Doctors warn on child drinking

The Sunday Times runs a piece about American research which suggests that:

PARENTS who offer alcohol to their teenage children in the hope of teaching them to drink responsibly may be increasing their risk of becoming heavy drinkers.

See also the Daily Mail, and Telegraph.

The research was apparently carried out by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and (according to the BBC) will be published in December.
