I'm teaching them that alcohol is not a big deal. None of them have shown any interest in getting wasted. They know to drink in moderation. I'm teaching them life and cultural lessons

So basically you allow your children to break the law and drink underage? 

What are you teaching them by allowing this? Seriously? I don't understand parents who are like that!

My kids are too young to really drink it *8 & 4*but I have let them try a sip to taste. When they are older they will be allowed as well. Its better to teach them self control at home then to have them out binge drinking like many other 16 year olds.

My parents let my sister and I have a glass of wine or a beer starting when we were around 17. Neither of us drink more than about a drink or two a month. They said they prefered us trying it at home where they could monitor it and not be driving anywhere.

I buy Some very low alcoholic drinks for my daughter once in a while. you know the 0.05% or something alcoholic drinks? She's 16 almost 17, I don't you can get drunk with that. My 12 year old triplets, I give them unalcoholized fizzy wine, orange juice, and a bit of cherry stuff. Makes them feel like adults and they're happy.

Its not uncommon for parents to allow their teens to drink in their own homes with supervision even in the us. As long as its in moderation then everything should be ok

I do the same with my teens and no, we are not breaking the law. The law in our state is that people under 21 can drink in their home with a parent, guardian, or spouse present. My two younger ones have had a sip here and there, but are too young for a glass. It is very common in my ex-husband's family for the teens to be served wine with dinner. I don't drink much at all and my DH doesn't at all, so it's a rare thing, but I would rather them know that alcohol is no big deal.

It is not illegal to allow your own children to drink alcohol in your own home.  At least not in my state and I live in what's normally considered a "nanny state."  It is only illegal for them to buy it or drink it elsewhere.
