Let kid's be kids is what I say.
Like I've said before, if a parent can't raise a kid that's better than him in every way, he's not worth a damn.
I do believe it's 20 in Michigan.
Dude...whats a few brewski's gonna do every now and then? As long as the kid(im hoping over then 13) is not outside or whatever...then I think it's ok.
Whats wrong with tossin' back some Coors with pops?

And you know, of course, how easy it is from all of your child rearing experience?
It's funny to me that it seems like the people who know the best way to raise kids are the ones who don't have them.
Well,Every now and then I let my 2 sons toss back some with me. But, I don't let 'em get Sh1t faced. They're mature about it.
Response to edited post.
It's nice to have positive role models.
Ive noticed its usually those people whose parents were very strict and kept them away from the stuff are generally the ones who go crazy with it first chance they get.
Im sure you know one of those guys.
I am 18 and a pretty regular drinker. I don't drink to be "cool" seeing as I have like 4 friends, but I drink because I like the feeling of not feeling, it is something you non-drinkers/drug users just wouldn't understand.
No, but I do know because my parents busted their asses to do it for me.
Why would you not want to feel? So you're not responsible for your actions?
Occasional drinking isn't a big deal. It's life. It's the people that go out and get pissed drunk twice every weekend, as if that's the main goal in their life (which is fine if it is, but the should stop trying to pass it off as something noble to do).
Well I get drunk in my house or at a friends house I spend the night at. I don't go and drive or drink so much I puke all over my buddies. I know my limits as to how much I can drink and not get puke drunk, and I never go over that limit. The feeling of not feeling is my way of dislodging from society. I know its not the healthiest way, but I enjoy it.
My guess: 13 year-old.
See? whats wrong with having a little non-harmful fun every now and then?
I find the drinking age in America very stupid. Germans and most Europeans can drink when there 16. They have celebrations that include mass amount of alcohol(Oktoberfest/St. Patricks Day/etc.). These events and laws seem totally normal and right to me, and i'm an American! I need to move to Europe, this place gives me a headache with all its stupid laws to get intoxicated. It's my body, no one should be able to control or set a law to deny what I can do to it. The By-Product of the puritanical madness agaisn't drinking and drugs, is that people do abuse it and "rebel". With that rebellion there is drunk driving(because public intoxication is illegal so no one wants to walk). It would just be better if there were no laws agaisn't any intoxication, with that comes education and responsibility-but a liberal society to no forshame these people. Some people ask me why such a smart person like me gets intoxicated(They think i'm smart, I am not egoing myself). I tell them my quote "Intellictuals who escape from reality, are not to be judged. The true injustice is that reality has escaped from being intellictual." Learn, Grow, Live- People....
Drinking can be good and bad at any age.
