I fail how to see how this is bad, you gave your daughter a talk about abusing alcohol and you were having a drink yourself? So what? Unless you abuse it yourself there's no problem. I think you should let her try something small like wine at first to show her she's not missing out on anything.
why discourage your kids from underage drinking? as long as they're not on street corners drinking and having sex is its not that dangerous i have a glass of wine with my mum once in a a while and i rarely binge drink you should have shared the bottle with her - it'll be reyt
So the fuck what if she was drinking while talking to her daughter? She's a responsible adult, her daughter is a teenager. It's not being hypocritical at all. I'm pretty sure the daughter's more likely to give in to peer pressure at a party than the mom. Fuck you guys who think she's being a hypocrite and say "great parenting."
Plus guys, it's wine, it's not like the mother was throwing back shots while lecturing her. It is mostly agreed upon that a glass of wine a day is good for your heart. The mother was lecturing on the effects of alcohol, teenagers and young adults have a tendenacy to binge drink, and she was probably talking about the effects of drinking to much since one drink probably isn't going to do too much and letting her know she doesn't have to if she doesn't want too. And the mother is of age, unless she was telling her daughter never to drink, she's not a hypocrite in the least.
I hope your daughter turns out the same way you did. An alcoholic. YDI.
