Teenage girls are drinking as much alcohol as teenage boys, but their mothers don't realize it and often fail to discourage it, according to a new national survey by a distillers' group.

The survey found 16 percent of girls ages 13 to 15 said they drink with friends, but only 5 percent of their mothers think their daughters are drinking. Post Wire Services
