Want to fight underage drinking? It starts with dad | Deseret News: Once again, it seems that you can’t put a price tag on the important role of a father.
According to a recent study done in Taiwan, fathers have a stronger influence on a child’s drinking habits than mothers do.
Hsing-Yi Chang, who coauthored the study, used data from previous research that asked nearly 4,000 Taiwanese students about their drinking habits. The students were then asked to describe how often their parents drank and how they perceived a parent's attitude towards alcohol.
