  • Not everyone drinks alcohol to get smashed. Some people can drink two beers and be ok with just that, and there shouldn't be any reason why they can't.

  • If it's only family coming over, I have drinks for the adults available. If I were to have other people's kids over, then no. Wouldn't want to have the extra responsibility, especially if it's someone I don't really know. There are many alchoholics out there - some don't even know it.

  • We do all the time but you need to watch those people that let it get outta control and if thats is to much to do then don't have it, We have a great group we hang with and a glass of wime or few beers and it is all good.!!!

  • My husband and I don't drink....and we would prefer to not have alcohol at our kids' bday parties, but if there are a lot of adults I think that it should be an option for them to have...unless a majority of guests don't drink. My family is full of drinkers and in order for them to feel welcomed and relaxed..I think it would be part of my hostess' duties. I don't really agree with it, but if you have a small amount that when it is gone it is gone then I don't think that it is that big of a deal. As long as there aren't kegs with free flowing alcohol.

  • Why not? I like to smoke a little weed every now and then too at the parties.

  • It's not like it would be a drunken brawl. Drinking responsibly is fine. If we have beer our friends and family are welcome to help themselves
