Parents That Allow Their Teens To Drink At Home...ETA
This has got to be one of the most irresponsible things to do and the argument for it is pathetic.
If you allow your child to drink at home because you believe it is safer for them to do it at home where they can be supervised then god knows where, you are either extremely naive or have ZERO common sense.
It absolutely irks me that someone would think it is okay to give their child, or the childs friends a "safe" environment to drink. I will not condone underage drinking with my teens, and if I find out another parent undermines me,and contributes to my child drinking, they will have hell to pay. And shame on you if you are one of those parents.
I kind of went off on a rant here. I had intended on posting specifically about giving you're teen's friends alcohol. Many of my friends in high school had parents that allowed this, and would often throw parties for us, their kids still partied outside the home. Their parents would usually say "at least here, we can supervise you" If my mother found out that another parent was "supervising" my drinking, she would have burnt their house down. lol. This is what pisses me off more than anything. If you or your parents let you teen have a glass of wine or a beer as a right of passage type thing, I did not mean to offend you.
