Now that's something that I never thought anyone would be so stupid to try. Good luck with that one, you'll need it.
77 is right. I used to work at a liquor store. I live in Oklahoma, so we legally had to close until 7 on election days and certain holidays. I would have complaints from our alcoholics that they absolutely had to consume mouth wash, aftershave, even rubbing alcohol because we were closed. There are some alcoholics that will do anything to get a drink.
Things kids will do to "fit in"... But really, I wish people like him go through health class.
They don't cover those kinda things(how drugs work) in health class. My health class experience was basically "condoms are useless and so is birth control and if you have sex outside of marriage you'll never have a meaningful relationship and oh yeah, don't do drugs".
22 - you must think that most European parents are insane then because light drinking from an early age is a long standing cultural norm in most if not all of Europe. I started earlier than 14, for the record, and I drink less than all of my friends who weren't allowed to touch alcohol before they turned 19. I rarely binge drink, unlike them, because it simply does not interest me. Alcohol is not a novelty item, it's just another beverage to choose from that happens to carry a high price tag. When underage I was generally restricted to beer and wine in typical European fashion and only allowed liquor when I got a little older, however there had to be a special occasion of some sort before I'd be allowed any to begin with! Bad parenting? Absolutely not! In fact, it's even explicitly permitted by law in my province, the province with the strictest liquor laws in all of Canada. Should a 14 year old be getting drunk? Preferably not, but if it were to inadvertently happen because they're lightweights they'll learn the hard way what a hangover feels like and they won't want to repeat their mistake. Just my two cents.
59 is right, more parents should be giving their teens small amounts of wine beer, not only will the taste put them off, but it takes away the novelty from it, because you're not being restrictive and making it a forbidden fruit. Honesty, is what works with teens. You get conservative and/or religious parents treating their teens like their children, then the have the audacity to act suprised when their kids are out drinking and taking drugs to rebel and having unprotected sex.
