I'm watching Oprah's show and they're discussing how parents allow parties in their houses where drinking is allowed even though all of these kids are underage. This one lady says her son who is 18 is going to serve in the Marines but isn't allowed by law to drink, she says it's hypocritical? What the 'f'?!!! I'm not aware of any marines or military that serve in war while under the influence of alcohol. What are your thoughts on under-age drinking? Should parents let there be parties in their houses where drinking is allowed or let their under-age teens go to parties where alcohol will be served? About 11 million teens are drinking and majority start at the age of 12. Yet the statistics of deaths amongst teens are on the uprise due to alcohol consumption.
