What to do if your teen comes home drunk

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

Look out for the signs. You’ll be able to smell it on their breath or cloth­ing. Ex­plain your con­cerns about drink­ing and the range of risks in­volved. Set clear bound­aries. Try to find what’s led to this in­ci­dent – it may not be ‘just a stage’. Make sure your teen knows you will al­ways be there for them, what­ever hap­pens. Wait un­til morn­ing to dis­cuss the sit­u­a­tion. Seek help from your GP or health pro­fes­sional if you’re wor­ried that it’s be­com­ing regular be­hav­iour.
