Kids as young as 9 getting hooked to booze
    #7355842 - 08/31/07 01:24 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

A review study has found that kids have started drinking even when they are as young as 9-years old.

The researchers carrying out the study have now asked teachers and parents to keep a vigil over kids to ensure that they do not take to drinking starting as early as the fourth grade.

The study found that children in fourth, fifth and sixth grades have already started hitting the bottle.

"A review of national and state wide surveys conducted over the last 15 years shows that among typical 4th graders, 10 pct have already had more than a sip of alcohol and 7pct have had a drink in the past year. While the numbers are small in the fourth grade, the surveys show that the percent of children who have used alcohol increases with age, and doubles between grades four and six. The largest jump in rates occurs between grades five and six," according to John E. Donovan, Ph.D., an associate professor of psychiatry and epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Dr. Donovan said that although there are many published national surveys of alcohol use among adolescents, national surveys and those conducted by state governments that have looked at alcohol use among young children are often unpublished. He found that 39 of the 50 states have conducted state wide surveys that included children in the 6th grade or younger. His study summarized the results of the available national surveys as well as the state wide surveys conducted by Arizona, Delaware, New York, Ohio and Texas, which included fourth and fifth graders.

Several of the surveys conducted on a regular basis since 1990 show that the numbers of elementary school children who have ever used alcohol, who have used alcohol in the past year, and who have used alcohol in the past month have all decreased significantly over time.

"But the numbers are still alarming because of the connection between early alcohol consumption and negative outcomes later during both adolescence and young adulthood. It is this linkage that argues most strongly for preventing alcohol use prior to adolescence," Donovan said.

The surveys also show that African-American children are at as much at risk for early drinking as are other children, despite their lower risk for drinking as adolescents.

"Children are drinking, and our concern with underage drinking needs to start in elementary school, not in high school or college. Research shows that prevention programs should begin before the targeted behaviour begins. But alcohol use prevention programs among 5th graders or younger students have shown inconsistent results. Successful programs aimed at these children have involved parents and other family members, not just the children in the school setting," according to Donovan.

"Prior to this review, these data on children's drinking were buried in foundation or state government reports, or stored on hard-to-find internet web sites, so we didn't know the true extent of the problem of children's involvement with alcohol," he said.

Donovan located four national surveys that included questions about children's alcohol and drug use. The four surveys were the Partnership Attitude Tracking Study (PATS), the National Survey of Parents and Youth (NSPY), the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HSBC) survey and the PRIDE Survey. These surveys included limited questions about children's use of alcohol. Surveys of young children conducted by states included versions of the Youth Risk Behaviour Survey (YRBS), the Communities that Care (CTC) questionnaire, and the PRIDE survey

The study by the University of Pittsburgh researcher was funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. It points out the need for an ongoing national survey of children aged 12 and under to monitor children's alcohol use and the need for alcohol prevention efforts in this population.

"Knowing how many children have had experience with alcohol would serve as an indicator of the number potentially at risk for later use of marijuana and other illicit drugs. Childhood use of alcohol also predicts involvement in alcohol problems, alcohol abuse and dependence in both adolescence and adulthood. And early drinking relates to a variety of other problems, including absences from school, delinquent behaviour, drinking and driving, sexual intercourse and pregnancy," Donovan said.

The study, "Really Underage Drinkers: The Epidemiology of Children's Alcohol Use in the United States" is published in the September issue of Prevention Science, a peer-reviewed journal of the Society for Prevention Research (SPR). (ANI)

...And who's fault is it that kids as young as nine are getting into booze?

CLEARLY THE ALCOHOL COMPANIES AND THE LIBERAL JEW RUN MEDIA!!!

It's great that I've seen so many kids in so many horrible situations and most of them pull it together by eighteen, but no one gives a fuck about these kids until they become a statistic. You know what? Kids are like adults, a couple of winners, most of them just average, and then a whole lot of losers. But because of goddamn stupid uptight religious and liberal people who can't handle the way world is want to stick their goddamn beliefs and lifestyle on everyone. You know a lot of kids are born to be fuckups, addicts, and menaces to society. With the way the world works what with mental illness, natural selection, and capitalism that's just the way it is. So why don't they shut the fuck up and keep to themselves instead of putting a big S on their chest and "trying to save the world" with a bible or a pointless tax draining educational program that only serves to hinder children rather than help them.


Wow... I kind of went on a rant there.

The wonderful results of the alcohol industry┬┤s advertisement/encouragement and the artificially internalized identification between alcohol and social fun

way to go, hypocrite society.. pretend to be against drugs while making sure people use exactly the other drugs that help in the mass control.... and when the shit hits the fan, blame the youth... that always works out good
