Underage Drinking

We have friends who find nothing wrong with allowing their 16 year olds to drink. They allow them to have beer pong parties with their friends (because they are doing it in their home) and allow them to try different types of wines (In their words "to make them a connoisseur of wine").

We find this unacceptable as if they are doing it at home, you know they are doing it elsewhere and these kids are able to drive now so I can not believe that none of them ever drive home drunk.

What does everyone think of this?

Nothing shocks me Pka about kids. Maybe because parents think if they have their kids in private school they wouldnt have to know and deal with things. Same things happen, you are just paying more lol.

I haven't read anything from anyone else in this thread that would injure your reputation. ;)

You dont need to work with kids to know that about pot. Older kids, the news, staying up to date with the world keeps you ahead of these things.

I think you've seen a pretty graphic example of what lengths people are willing to go to to protect their children online, Jam.

You don't learn, do you Hazel? The reason you are in this mess in the first place is that you dragged people's children into the debate.

Not sure why this would have anything to do with the alcohol thread that was started. PKA can answer this as well as the others who posted it. I am sure they wont rat out their friend though who is the biggest stalker there is.

What are you talking about?
