    I have two younger kids but we also have two teens and quite honestly if I waited until they were in bed (the teens that is) sometimes I would have to wait until midnight

    I drink responsibly (glass of wine quite often while I am cooking and one or two after that but not every night) and think it's a good thing to model responsible drinking in front of my teens.

    (Well that's my story and I am sticking to it)

    I might sometimes have a drink while prepping dinner but that's pretty rare. I just don't drink a whole lot. And it's only ever the one. I never drink more than 2 drinks in a sitting so it's not like I'm getting drunk

    If it's just 1 and you don't need to drive go for it! 4:00pm is my it's okay to have a drink time if I'm not planning on driving. I've been known to have a cheeky cider at 4pm in the summer!

    I don't drink, but I wouldn't incase I needed to drive my child somewhere unexpectedly...but that's because I drink so little I feel the effects after one drink and wouldn't drive anywhere. I know lots of people who's children have had accidents requiring to be checked over in hospital towards the end of the day.

    On a Friday I would have an occasional cider with the neighbors in the street. Don't see any problem with it!

    Nothing wrong with it. We don't drink much, but if I feel like one, I will have one when cooking dinner. I actually think it's good to drink in front of your kids. Not talking about getting drunk or being completely out of it - that is never a good thing in front of kids. I'm talking about having 1-2 drinks. Showing them how to drink responsibly from an early age is good in my opinion.

    I don't, but only because I'm alone and on my P2s, so if I needed to drive I wouldn't be able to.

    I certainly wouldn't change anyone who did though :-)

    I never did have that drink!

    But today is my birthday so perhaps I should go wild.
