My ex let my DD get a margarita with her dinner for her birth day. Well she got pretty drunk and he brought her home puking

Would you be pissed? He says I am overreacting. I dont think so at all

ETA: I live in texas

Eta2: It is legal here. Look at the info at the link below. 

ETA3: I would not have been as mad if he was trying to teach her how to drink responsibly. However this situation is not like that. There was nothing responsible about it. 


8. on alcohol-selling premises, with parental approval in 10 states

Examples: restaurant, bar, or a venue where alcohol is sold

Connecticut, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Was this in a restaurant or at his house? At a restaurant yes I'd be pissed, also pissed that he brought her back drunk. But I also believe if it was at his house controlled and she didn't leave that house until the next morning it is ok

I would be pissed. That is contributing to the delinquency of a minor, at least in my state (some states let minors drink at home if parents allow). No you aren't over reacting IMO.

I would be pissed. Alcoholism is rampant in both mine & dh's family....encouraging a 16 yo to drink is just irresponsible
