This is kinda of a spin off from my "ever been in trouble" thread but one I feel is something that impacts everyone. I remember when I was 16 or 17 (about the time I was in sixth form in school) I remember going to the pub on a friday night, it was the thing to do, the place to be seen and from what I can remember neither of my parents objected as long as I didn't get into trouble, I know I never deceived my parents about my where abouts but should I and my parents have been punished in hindsight? In the eyes of law what I and my parents were doing is against the law obviously and I should have been refused entry or being served but do you think there is a portion of society that turns a blind eye in a "we all did when we were young" sort of an attitude? If you are a parent would you want your kids to drink in a responsible way so as to respect alcohol or would it be strictly no alcohol until legal age?
