My oldest girl is 16 shortly and started to go to parties. No great issue there, she and her friends are fairly sensible and the one time there was a little trouble, they immediately left (and I always pick her up and drop her off)
My question... I know there's alcohol at the parties. Kiera never takes any but she will have some. Do I send her with some very low alcohol alcopop or cider so I can be sure she's not at the mercy of someone else's potentially stronger concoction? While I don't want to condone underage drinking and it doesn't feel right buying cider for my girl, I have to be realistic that it does happen at the parties and I'd prefer to know what's in her glass....
God I hate these dilemmas. What do you suggest?
