According to a recent study from psychologists Jean Twenge and Heejung Park, teenagers of today aren’t that interested in alcohol.

The psychologists found that teenagers prefer to stay at home and spend their time on social-media apps instead, avoiding alcohol and drugs.

The study, which was published in the journal Child Developments, revealed that nowadays teens are less likely to drive, work for pay, go on dates, have sex or go out without their parents.

The study surveyed the behaviour of 8.3 million teens between 1976 and 2016. See more at
