Can movies influence your kids to drink?

How closely do you monitor what your kids watch on TV and at the movies?

A new study might push you to take an even closer interest.

A study out of Europe found that kids who watch movies in which the characters drink lots of alcohol are more likely to binge drink themselves.

The study's authors suggest we could cut down on the number of teen drinkers by changing the images they see on the big screen.

What do you think?

Do the movies glorify drinking and make it more likely for kids to drink?

Or is something else at play?
