Saw this in another post and I truly do not understand why people are against it. So why are you against it?

 A drink here and there?  Nothing wrong.  Getting wasted?  That's another issue.

I'm not against it if the parents are responsible and teach their children how a responsible adult enjoys adult freedoms.

I'm not against it. When we drink in front of our children, we are showing them that alcohol can be used responsibly and you don't have to drink to get drunk.

We are foodies...sometimes a great wine or a good craft beer is the perfect accompaniment to a good meal...haha...

And we cook with alcohol as well...

Only against getting wasted in front of your kids. I have no problem with showing your kids that it's fine to drink responsibly.

 I mean, theres nothing wrong with having a glass of wine, but getting totally shitfaced infront of your kids is irresponsible. I mean, would you smoke weed infront of your kids?

Drinking is fine.
Getting drunk is not.
Big difference.

I'm not against it but if the parent drinks and becomes a complete asshole and obnoxious, then that's my problem.
