Excuse me, but I have my reasons for it. My mom my whole life drank in front of me and in our home also, even when I told her it really hurt me and bothered me, and she didn't even care. Which is why I choose not to drink in front of my child; it would make me very uncomfortable if I did.
It is not an "American attitude", it's my personal preference
not to drink in front of my child.
Are you implying that just because I don't drink in my home that my DS has a good chance of going off to college and binging? Ridiculous. I will teach him what he needs to know about alcohol.
