This clip could be used to discuss and reflect on the risks and effects of drinking alcohol. Ask: "Why do some people act silly and irresponsibly when under the influence of alcohol? What happens to our bodies? How do you think the children in the clip felt when they got home? What offences are mentioned in the clip? What could we do to raise awareness on this issue?" Pupils could write down in their books what advice they would give to the boys in the clip.
