  • I have never been a real drinker. So I am not the best person to answer this. I personally haven't had a drink since my 21st birthday, 4 years ago. However, I know plenty of responsible parents that have a drink every so often. A night or two a week, a glass of wine probably won't hurt anything. My husband will occasionally have a beer while I am work, after the kids go to bed. He does it maybe 2 times a month, after the kids go to bed. Now my kids see my FIL drink a beer or two at every barbeque or holiday gathering. I have no problem with that, I feel it shows that you can drink responsibly.

Didnt like the feeling or the fact I wasnt available for my kids in the middle of the night if something happened. I feel better in the am for it and Im proud of myself for doing it. Plus as a bonus, Im saving a ton of

  • I like to have a glass of wine with dinner...I usually drink adult beverages in front of the kids.....moderation is the key, not hiding it from them as if I'm doing something wrong.....
