Recognizing the dangers of drinking, this mom group has rules and practices moderation when it comes to alcohol: No more than one drink per play date, and everyone walks home.

Yeah, that sounds about right.

They should try some marijuana instead,  none of the dangers of alcohol and much more relaxing.

I would never consider being with a woman that drank during the day. I'm seriously lucky to have a Mom that only smoked weed occasionally, and generally only when we went to the Zoo or something with the little group of moms and kids we hung out with. I knew a lot of kids whose parents drank, a lot in many cases. Like seriously a lot. There were a few that had parents that you did NOT try to interact with until they'd had at least two stiff drinks, and never on a weekend morning. Three cocktails after work every day was pretty average.

Oooooooooooooh, boy, until mommy gets tossed and is on her little week of the month, and/or daddy comes home tossed with the wifebeater on and she's on the rag............... it might get just a little ugly, especially in an Irish Catholic home.

I think I saw my mom drink one swig of Guinness and one of Rolling Rock, and maybe a glass of Cold Duck in 40 years. Too bad the tee-total gene didn't get passed down like the Slav drinking gene from my father's side did...

IIRC, the most my Mom had in one sitting was probably half a bottle of wine.

And to be honest, with a lot of the stress my brother and I gave her in our youth, she deserves a medal for not being a heavy drinker back then.

Alcohol can be so destructive to families, health, and society but it's the little green plant that can get you locked up.

"Kids are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

Having a glass with dinner is beneficial,  drinking to relieve stress usually involves larger quantities,  enough to cause health issues.

My son likes for me to get tipsy because then I can play with him without little warning sirens going off in my head that I'm totally not supposed to be doing this. Or I feel foolish. I got loud and drunk once and he really biatched about it. Anyway, we stock up liquor for the year around New Years. We replace tequila and scotch probably once or twice. Usually the tequila gets taken to a party and shared. We drink beer that stays in the fridge for weeks.

Really, my drug of choice is Xanax.

I'm very skeptical about studies involving things that people have a vested interest in having people either do or not do so depending on who was behind the study I'd discount it as hack science.  Considering the lies surrounding cannabis and the cherry-picking of evidence that goes on with a lot of these studies I'd assume it was biased or not true.

My kid wasn't planned. Also, I suffer from severe anxiety. So, shut your trap. My kid is perfectly happy. He gets to go do cool stuff like meet his idol Stephen Amell who plays Green Arrow. He also gets to dress up in costumes and he goes to the grocery store in his costumes. He plays on the monkey bars and climbs as high as he wants. He plays outside in the dirt. He goes to museums. He goes to the park. He plays and wrestles with both of us. He has two parents that love each other very much. He has a roof over his head, food in his belly, and the utmost support for whatever he decides is best for him. He takes dance lessons to instill a sense of hard work and accomplishment in him. He has books by the hundreds at his immediate disposal. His answers about anything and everything are answered promptly and appropriately. I don't think that he has a bad life. I meet him half way. He wanted a tea party so we had real tea with a real tea pot and real tea cups and cookies. We color together. I make him super hero costumes. I make him pajama pants because he really wanted the Star Trek fabric. I make him medieval costumes with things like the Spider Man fabric he wanted. He's in kindergarten and writing in cursive. He takes fencing and archery both of which I participate in with him. Go judge someone else. We have more important things to do like jam out to AC/DC.

Back to the article, it's basically a summary of some moms who have a glass of wine while their kids play who make a point to not have it turn into a drunken mess and then an unrelated story about one mom who was an alcoholic and now isn't...I'd say if you're stressed and getting together with some other moms and having a glass of wine helps go for it.

If this were an article about a bunch of women who get together after work and have a glass of wine or a bunch of men who get together after work and have a beer or two it wouldn't ever have been published because it isn't a story...but since they are moms it's like they are committing some massive sin by getting together and having a drink.

Yes.  But I don't plan on having children and I rarely use cannabis so it's kind of a moot point but if there was a study that said there was that high of a chance I would automatically assume it was not true and dismiss it as propaganda.

Props to you; my best friend has some similar issues so I've heard her similar fears. Some day he'll understand... You might try keeping a journal about it though, to give to him when he's older to help with the comprehension... In fact I should tell her the same thing.
