Was I being unreasonable?? Drinking at a family gathering
My parents are recovering alcoholics and while my drinking never got horrible, I don't drink because it makes me feel out of control and out of respect for my parents. My in laws don't really drink either so it's not a problem on holidays with them.
However, last night at the dinner his cousins who are all between 21 and 30 brought beers, wine, mixed drinks, etc. out at at dinner time and brought them to the table. I was so taken aback. My kids are 6 and 8 and there were lots of other littles and I don't think drinking around children is okay. I asked them to put it away until all the little were tucked in or at least playing and away from them and they said no, absolutely not. Some even started laughing. I was so pissed I just kept my kids distracted through dinner.
We're going back today but I'm not staying with my kids til dinner. Was I so unreasonable to think they shouldn't be drinking around kids and should wait til they're not around?
