Do you have alcohol in your home? How do you keep your kids from getting into it?

From toddlers to teens - how do you store your alcohol and prevent kids from getting into it?  For those with teens, do you mark the bottles?

I have a toddler and an infant.  My 3 year old knows that she is not allowed to touch or have alcohol.  We keep it in the freezer, fridge or top shelf of the pantry.  She is a kid that just follows the rules.  My 1 year old is not that kid.  So we'll have to find a better place for it when she gets a bit older.

hardly ever, we keep it up and away or it's gone quickly (we would drink wine once in awhile) but no teens here

the 4yo asks before getting anything to eat or drink, but he knows what "daddy drinks" (beer) are and that they are just for grown-ups. the 3mo... well all he cares about is milk lol.

no idea what we will do when our boys are teenagers.

We don't have alcohol on the house. We aren't drinkers. If we go to a BBQ we will take a couple drinks but sometimes we don't even do that. We just aren't drinkers. Also we don't have teens yet.

we have a wine fridge and a liquor cabinet. The kids never go in either. They've been taught it is off limits.

My alcohol is not locked up. I have teens but i trust them. If they were drinkers or hung out with drinkers i would lock it up.

We have the wine in wine fridges and the kids know they are off limits. Other liquor is top shelf of the pantry. They aren't really old enough to be interested yet. It's the candy we have to worry about!

No we dont keep it in the house-but when we do have it-it goes in the bottom drawers where the kids dont go.

We've never had an issue with missing liquor-if anything DH or I gets a 6pck and we drink it that night. I dont believe in keeping liquor in the house.
