Teens and Alcohol

Do you think that teens should be exposed to alcohol to learn how to drink responsibly? For instance, do you allow your teen(s) to have a social beverage from time to time (something light like a wine cooler)? 

Or do you feel that until they are legal age, no drinking ANY alcohol, no matter how light or simple, is allowed?

Hmm.. yes and no.

I am sure some teens would know how to control themselves and other teens would go overboard. Shit, even adults are still super irresponsible with alcohol.
I think I would let my kid have a wine cooler or a beer with crabs when he is a teen, however I wouldnt let him have as many as he wants even under my supervision.

We don't really drink so it doesn't come up often. If we had it here, I would offer it to my 19 year old.

My parents let me, and I am fine. But I think it depends on the maturity and personality of the child.

I don't think they "should" be exposed, but I don't disagree with teens having a drink with a responsible figure. We don't drink so I don't know if my kids will have the opportunity to drink with me as teens or not. I'm not opposed to it though.

No I do not think that teens should drink, however I may allow my teen to have a glass of wine or something on a special occasion. I havent decided yet.
