Should minors be allowed to drink alcoholic beverages in their homes with their parents’ consent?

  • I dont know

    Because you can have like a special day or a brothers birthday or a wedding going on and so just have a drink and enjoy the celebration and also your under your parents influence and its a day that you gotta remember so ya thats my fact lol g g

  • They should be able to

    Drinking alcohol can be relaxing, and it can help to clean out your liver. Letting minors drink alcohol lets them figure out how much their body can take without getting drunk, it also teaches them how to be safe with alcohol. If a minor does get drunk, they can realize how bad the hangover can be. That is why minors should be able to drink.

  • Yes They Should!

    They should because they already know that they are gonna do it one day. Why not let them do it so you can teach them the responsibilities of it and also the consequences. It would be better for them to get drunk with their parents and learn the consequences rather then do it at a party and accidentally get hurt or worse...

  • Should minors be allowed to drink alcoholic beverages in their homes with their parents’ consent?

    In Australia eighty-six percent of people over fourteen years of age have drunk alcohol at least once in their lives and many adults enjoy a glass of wine or otherwise after a long day of work to wind down. What is wrong with this? Minors should have the right to consume alcohol as long as there is a parent or guardian in the immediate care of that individual. It is lawful in the state of South Australia for a minor to drink alcohol with their parents’ or legal guardians’ consent; this is also true in public as long as the parent or guardian is present. However, it is illegal for alcohol to be sold to minors or for them to be served an alcoholic beverage within a licenced premise. Although, within this different cultures and families have differing views and opinions which sway which side of the law that they take. In communities that we see as very cultured, such as France and Italy, have laws that are very much the same, so why would we want to change our laws? In regions where this is illegal, many minors drink without their parents’ knowledge, if they drunk with their parents’, it would greatly increase better relationships within a household. Also, many teenagers in these regions consume too much alcohol as it can take a time for the drug to take effect and they have had no way of learning how much they can handle, which can lead to harm, this can seriously affect their social and academic skills as well as many other negative impacts on their life. There is, however, an obvious way to fix this; allow minors to learn their limits in a safe environment. Would it really be a better world if youths could not learn how to stay safe while using alcohol?

  • Yes im 15

    My first time drunk at a party i overdid it and wound up by a tree for the night, his name was jimmy apparentl. I think if i knew my limit that wouldnt have happened and we should learn how to drink before going to a party and chugging 2 pints of whiskey

    Kids are going to drink anyways but i would rather drink with my parents than at a party without them knowing. B b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b bb b b b b b b bb b b

  • Parents should let kids drink

    They should let kids drink at a young enough age to understand the consequences and pleasures of drinking. I don't mean pleasures as in becoming alcoholics or anything but I mean like the okayness of it. Teach your kids not to become heavy drinkers at a young age so they don't see a point when they get older.

  • No drinking for minors

    Why do i feel this way? Cause if it is allowed it will exponentially get more out of control even if parents are there. And what if the parents aren't there but the children have consent and something VERY bad happens, a lot worse compared to the minor not being drunk? Another thing to consider is a minor is not fully matured so they don't know when to cap it off even more so than an adult that is addicted.

  • I completely disagree

    Even if a child's parents allow them to drink alcohol it doesn't mean they wont do any harm to themselves or others. For instance if a parent allows their child to drink with them that means everyone in the family will be affected because they are all drinking. If all the people in a household get drunk then there is no one sober that is there to help if something bad happens to anyone. Moreover one of the drunken members of a family can actually be the one to harm their relation, especially if there has been a recent argument between any members.
    With no one there to help there could be permanent damage done to the house or one of the family members.
    Alcohol alone does damage to a person's brain and body and if one of the minors or any of their family members overdoses on alcohol some of the side effects can be suppressed gag reflex. Someone could choke, and possibly die if they vomit while unconscious and lying on their backs. If vomit is inhaled into the lungs, it can cause a person to stop breathing.
    This is why I think minors, who don't yet know how to control themselves should not be allowed to drink alcohol even with their parents consent.

  • All children underage shouldn't be allowed to drink

    Drinking alcohol at a young age can be brain damaging, giving children a higher chance of academic failure and killing important brain cells.
    Children who start drinking at a young have a greater chance of becoming an alcoholic later on in life.
    Children and teens are changing everyday, they are prone to peer pressure, new and different situations and urges, with these going on and allowing then to ingest alcohol makes them more vulnerable to depression, violence, drug abuse, unprotected sex and much more.
    People saying yes aren't thinking about the consequences and what alcohol can do to you, they think it's the thing now a days, to drink and they don't care how it can affect them.
    All they worry about is trying to fit in and be in the "in group"

  • Remain as it is

    The human mind is fully developed at twenty one but is still going through the process from 11 through 20. Underage drinking can create problems for the mind once the kid gets older they might end up with speech problems or memory loss when they get older. Life is easy when you make the right choices this is a life changing choice.

  • Should minors be allowed to drink alcohol in their homes with their parents' consent?

    I believe that minors being allowed to drink alcohol with their parents consent is bad because they could become alcoholics. Their lives could be ruined because they are now alcoholics. The other side will say that they are training their children to enjoy alcohol, and not to abuse it.

    But most parents while introducing alcohol will give too much because they are not sure how much is right. Some children inherit a severe alcoholic disorder gene which makes them become alcoholics easier. Most younger people that drink alcohol also do other bad things like drugs, stealing, and killing.

    Alcohol drinking at a young age could and probably will mess up your brain. Teaching kids that they can have alcohol will lead them to go to parties and not be 21 and get drunk. This will happen because they won't know when to say they have had enough . For example, a kid that hasn't had alcohol is less likely to go to a party and go straight to see if there is any at the party. The kids that have tried alcohol will go and find and just start out by enjoying it but as they get more into the party they will get pressured into getting drunk. The kids that didn't go straight for the alcohol might not even know that there is alcohol at the party. Then the kid that got drunk drives home and is caught by a cop or gets in an accident and kills someone else. But the other child gets home safely.

    Alcohol is a bad thing and people should try to stay away from it altogether. But if you do drink alcohol don't drink it till you are at the right age and that age is 21. Another form of accident that could happen from a person being able to have alcohol at a young age is that the child could go out with his/her friends and have a little alcohol. Then as he/she is driving home he/she could get pulled over. Or worse they could get into an accident.
    In conclusion I think that you shouldn't have alcohol at a young age because it can result in all kinds of bad thing. Like accidents, going to jail, and even worse death. You can get brain damage and have kidney failure and liver damage from drinking too much. Well that is my take on minors being allowed to drink alcohol in their homes with their parents' consent.

  • The drinking age should remain as it is

    If a parent allows a minor child to have a taste of an alcoholic beverage, or to have a small drink, there should be no penalty for that. It makes alcohol less mysterious and may make children less tempted to drink when their parents are not around. However the drinking age should remain at 21. There are too many risks to let minors drink earlier on a regular basis.
