cigrmaster - Couldn't agree more. I think this is one of those common sense things that a lot of todays parents [and kids] don't get. They would rather whine about their "situation" than take responsibility for it.I have always told my kids they need to make their own decisions in life and to live with the consequences.
Brewshooter - Another excellent point. I am back to brewing beer kits on a regular basis and enjoy sitting down with a beer or two on Fri/Sat evening but I don't drink to excess. I may even enjoy a single beer during a weekday evening while relaxing by the woodstove. Back along the lines of kashmir's point, I would rather expose them to responsible drinking than shelter them from it.I also discuss the concept of moderation.
