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?

The very best kind of security is a close community that watches out for each other.

I agree but community can't watch everything. Did your schools have training sessions yet? Most people have said they have done that at their child's schools all over the nation.

Are you talking to me? Because I have said I am not going to discuss details of school security lest one of those nutcases Puss mentions takes it upon herself to exploit a possible soft spot.

I wouldn't either if it was a private school that did not have much security.

How do we keep children safe on the internet..  And why are they friending people they don't know?  I thought alchohol was just the issue here.

The pope and criminal charges?  Hmm, I haven't heard that one yet..  Is that coming from a credible source or just the huffingtonpost?
