You are a bad parent if...

You are a bad parent if you let your son/daughter smoke weed (or any recreational drug) or underage drink. Step up, quit being lazy and parent your damn children and don't give me that excuse, "Well, they are going to do it, why not just let them do it safely?" NO. Not at all kids are going to do it. I didn't when i was a teenager and I didn't because my mom was on my case about it. She wasn't lazy, she stepped up and disciplined me. 

Bash me all you want, but I will never let my kids smoke weed/ drink in my house. I take parenting seriously. And I am a new mom. Pregnant with my first (boy) in August! But, I love him and I won't allow him to do any harm to himself. Alcohol is illegal in my state and even if it wasn't, I find nothing good about alcohol. Me being a new mom has nothing to do with the way I have planned to parent...

I love how half the people comment aboout how they let thier kids have sips. Quit being so sensitive. I'm not saying you can't give them a sip. Jesus christ.. use your brains. I'm talking about the parents who let their kids get wasted or stoned.

I dont agree at all. It is 100% legal for me to buy my underage child alcohol. They are too young for it now but when they are older teens I sure will buy them alcohol for special occasions. Also by the time they are of age marijuana will be legal if they want to smoke it then i would not be against it.

I take parenting seriously too, which is why I understand that I won't be able to control my kids forever... while I don't approve of underage drinking/smoking.. I will not punish my children for doing it. I will however punish my children if I'm lied to about it.

I can get arrested for what? 

If it was legal for them to smoke and they want to then how can i get arrested for it?

It is 100% legal for me to buy and supply alcohol to my own children how could i get arrested for it?

Not true. It is perfectly legal for me to buy alcohol and allow my child to drink it in my home as long as I am here.

Not only are you a bad parent. But you're a criminal.

In most states it is perfectly legal for a parent to supply their child with alcohol. How does that make them a criminal?

It is illegal to purchase alcohol for a MINOR period. It is ILLEGAL to SUPPLY alcohol to underage children. Seriously thought this was common knowledge
