  1. Letting parents make a decision with their kids on how and when to drink will go a long way to fixing the social stigma and problems with underage drinking. It is comical that we can’t even consider letting parents help kids learn how to drink and enjoy a beer or cocktail without somebody editorializing about the ills of drinking. So many of the problems are caused by the laws themselves and the vague, random nature of enforcement. This is why kids binge drink, hide in basements and cars and over indulge instead of leaning to sip, contemplate and enjoy. There is no right answer, but if you can vote, fight or go off to college, you should be able to buy a beer. Otherwise you create a massive population of “law breakers” with no understanding of proper social manners.
