Battling Underage Drinking

The editorial notes the need for effective educational programs in the fight against illegal underage drinking. Our organization supports that approach wholeheartedly.

We, too, are concerned about illegal underage drinking, because this problem, like any form of alcohol abuse, negatively affects our business, our families, our society. This is why we offer educational programs that involve parents, teachers, and other adults in the prevention process. For instance, our "Family Talk About Drinking" program encourages parents to be good role models; to clearly state their rules and positions on drinking; to build self-esteem and strong decisionmaking skills in their chil dren. This program is available free to the public. Joseph P. Castellano, St. Louis, Vice President, Consumer Awareness & Education, Anheuser-Busch Companies
