being an alcoholic? i ask because i recently had a baby, and i don't leave him with his grandparents because they drink WAY too much, but i've always wondered how my DH was even taken care of. they drink all day long, and DH said they have ALWAYS done that. police have been to their house, while they were drunk, with the kids there (for stuff like the kids being out past curfew) and never got into ANY kind of trouble. i don't understand it, i would have thought you could get them taken away for some kind of endangerment. i don't mean drinking, or even tipsy, i mean DRUNK.

Drinking alone would not constitute cause . Now drinking and driving with the kids in the car.. Seen many taken away for that. Parents drunk, house a disaster, kids dirty, not fed or clothed properly .....seen that happen too. Evidence of any physical abuse on the child..yeah. Drinking by itself would not necessarily be enough. Also remember you're talking about a difference of how many years ago?
