"Parental approval of underage alcohol use is surprisingly prevalent," said Kristie Foley, Ph.D., a researcher at Wake Forest and the principal investigator of the study. "Parents have good intentions, thinking the teenagers won't drink and drive, that they are safer staying at home, but it sends the wrong message. Adolescents interpret this behavior as an approval to drink alcoholic beverages."

On the other hand, the study also showed that parents who set strict consequences for breaking the house rules regarding drinking can help prevent underage drinking. "If a teen thinks he or she will receive severe punishment, as perceived by the teen, if they are caught drinking, they are less likely to consume alcoholic beverages," Foley said
The study's findings are published in the October 2004 Journal of Adolescent Health.
