Drunk teens welcome at my house!

Would you or do you allow your teen to drink at your house? Would you host a party with your teen that served alcohol?

Basically, are you the type of parent to allow your teen to drink at all, ever?

I'll let my own drink when they're older teens. I will not allow someone else's kids to drink in my home without their permission.

Egh DD is 9 now and I couldn't imagine her ever wanting to drink. Hopefully she never wants to I don't drink at all, but DH has a beer or 2 when he gets home from work. As a teenager I do not think I would allow it .

Nope.

In fact a family just did this and allowed a group of them to get into a car wasted (my brother included) and they crashed, none had seatbelts on and my brother almost died. Now I don't blame them entirely but if you're going to allow teens to be drinking, take their keys away. The parents are facing jail time.

I would rather my teen drink at home with me then some where else. I won't provide some else's teen with alcohol.

No. In my small town there was a member of the high school PTA committee that hosted the after prom party last year. She provided alcohol. Later 4 kids left that party while intoxicated, got in a wreck. Two died, one list his legs and the only one with a seatbelt on walked away with only a scratch. This mom is now serving jail time and had a notorious reputation around the town. It's just not worth it.

Occasionally, for my own kids, yes.
