It is I WhyWhyWhy --- 4 years ago -

How do you know it's underage drinking? How old is the boy really? Do you really even know? 

Dorothy Parker --- 4 years ago -

I don't buy this story. Who puts this much info on KU? Are these people not in Kingwood? You have zero concern about them or someone they know, seeing this thread? Besides that, what restaurant allows a teen to be served alcohol?

I call BS on this entire thread. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 4 years ago -

Yep. There is some other agenda here. 

Humbletexan1 --- 4 years ago -

Good point Dorothy Parker!

Just went back and read whole thread. Op first says daughter is 17 and then posts she is not 17 yet. Your 16 yr old should not be dating an 18 yr. old especially one who is allowed to drink several beers. Do you want your daughter to die in an auto accident? You said yourself he and his parents drink more than the Irish. Be a responsible parent and put your foot down immediately. You are the adult and she is a child. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 4 years ago -

My instincts are going with the whole thing smells fishy.

But we needed the variety. Lol

Guys believe it or not other cultures handle drinking differently. An 18 year old drinking is pretty much the norm in any other place around the world. The family seems great, just because their heritage is not what we're used to doesn't instantly make them bad people. I guarantee that your kids drink much more than you would expect and then proceed to drive home. It sounds like the family is trying to blend into society to me.

I think a restaurant is allowed to serve a teen alcohol if the parent is present. But I agree with you, this sounds fishy.

First of all, if my kid was dating someone whose parent's felt comfortable ordering their kid a beer in my presence on our first meeting, I would be appalled. That has nothing to do with being a gypsy or not. They didn't just crawl out from under a rock. They would know that wasn't going to make a great first impression no matter what they believe.

So my first question to them would be "do you serve underage kids alcohol in your home?" Because right there would be a deal breaker.

The OP said they drank a lot. You can't judge someone's blood alcohol by how they hold their liquor. Many drunks that kill people on the roads were not slurring their words or acting drunk. They are still impaired. So, did they get behind the wheel of the car and drive after consuming all those drinks? I already know the answer.

It matters not what culture someone is from. They do not sound like they have good judgement, at least where drinking is concerned. I am not buying any of this story.

That's true. But they live HERE. Hence, they need to live by these laws.

It's not healthy to encourage minors to drink, here or anywhere else.

Sath's questions and concerns are completely legitimate. It's his daughter, for crying out loud!!

In Texas children can drink if their parents buy them the alcohol. Most of the reason kids go out and get wasted all the time around Kingwood is because they can only get alcohol a very small amount of the time. I let my kids drink around me because it teaches them the effects of alcohol in a controlled environment. As compared to the teenagers that go out and get plastered around at least one 21+ year old that is most likely a pedophile and/or a very unsafe place like the woods or something. Instead of teaching kids to be afraid of something you should teach your kids to respect the said item and learn to use it in moderation. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 4 years ago -

you should probably provide them with drugs, too, so they know how it feels to get high, rather than let them find out on their own- 

Bellarue --- 4 years ago -

Let me put it nicely. I have never met a gypsy I would trust and don't even get me started with them being around my children.

You are the parent. Go with your gut.

I would run and run fast away from these people.

Unbelievable 

creativename --- 4 years ago -

Unbelievable?

Unbelievable as compared to what? Sheltering your kid from the world? There is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking as long as you can control yourself. I hope you don't plan on sending your kids to college because the will go crazy once they get there.
