I was very surprised to find that in the state I currently live in, it is not illegal for a minor to drink in their own home. Minors may possess one low-point beer if they are under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian. While the law seems to say that the parent cannot buy it directly for the child, it does say that a minor may purchase it him-herself under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian. The one rule does seem in direct conflict with the rule that says a minor can have alcohol in a private setting without parental consent. I think it's .02 blood alcohol limits for minors who drive. I have no idea how much alcohol it takes to reach, well, any level so no idea how much that might be. Adults are considered DUI with a .08 But my point...it's legal here for a kid to have a beer with what they call a low alcohol content. It's still alcoholic. Again, FOR THOSE WHO DRINK! Would you have a problem with giving your kid a drink in the privacy of your own home? Would you allow your child to "try" a few sips of alcohol in the hopes that they'd think it was nasty and not want to try it again, or so that they'd get that curiosity out of their system while under your supervision rather than trying it with someone who may be untrustworthy or may encourage them to keep going even if they didn't like it? Again, this is for those that do not think a social drink here and there is wrong, and since alcohol is legal once you're 21, please don't try comparing it to anything illegal. If you live in a state where it is not legal for a minor to drink, then answer from the mindset of "if it was legal here then I would/would not, etc..
