    Printing out the article. I'm going to use it in a reading comprehension lesson with my middle-schoolers tomorrow! I'll let you know what my students think of it.

    All those without sin - in this case drinking before they were old enough - cast the first ad. Leaves me out.

    Reminds me the other day we all got together for mom's 80 something birthday and when you grew up in a large, poor family the stories start us all laughing till tears come, my brother reminded me of how I came home drunk once and tried my darnedest to walk up the steps straight, needless to say I didn't make it as my father beat the hell out me, I can't say I felt a thing but had he taken my bike that would have bothered me.

    Let me edit this one more time. Had that been my wife or I we would have left said nothing then but talked later about drinking and driving. Once when we were looking for a blank vcr tape we came across porn our boys has procured, never said a word and guess what they grew up fine. That lady in my opinion did wrong by getting so carried away.

    No offense, and I mean this in the nicest possible way, really, but.. Are you out of your freaking mind??

    Underage kids, just got license and car, booze bottles under SEAT OF CAR, and you'd do nothing, and think this woman overreacted?

    What the hell's wrong with you?

    Porn and illegal activities wherein multiple people could lose thier lives are two totally different things.

    I think the mother went way OTT. Drinking age is 18 down here. I mean, c'mon peps - hands up on this board who NEVER had a drink until they were 20/21? Honestly?

    No offense taken, since we raised two fine men who are married and doing well, and I come from an enormous family where I can see the results of discipline versus a more reasoned or balanced approach I think she went too far. If that boy respected her, words would have sufficed. We all drank young, no big sin.

    Wasn't the drinking that was the problem. We all drank. The problem was that the kid and his friends were drinking in the car, IMO.

    So, if they were your kid, and his friend, and they got pulled over and fined for reckless driving, and underage drinking, and you're the one that got slapped with the fine, you'd just shrug it off and say nothing?

    Or, would it suddenly become a problem only if they got caught?
