Today, my ten year old son realized something. Beer is alcohol. People who drink a lot of alcohol are alcoholics. Therefore I am an alcoholic for drinking beer with dinner. He told everyone at his conservative private school and they tried to have an intervention. They pray for me every day. FML

That's what happens when you're religious enough to send your kid to a special school because of it.

That's what you get for not discussing these issues with your child earlier. He's 10 and he just discovered alcohol? And on top of that you haven't taught him enough for him to understand the lack of severity in an adult drinking beer? YDI for allowing your child to stay ignorant, thinking it will preserve his innocence.

PROTIP: stfu alcohol isn't the devil

PRORIP: Why not?

I see what you did there

LOL that must suck. But he's 10...why doesnt he know already?

I knew beer was alcohol since I new what beer was...

I know right? most kids these days actually know about sex by age 9 (at least where I live)

Hey, at least you're getting prayed for. Even if it's because they think you knock em back all day. Lol.

You must get a lot of likes on Facebook. /sarcasm

haha boo conservative private schools definitely deserved that one. if you're gonna raise a kid, you raise em by example. if you tell em drinking is bad, you're therefore telling them that since you're a good parent and role model, you won't drink either :)

They never said that they told their kid that drinking was bad.

welll good job drinking in front of him everyday... YDI

OP didn't say every day, and having a beer isn't drinking, having enough to get you buzzed is drinking.

Once a day isn't bad, especially a beer. He not an alcoholic, he probably doesn't even get a buzz ever.

That's what happens when you're religious enough to send your kid to a special school because of it.

It could be that it was the only good school in the area. My parents aren't religious and it had to go to a Church of England school because it was 10x better than the non religious school.

He probably discussed alcohol, but the kid realized his daily beer is alcohol as well, so here made an assumption. I don't think he deserves it, but he should probably do a better job educating his kid.

Don't drink in front of your kid. You are a role model. Way to go. Also, agreed with #8. If you didn't teach him otherwise, all your fault.

"YDI for allowing your child to stay ignorant, thinking it will preserve his innocence." I hate it when people look at other people's actions or inactions and then give incredibly specific reasons why it happened as a matter of fact.
