Do you do drink alcohol?

How do you feel about drinking around kids?

Yes I drink. Not often and NEVER in front of my kids. I don't even go out and drink and then come home to have to take care of my kids when DH is gone.

I drink. Not too often, and i have NEVER been drunk. I drink till I'm tipsy, then i back off. I usually drink more for the flavor than anything, and like i said its not all the time. Since i don't get drunk i have no problem drinking around my kids. My husband gets drunk, but he isn't stupid about it. LOL.

I drink. Very occasionally.

I will have a drink around my kids. I want my kids to know there is responsibility. But I don't drive after a drink and I stop at one.

Some of my neighbors get trashed while their kids are awake and it drives me insane. SO irresponsible.

I rarely drink alcohol and never around our son.  If I'm going to have a drink it's going to be after he's been in bed long enough to be asleep and even then it's not to excess.  Maybe 2 or 3 margaritas then I'm off to bed.  I watched what drinking did to my mom and swore that would never be me.

I drink every now and then.  Sometimes around the kids.  They aren't going to die if mommy has a drink or two.  I don't get trashed or to the point where I can't still care for them.  I try to wait until they are in bed, but sometimes I just want a drink when I want it.

I will have a drink with dinner sometimes, that's the extent of my drinking. I take issue with drunks too. lol If you are a drinker and your kids see that daily, shame shame. 

My BIL is a maintenence alcoholic. It makes me sad.

We drink socially. If we have a party, our children are there and yes, they will see us consume alcohol.

If we go out to dinner as a family, and one of us feels like having a beer or a margarita, we will. I dont get trashed in front of my children -- I don't get trashed any more period.

Ok, with the exception of that one night at the strip club.
