    I drink no big deal, my parents let me drink if I wanted. I sometimes had a drink with dinner or a drink hanging out at home. Alcohol has never been a problem. I smoke from time to time and it isnt harming me or my family. Drugs it depends on the drugs. If they want to experiment with some natural drugs, thats fine with me. If it turns to addiction it over with. I have seen the negative side of drugs and not everyone can handle it. Pretty much everything in moderation and teach the teens responsibility.

    As long as they are at home and they aren't leaving the house - I'm cool... I would MUCH rather they are open and honest with me about the stuff than have to hide it from me like I did...

    I wouldn't mind them having a drink at home, if they are only drinking at home. I would never let someone else's teen drink at my home though, because they are not my responsibility. Drugs and smoking would be punishable, especially drugs.

    NO. My kids will NOT be drinking or smoking until they are of legal age!! As for drugs there is NO drugs allowed no questions about it. I personally don't smoke or drink but I feel that once they are of legal age to smoke cigarettes and once they reach the age to drink that it's their own decision and if they make poor decisions while they are drinking then they can learn the hard way on their own.
