Good for you, stick to your guns.I know from personal experience, i've got a child graduating who is infuriated with me right now because i specifically stated that no one under 21 will be served alchol at the party.
I was told that i embarrassed my kids and now no one will want to come.
I will keep it clean on this forum of my response but i basically stated that i dont give a rats as s, until they are 21 - i will strictly enforce this because i'd rather they be pissed off at me than us as parents receiving a call or an unwanted invite to the ME's office to identify a body due to DWI accident. I also don't want it on my conscience the rest of my life that i allowed this and one of their friends drove away and got hurt or hurt someone else. That is putting the legal ramifications last - i'm putting my personal views/feelings first. Then i'll add i'd like to keep my job and home as well. But personal safety is first and i am no longer a cool parent...oh well, my kids will understand when they are parents someday.
Most parents are home for parties...come on parents, just enforce this - isn't it worth our kids lives ?? it is for mine and i'm considering your child too, please do the same for us ?
Unfortunately, if they head to a park and drink, its out of our control, we just have to hope they use wise choices, but it takes someone over 21 to purchase the alcohol and that person is not concerned of our kids either. This is sad.
Bad enough we have adult drunk drivers, we don't need kids too.
