Today, a lot of young people are getting more involved in drinking alcohol beverages while having fun. Little they don't know, they are doing a serious damage to their brains that will affect their own future.
Teen's brains are not fully developed until they are 25 years old. During this time of development, the brain are developing functional changes that will be used until future. At this time, if a teen get exposed into drinking alcohol beverages, this will have a critical effect on the young brain because development interruption happened.
Fact about it is when the alcohol reaches the hippocampus (part of the brain that's responsible in memory holding) a person may have a hard time in remembering something either important or not. Hippocampus is also a part of our brain wherein, the release and process of neurotransmitters happens.
Scientists just learned that young teens that always drink or repeatedly drinking alcohol beverages, can permanently damage the hippocampus, making learning new things or new knowledge will be much difficult as they get older.
Occasional drinking can also affect the frontal areas of the young brain, wherein, this part controls impulses and thinking through consequences. This can lead to poor decision making, lack of self control and it can trigger violence both now and into adulthood. Remember that the human brain is the support of our every action.
The consequences are mere tragic and too often dangerous, the developing brain is also more susceptible to addiction. A child that begins drinking at a young age is four times (4x) more likely to develop an addiction to alcohol than a child that waits until they turn into their legal age of 21.
Imagine, a children in a minor age are drinking, it could damage not only their mental stability but also their physical appearance. If you are charming, you can attract people easily, but as what I've said, alcohol can also ruin your physical appearance. If you get into a fight with a lot of people just because you are drunk, don't expect that your charming face will remain good.
As well as, the cost of underage drinking can extend far beyond in legal consequences because of the law regarding underage drinking. Alcohol does have a major effect on your mental health and can interfere with important milestones, including his or her memory term, have a healthy and long-lasting relationship, get accepted to college, or find a good and suitable job.
Parents, if you let your children to have their freedom without thinking what might happen sooner, the worst consequence of this will be their future might turn into ashes that will be blown away by wind if they get their selves into an alcohol addiction.
Help your child stay safe and sober. Don't support them into something that will ruin their future. Don't let them to be a worm in your family who was born just to dig their own grave.
