    Culturally, I think that is acceptable. I wouldn't be backing up a parent who took their child on a pub crawl with the intent of getting smashed though.
    DD got to go on a wine tour of the Barossa at 18mths...

    And she clearly wasn't alone, as pretty much all the wineries had play areas for the kids!

    Btw - I apologise for the having fun without coffee remark. I know that was extreme, and I didn't post a trigger warning. I am very sorry if it caused any of the more caffeinated among us to become confused, disorientated, or scared. I didn't mean it.

    Just to continue to de-rail. DS1 was 3 when we took him on a week long winery tour or Margaret River.
    One of our best memories and holidays.
    *sigh* back when we had one child and money... Good times..

    We can and do. We often meet at the local pool and don't drink there. Every Friday mums and I meet for coffee. Just depends really. I don't drink while pregnant and still have good times. Some chose to have alcohol and some don't is all.

    I have been to lots of school fetes with booze on offer..I was nannying so didn't partake, and all of the adults were civilised and well behaved. Some of them just stuck in that little corner until their OH dragged them out and made them go home. Seriously, I don't see it as a big issue. People can go without alcohol, but we're adults..do we really have to?

    My DD goes to a Catholic school and they LOVE alcohol!!! There was even champagne at a 'celebrate our mums' morning the school put on!!!

    If you want to find a school that doesn't serve alcohol, then don't choose a catholic school lol!

    * says she who got blotto with the teachers & parents at school last week*
