How would you handle this?

A friend,( yes there have been issues with her,). How would you handle a friend giving her kids alcohol they are under 13. I feel I need to say something just not sure how to word it. I don't want to call CPS, they already know, but since there was no proof they didn't do anything.

  • Does CPS test the kids for alcohol? Why are you friends with someone who does that? Why wold any mother think that's ok?!?!

  • This is someone that I have decided not to be around anymore. She didn't do it in front of me, but I have heard of her doing it. The kids tested negative for alcohol.

  • All you can do is wait until you know for sure she is doing it then call the police.

  • In many states it is legal for children to drink with their parents, right or wrong, it's the law.
