"and there will be something a bit stronger for the grown ups"
Seriously? You think that by pointing out that you are going to have alcohol all parents are going to suddenly think
"Wow! What a great idea, let's go there they have alcohol!"
Okay, so I know that I don't drink alcohol at all and that I might be the odd one out here, but I don't understand when having access to alcohol at a family event was such an important highlight. Surely if you are taking your family out for the day you don't need alcohol to get you through it and if you do then doesn't that say a lot more about you than it does your family?
I'm not saying that we shouldn't drink in front of our children, (I used to drink a diluted glass of wine with my Sunday Roast when I was little) but I am wondering if the rise in the number of younger drinkers and the rise in the amount of binge drinkers in the world is because of environmental factors such as seeing parents and other adults drinking at every possible occasion?
What do you think, have I got it all wrong? Or just when did alcohol become a criteria in deciding what to do with your family?
