Not like to the point of being trashed and vomiting all night. But like will you order a drink with dinner if your husabnd/so is driving home? Or if you're at a 4th of july party where children are present, do the adults partake in social drinking (again, not in excess) What about summer bonfires? Or you've just had a long day and want a glass of wine. I grew up in a home where alcohol was always present, but never consumed in excess. Birthday parties, christmas, thanksgiving, there was always beer present for the guys, wine and champaign for the girls. I remember being very young and knowing our mom was out with friends in the backyard drinking/enjoying a bonfire while us little ones were inside "sleeping" during the summer. I now raise my child the same way. He's never seen me wasted, vomiting, trashed or anything in excess, but he's grown up going to bonfires where everyone is drinking. He and his friends run around playing, the rest of us enjoy drinks and conversation. He's played euchre with SO and I and friends while everyone was drinking beer.
In a recent post I read I was amazed how many people said drinking around your kids was never ok. I prefer to just have him with me at a friends house where I know he's safe and playing with friends, then to leave him with a random sitter. Obviously I would never take my child to a bar, but I see no problems with bonfires or family friendly cookouts/holiday parties. Is my group of friends the only ones who view this behavior acceptable? From the posts I was reading people were making it seem like it was horrible just to drink on occasion, let alone with your children present.
