A pilot scheme in Kerry could soon see parents bringing their teens to the pub.
 
The aim of the scheme is to teach young people about sensible drinking in an attempt to tackle a culture of binge and pre-drinking.
 
The initiative has received the backing of the Vintners Federation of Ireland and also a number of teachers.
 
Participating pubs will hold promotional events aimed at parents and their 18- and 19-year-old teens.
 
A representative from the ASTI has said he supports the plan, but feels it doesn’t address the issue of drinking among younger teens, who he has seen falling asleep in class from hangovers.
 
What do you think? Is this a good idea? Will it help educate young people on the issue of drinking?
