    Great idea, but you couldn't police it.

    i also agree with pinkvanillaz

    I was aloud the 1 shandie from the age of 16 at family functions bbqs ect,but by then i was out every weekend with friends drinking, so 1 shandie was nothing really to me

    If my child at 12/13 or younger asked for a sip to try taste the answer would deff be a no,but if they were 16 & older i wouldnt see a problem with them having a shandie 50/50 beer to lemonade ratio on the odd ocasion but it wouldnt be a everyday thing nor would it be til there at the point they cant walk & absouloutley p!ssed

    i think its BS personally.

    Australia is a society that is centered around alcohol...and THAT is where the alcoholism in our 'youth' is coming from.
    Going to a football/cricket game? have you seen all the ads for beer and other drinks around the outside?

    the only way to combat the problem is education, not penalization.
    And education doesn't mean 'do not drink until your 18 and then do it responsibly' because that's never going to work.

    Whereas parents who explain all the dangers behind alcohol, but show their children that small quantities are ok, and set that precendent for their children, are far less likely to have children who wait till they're 18 and start binge drinking.

    ETA: and yes, we were given small amounts of alcohol (either a sip of mums wine, or she'd put a tsp of wine into a glass of water ).
