alcohol debate... is it ok to get drunk in front of your children and or give under 10's alchohol?
just thought id sound this out as i think there is a cultural issue here as well as a moral one...
I myself have an alcoholic father and a t total mother. I feel very strongly that if on the rare occasions i drink alcohol, my daughter is staying the night elsewhere and she has never seen me drink or drunk. But she knows that Im going out and will be drinking when i do.
My partner thinks an alcoholic beverage of an evening when with the children is acceptable. I do not, i have the view that even one alcoholic drink can have an effect on your reaction times/ perception of things and when caring for your child(ren) why would you feel the need to drink?
BM drinks every night, gets drunk around the children and even gives them wine (they're 9 & 7) She's also tried to drink drive with the children resulting in the police being involved and a visit from social services.
You have just read my opinion. My question is:
Is it ever ok to drink/ get drunk around children? & How far is too far??
