Young teens who don’t like school are more likely to drink

The more young people drink, the more they have sex, study shows


 

In a study of 3,641 students aged 11 to 14, British researchers found that those drinking once a week were 10 times more likely to have sex, and also found links between general unhappiness and alcohol use, the BBC reports. Children who don’t like school are twice as likely to drink, and 2.5 times more likely to engage in sexual activity (including kissing, touching and sex), they said. What’s more, those with an unhappy home life, and unable to talk to their parents, were also more likely to drink.

  3. High-risk adolescent behaviours beget high-risk adolescent behaviours? Wow…
