Would you drink and/or get high with your kids around?

A friend of mine went to a party for a teen's birthday and the parents there were drinking and smoking pot.

What do you think of this? Would you drink and/or get high with your kids around?

Never gotten high, ever. Drank a drink here and there at the pool on vacation.
What if your kids get hurt or sick and you need to drive?? Very reckless and irresponsible.
At a party, I would have called the cops probably, and or left. I wouldn't have friends like that.

I think that's stupid, very, very stupid. If something happened, nobody would be in any shape to handle it. I never have gotten high and never would, and I don't get drunk around my kids. I'm responsible for them and I cannot be responsible if I'm acting that dumb.

Depends, were the parents drunk? You can drink and not become drunk. I see no harm throwing a couple wine coolers back in the presence of chidren. Becoming impaired, is different. Doing something illegal is different. I would not do something illegal with my children present, as it sets a trashy example, to say the least.

I'll have a couple beers with my kids around. I don't ever get drunk unless they're with my in laws. I haven't gotten stoned in 9 years (before I had babies) so no.

They were drinking heavily AND smoking pot. The combination would be bad even if they weren't drinking heavily.

I've never gotten stoned, but I do drink a beer or two with them around. I think it's good for them to see me drink responsibly, sitting on my couch, not driving anywhere, etc., rather than hiding it from them and preaching to them not to drink. This way they'll hopefully learn as I did that drinking isn't bad, it's how much you drink and what you do that could be harmful.

Personly I would smoke pot before I would drink around my kids, but then again I already do smoke and it doesn't have any offect on how I take care of my kids.  They are healthy, get to play, get feed healthy meals everyday, go to school, get their school work done, go to bed at a normal time, do chores.  Oh and all my house work gets done and I also work 3 hours a day on weekdays.  So I guess I don't really see a problem as long as they are being responcable

not get high ever, and wouldn't drink at a teen's birthday. the only time I drink is when my children are not home (and even then I only have 1 to 2 beers tops)
