Watched Embarrassing Teenage Bodies program last week with DS aged 13 in the anticipation of advice on awkward questions.

It wasn't what I expected.

It focused on a group of 17yo boys on the lash. Showed them on a bar crawl downing olympic quantities of alcohol. Then next morning with full scale hangovers they were all breathalised, then sent off for liver tests.
They all looked suitably ill and were all still over the limit.

"I can't wait until I'm old enough to do that" says DS with a longing look on his face.
I proceeded to give a lecture on the evils of drink, not too effective with a glass of red in my handblush

Just showed this to my 15 yr old DD - highly amused!

Unfortunately she recognises when I'm trying to do something "educational" with me and it always fails grin
