  • I don't think one drink is bad. If you're down right drunk that's a different story.

  • I don't think it's bad to have A drink. To get wasted...yes! That would be bad and irresponsible. IMO

  • A drink? No it's not bad but it's another thing to get plastered while they are awake or even asleep. As long as you can control yourself I see no problem. I occasionally have a cold one when the kids go to bed.

  • what do you think? only you have to deal with the conquences or actions of drinking with the kids awake. It doesnt matter to us if you drink around ur kids. Who knows I could be drunk right now!
    at the end of the day can u look ur self in the mirror and be ok with drinking aroung ur kids?
    Its all up to u

  • If there is another adult home who isn't drinking I get wasted. Never in front of kids though.

  • OP here, I don't think it's bad. I think it's weird when people say they only have a drink after the kids go to bed. LOL!

  • A drink or so, no, its not bad. Getting drunk in front of your kids, that's bad. I drink a margarita now and then at home and my kids don't know a thing.
