If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother
shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of the town. They shall say to the elders, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not
obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death…

Blows and wounds cleanse away evil, and beatings purge the inmost being. The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.

Deuteronomy 5:9
“for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.”
Deuteronomy 24:16
“Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin.”

A study of 1,839 adults published in the Archives of Neurology found that
the more alcohol an adult drinks, the smaller his or her brain.Here is just a taster of the findings of recent well controlled studies. In teenagers who binge drink
only infrequently (four to five drinks once a month), certain cells in 18 parts of the brain are found to be thinner, with less protective coating, leading to poor
communication between the cells.In teenagers who misuse alcohol, the parts of the brain important in emotional and impulse control — the prefrontal cortex —
are found to be smaller and remain so even at the age of 21.In 2009 researchers looked at 12 to 14-year-olds before they used any alcohol or drugs. Over time
some of the adolescents started to drink, in some cases four or five drinks in one session, two or three times a month — classic binge-drinking behaviour.
Comparing those who drank with those who didn’t, the researchers found the binge drinkers performed worse on thinking and memory tests involving spatial
functioning, which affects things such as mathematics and engineering abilities.The leading researcher spelt out the practical implications for parents of teenage
pupils. “The magnitude of the difference is 10%. I like to think of it as the difference between an A and a B grade in an exam,” he warned. The study concluded
that the effects may well “extend into adulthood”.
