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?

Some don't get the celebration of the eucharist, What makes you think other lessons from church will spring up here?

My kids are not "products" of anything. They are people. Fairly well-educated people, true. Only on this board have I encountered the idea that being well-educated is something to be ashamed of. OK, here and in the Republican primary debates.

That's it? You think my kids have been to Europe too many times? Oh, please. I have to spend months at a time in Europe for my job. What was I supposed to do, leave them at home? Is there something in particular about European travel that turns kids into narcissists?

We've lived all over the county and I can assure you my kids are brought up to respect every thing/one around them, I've been incredibly lucky. But don't compare that to what you do b/c it's not the same thing.

Thanks for sharing but it doesn't change where an equal amount of blame lies.
