@Midnight: You know what it means, lol

Haha. Specification is useful at times.

Here is the problem as I see it. Teens drink, it has been this way forever. The problems happen with poor guidance into any new endeavor. The way it has been stigmatized, parents are not allowed (socially) any input into this transition. If you had a teen that you would share a glass of wine with during dinner, or a beer on the weekend, the normalization removes a large part of the rebellious appeal. That they still drink is a given, so seeing a different face of drinking is useful.

@TBR: Underage drinking is illegal in France, but French parents allow their teenage children - often even tweens - to drink in the house, and provide a lot of guidance for it...

If you really wanna be mindfucked, look at the New Zealand regulations (or lack there of) XD

@reece Isn't it legal for anybody of any age to drink alcohol in New Zealand, but only people 18+ can buy it?
reece says2015-08-12T03:04:32.5080988Z
@triangle.128k Pretty much. But i think people under 16 need to be supervised by their own parent(s). That's just a recent law that was passed.

People who are 16 can buy alcohol in Germany I think.
reece says2015-08-12T03:08:27.4456048Z
Yeah, isn't it for certain percentages?
TBR says2015-08-12T04:13:03.1188487Z
And that is the proper example. I am not going to get my son liquored up, but it is naïve to expect him to never drink or do some drugs. We have to show proper guidance, and not set silly and unrealistic expectations. When my son goes out and drinks, I want him to not think of it as 'binge' drinking just to get drunk off his ass.

Yeah, I find the alcohol laws a bit strange here in NZ..... But then again, making it more difficult to obtain and making it at the same time less impressive to be able to drink it? I took a sip of an alcoholic beverage once, found it disgusting, I don't plan to drink a drop in future.
