My 18 year old son came home late last nignt (I'm not sure what time because I was asleep), when I went to check on him this morning he wasn't in his room, so I checked the basement and he was asleep down there. I found an almost empty bottle of gin and a bottle of tonic water on the pool table. I've never seen him drink or ever heard about him drinking before. I know teens his age drink, but what concerns is that he was alone and that he just started driving. Now I'm going to worry every weekend when he takes the care out.Answer Question

WOW this is hard . I am dealing with the same thing. They are to the legal world adults. Yet as we know they are so not. I would be worried and I told my son , Hes not allowed to drive my car any more. He don't have his own cause he wont get a job. I cant be there at all times to stop him , and i wont help him get where hes going either

I would talk to him about the situation. Be up front and honest about your concern that he is drinking and driving. I had my son sign a pledge that he would not drink and drive. Our legal age for drinking is 21, so I would wonder how an 18 year old got a bottle of gin. Good luck.
