Never get drunk in front of my kids but I will have an occasional beer or two while at home. I have 6 kids and no babysitters lol sometimes I just need a little me drink to calm my nerves.

This.

We keep a few bottles at the house. and yes we do drink around our 5 year old. Not to the point of getting drunk though.

Nope. I also don't like to drink when kids are around period. I kinda weirds me out being at a function where there are drinks and kids running around.

And by drink around your child I don't mean you get sh*tfaced

let's say you may get tipsy at most and you will not drive home


At big family gatherings there might be some beer around, but my relatives don't get drunk.  Alot of my relatives are pastors or elders at church so they know better.LOL

I like an occasional glass of wine after the kids go to bed.  I don't care to drink any alcohol around them.

I think alcholisim is a learned behavior - 


i had a friend back in college who was weird about drinking and i never knew why. like we'd be out and the rest of us would have a cocktail and she would pass. well one day she actually decided to drink, and when she started drinking, she didn't stop at one, it's almost like she couldn't stop at one. she kept tossing them back till she was pissy drunk. she told me later she does that every time she drinks, that's why she just passes most of the time. i felt bad for her because i just couldn't imagine. i drink but i hate the feeling of being drunk. once i feel a buzz i stop, drunk is just not a good feeling to me.

Never realized this was an issue until this thread. How very protestant.

You're right, it is a cultural thing. Didn't grow up around alcoholism or anything like that. But there would always be a bottle of something around. The children just knew not to touch it.
I'm not a hard liquor person but I enjoy my wine and cocktails.

Yes ma'am. There is pickny things and big people things and never the two shall meet. I never knew parents didnt drink around kids and that said practice was frowned upon till I came to BHM. Rum is a part of the culture, it's always around and has many uses i swear! Also and I say this all the time Jamaican teens dont scream, plot and scheme and carry on about rum and wanting to drink (our legal age is 18) like their American counterparts. Alcohol isn't on a pedestal for the kids outchere and we thankfully dont have the myriad of issues that come with it. Dont get me wrong kids still hide and drink and get drunk and all that jazz but it's like whatever. Smoking nowAngry

Even infants will get a tups of rum in warm milk (dont judge them y'all)
