So, I think we have all done it. Had a drink of alcohol before we were of age. Here in Canada the legal age is 18. I had never thought of this until now. I have a teenager on my hands and 3 more to go. So, here’s the thing, I know that kids her age are having party’s and not only that, their parents are buying them alcohol for these party’s.
The fact that these parents are buying these 16 and 17 year old’s booze bothers me. But I just look at it and say, it’s them, not me. My daughter knows I will not buy it for her.
I think it’s a problem that their parents are buying them booze. Most of these kids have just gotten their drivers licenses and feel they have something to prove when they are driving a car. Never mind arming them with alcohol too!
I won’t say say that I have never offered her a drink. I have told her if she wants to try some wine or a cooler, she can try it at home, not at a party. It’s unbelievable what some guys are doing to girls at parties and what they put in their drinks. A lot of date rapes are going around-whole other topic!!!
Anyhow, my thing here is, am I showing her the right thing? Yes, I have offered my 16 1/2 year old a glass of wine or a cooler. I have never bought her alcohol to take somewhere else. I always tell her when she goes to a party-NO DRINKING!!!!
I don’t understand where these other parents are coming from. Buying and supplying the alcohol??? Is it me? Am I just old school?? Is it just today’s day and age?? Do I need to grow up and get with the time??
What’s your thought and please tell me how it is!!
