It's far, far better to teach your children that all alcohol is evil than to teach them about responsible drinking. That way, when they're 17 and at their first unsupervised party with their friends, they'll chug 40 ounces of vodka in 1/2 an hour (because the cool kids keep bragging that that's what they do every weekend) and then die of acute alcohol poisoning.

/oh I know... not *your* kids, of course

insertsnarkyusername: I'm in the same state as you. Unfortunately they are not banned from tasting rooms and a lot of rural bars don't give a shiat about kids being in them.



Damn....that's right. I hate it when parents take their kids to wineries.. At least my local beer bar/bottle shop is considered to be a tavern, so kids are banned.

So when it comes to rural bars, are you talking about little kids or high school/college kids?

There is no right way of introducing kids to alcohol.

As a corollary, there is no wrong way of introducing kids to alcohol. As long as they're not putting them in a coma, parents should be able to use their own discretion.

TheGogmagog: In Ohio it's legal for you to serve your own child alcohol even in a pub. The server can't serve the child but they can serve you and you can in turn serve your child. Of course age 4 and 3 'shot glasses' (three ounces?) is pretty far out there, even for European standards and I could see child negligence charges, as were brought up in this case. The child's testimony shouldn't be admissible, and I am suspect of the bystanders assessment of how much he drank.


Ohio is not in Europe.

ltdanman44: kindms: Ow! That was my feelings!: I farking despise people who bring their kids to the bar. And no a sports bar that might serve burgers is not an appropriate place for kids, either. Lost count how many confrontations I've gotten into because stupid people think a drinking establishment is an ok place for kids.

//No, I'm sure my alcoholic dad taking me to the bar as a kid probably has nothing to do with my strong feelings on the matter.

F-U

Seriously just because your dad was a drunk doesn't mean bonding with the old man and his pals at a sports bar is a bad thing. Showing kids how to responsibly use alcohol is the key. I'm guessing your dad being a drunk wasn't really concerned with you, you were just there.

exactly, every dad who brings a kid into a bar isn't doing what your dad did.


Yeah not every dad plays with their son's butt hole after a night of drinking at the bar. Get your dad's finger out of your ass and chill out.

snarfyboy: LeroyBourne: Stay the hell out of Wisconsin. You can bring your 18 y/o kid with you to the bar, and as long as they can prove the adults are his/her parents the kid can drink.

Doesn't have to be 18. In fact I don't know if there is even is a minimum age. What that women was doing may well be legal here.


It is.

I lived in a coal mining town in PA.
When your dad had you for the day, he could take you to a bar.
You could sit on a stool next to him.

Mind you, this was the early 60's.


If someone bought you a drink, you could call it.
Pepsi, or beer, and I usually chose Pepsi.
Unless I was too wound from the caffeine, then I might say beer.
You'd get a "pony" or a 7 ouncer in a glass from the tap and nurse it.

You would marvel at how so many people could gather together in a state of brotherhood, and play pool, listen to the juke box, and tell stories.

It gave you a sense of community.

At 9 AM.

On a Sunday.

"Don't tell your mom"
and free peppermints on the way home, walking, after visiting the 5 & dime.

Good times.

/They had Playboys in the magazine rack at the barbershop.
//I always went for the supermans, and batmans, because they were issues 1-7 and the barber bought them out before us kids could.
///That guy could cut hair and tell stories all day. Not a bad job.

The Southern Logic Company: Holy fark, I used to work there.

Doesn't surprise me, people used to line up at the door at 10am for our "Bloody Mary Buffet." Was in a classy-ish area but for some reason attracted white trash.


Weird. Persons who drink before noon are usually the classiest people.

bars and drunken adults are not for kiddies. i consider establishments that allow white trash parents to bring in their little ones to be a dump or a dive, and i don't go back a second time.

She should come to Wisconsin, what she was doing would be 100% legal.

As long as you are accompanied by your parent or guardian you can drink as much as you want at ANY age.
