  • My oldest daughter is 23 and I guess she was 21. My youngest is 17 and she has drank with me on a few occasions

  • My children are still children, 13, and 10. So, in the future by about 5-8 years, likely, depending on the laws.

    I never had a drink w my parents, as an adult, until I was in my 30's, then it was just natural.. holidays or visits or hard days..

  • My oldest turned 21 last June. Me and my friends and some of her friends took her to a bar and had a few drinks. It was so much fun.

  • I ended up having a glass of win when she was in her 30's, mainly because I hardly ever drink.

  • I have four children- I promised them I would take them out for their first drink on their 21st birthday if they did not drink until then. Our daughter and I went out on her birthday along with grandparents,my husband (her dad), and several friends. She did not finish the drink- none of the 3 boys made it to 21 before drinking so we have not drank with them. It was special for her and for us.

  • I don't think I ever have. We stopped drinking in front of our kids when they became teens. Even when we took my oldest to dinner for his 21st b day i didn't drink. I still don't drink much at all.

  • My husband and I let our son have an O'Doul's when he turned 19. I am always worried that one of my sons is drinking under age when he is at school. Oh well, I can remember doing that so maybe I shouldn't be worried.

  • I've never had an adult drink with my children. My DH & I don't drink alcohol, but our 2 kids do. They, however, rarely drink in front of us.
