I've seen kid's whose parents by them alchohol, and i think it's fine as long as they know their kids are responsible, and stay home if they get ****faced, wht do you think?

I don't care, they can do what they want. As long as they don't crash into me when they go to try to drive.

That's how my guitarist's parents are. It's pretty awesome to party with someone's dad.

No, because that means they are irresponsible parents who are breaking the law.
Sure, they might be supervising the kid, but he's gonna get ****faced and kill his liver in the process before he hits 21.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

Lol, you kinda have to be a huge dumb**** to really believe buying your child alcohol will teach them responsible drinking habits.

my parents let me drink at home but only like a drink at a time, but they're vehemently against me drinking outside of home. my dad is cool though and his philosophy is that if you're old enough to be killed overseas than you're old enough to drink. so when i'm 18 he'll let me do whatever

Everyone knows learning drinking habits from friends is much more beneficial than learning drinking habits from parents.

I would rather have my kid drink and hang out with me, supervised, than have him sneak out to some house party and drink with a bunch of his drunk friends and have the possibility to get in huge trouble.

Its fine if they think their son/daughter is old enough to drink. Age limits aren't the best guideline, more about how mature physically and mentally they are. All my friends' parents used to buy them beer and we used to drink at their places, because we were resonsible, didn't go overboard (usually :P) etc. The point is, there is no difference between the government saying you can drink and your parents saying you can drink except the parent is more likely to have your best interests in mind.

Yeah. If the kids are not allowed to drink at home, they are definitely NOT going to feel a need to go out and get hammered at parties.

i smoked the marijuana cigarettes with my girlfriends mom the first time i met her. of course, she lives with her grandparents, but it still rocked.

most of the alcoholism and alcohol-related incidents can be abated by an earlier introduction to alcohol, get to know the beast.

either way, it weeds out the idiots by the time theyre 24, so it all works well for society

edit: i forgot to add, the parents should be able to decide whether or not their child is mature enough, drinking at 14 isnt something i support at all, for example. id say the general guideline is between 16 and 18. personally, im expecting 17 for my kids when they grow up.... or are born... or are conceived

Haha, WRONG. If a parent over 21 buys alcohol for their child who is at least 16, and the child drinks in their parent's house with the parent's consent, it's legal.

actually, from what i've experienced firsthand, the kids who have no experience with alcohol tended to be the most problematic in college.
one or two times, we dealt with guys who had never had so much as a sip of beer in their lives (and before you say it, no, we didn't pressure them, they decided to drink of their own accord), and they wound up frighteningly drunk (we were afraid we might have to take one of them to the hospital). you don't have to be an alcoholic to die of alcohol poisoning.
being able to have a couple beers responsibly with your dad is probably the best way to learn what the stuff does to your system in a controlled environment. unless your dad is a prick and lets you get way too hammered.

Yeah, no actually.

These laws can vary from city to city, county to county, state to state.

Its definitely not legal where I am from... and in the US, there's very few places that allow that.

And everyone who drinks is over 16, correct?

It's no difference. Kids get ****faced everywhere regardless of consent by the parents.

In fact, it surprises me that half of Long Island isn't grounded, because everyone there got ****faced in their own houses while their parents were upstairs probably having anal sex.

I mean, if you can't even catch them and they've got the basement door open, you're a horrible parent.

Nah, those parents generally piss me off. They are usually trying to be their kid's best friend and not a parent.

When I got the information it was comparing it from country to country. The U.S. was broken into states, and I only looked at New York (seeing as that's where I'm from.)
What I stated before is the law enforced (of course you're right, it could differ from city to city) in New York.

True, but you'd be hard pressed to find a parent who would buy someone that young alcohol. Even at 16 I would think of it as irresponsible, I'm just saying that, (at least where I am) it isn't illegal, like you said.

Dammit, i forgot the question. but yes!
