about it, and that education should start with the parents setting the “right” example.
