  • Yes. I think they couldn't possibly be taking the best care of them. And its also selfish.

  • yes i do. definitely if the children are awake. How is the person to take proper care of the child if they are drunk?? Plus the next morning after being drunk, being cranky and irritable that is not a great enviroment for a child to have to grow up in.

  • Yes it is very wrong they should do this like on the weekend not all of the time that is so sad some people just don't want to give up the partying they don't realize they have kids in this world now that is why alot of our kids grow up all screwed bc of people like that. The kids don't know who to turn to. Not to mention those party animals don't realize this yet but they are damaging their liver as well. Some people just never learn...

  • Yeah, pretty much. Just because it's cool to enjoy alcohol at any *legal* age but if it's so important that they have to do it all the time, obviously their priorities are outta whack.

  • Getting drunk with kids around: yes, irresponsible. Having a couple of drinks just to chill out w.o getting drunk: OK.

  • Yes. My parents went out every weekend as I was growing up. We rarely saw our parents on the weekends. It wasn't a good way to grow up. I would never do that to my son, I rarely drink and rarely go out. He is my first priority. I do have an occasional drink around him and I think that is fine, as long as drinking is done responsibly and isn't an all the time out of control act.

  • getting drunk, yes, irresponsible.
    I drink occasionally at BBQ's and things of that nature with my child around but like 2-3 drinks over 4-6 hours so WAY away from drunk, and it isnt a common thing.
    My parents have parties at their house often especially during the summer, and sometimes they get pretty drunk, but my youngest sibling is 15 and there is always someone that isnt drinking if there were an emergency. (usually it's me lol)
