Do you allow your teens to drink alcohol at home? Hub and I and our 16 year old were on the patio last night all having a drink and our neighbor came over and made a couple rude remarks about my daughter having a drink. We don't have a problem with it as long as it's only at home and in moderation.Answer Question

In some states, as a parent you can legally allow your child to have alcohol (beer, wine, champagne) as long as it is at your residence and you bought it for them. We are in one of those states and we will make that decision when our son is a bit older. If he has good grades, good behavior, etc. then we may consider letting him drink a beer on a special occasion.

Maybe if we were big beer drinkers we would be ok with it occasionally but e aren't and I'm not sharing my wine ;-) sooo..
I really think that people make such a big deal out of alcohol and make it this forbidden thing and it becomes a big temptation and so kids will find a way to go out and drink with their friends, but they wont be doing it in a safe environment and wont have any self control so I am ok with having an occasional drink to keep it from being this forbidden thing that will make it a huge lure. This is not to say I'm going to let my kids get schmamered or anything.
here is an interesting read, even if it is from ehow
