I hope alot of Coudersport parents, especially those that have "popular" kids, watch this. Go on your kids's MySpace sometime and see all of the kids talking about getting drunk!

Do you think it is only Coudersport kids in this county getting drunk????

Kids everywhere are getting drunk...if the kids are going to drink they should do it at a parents home where someone resposible will be there to take the keys so they don't get drunk and drive like home everyone did when I was in school.....

This isn't something new people!! I grew up in Coudy in the 70-80's era and we drank while still in high school. It wasn't as hard to get someone to buy beer for us back then, but kids will be kids. I'm not saying that this isn't bad and that I condone it, but be realistic...it's still going to happen. If parents actually think that their kids don't try drinking, smoking, and having sex, then they need to wake up. A teenager is at one of the most curious times of life and they are under a lot of peer pressure.

The parents who host their own parties and who keep an eye on their children are the smart ones. Some kids are going to drink no matter what. I'd much rather see my kids get a little drunk in a controlled environment than to get falling down drunk on their own and THEN start making bad decisions.

If anyone has every asked the question, "why are my kids so messed up?" the answer would be that they have the ideas and views of posters 3, 4 & 5.

Im hoping the posters of 3,4, and 5 are teenagers and not parents... Wake up people it is against the law to supply alcohol to minors and if you do I hope you are prosecuted...

What stupid parents are out there. I guess if their kids want to try drugs, it would be ok with dummies parents if the kids did it at home. Wonder where the problems start? At home with dumb parents

Sounds to me like 4-5-6- are still in touch with the real world.The rest of you either never raised any kids or think yours are little angels and wouldn't possible do such things.Can't put them in a bubble,cause sooner or later they have to come out and face the REAL world!You can control things the best you can,but you can't stop it.Not back in the day ,now, or ever.

Great comeback...Way to lay out a responsible argument to support your view.Not hard to see who the dumbass under a rock is here!You showed you can count in the 1 to 10 range,got anything a little more substancial?

You’re right poster @5:15 I should have ignored the fact that you were most likely inebriated when you wrote the post @11:30. However, I simply called out the obvious. Would you like me to argue with you how your thought process in thinking that as long as our kids drink at home and are monitored by adults is insanely stupid. This is the lazy way out for any parent. The fact is that the earlier a youth starts to drink alcohol the more likely they are to move a long to something else. Ever heard of heroine, oxy, and lets not forget the prescription meds that have overwhelmed this county by controlling our young people. So along with explaining to you that I can count, I should have explained that I am also educated enough to know that your ideas are one of the major contributors in what is KILLING our kids.

And because your first conclusion was to let us all know that we are stupid if we don’t know that our kids try alcohol, I have to agree. However, rather than you, I will be the first to put a boot up my kids rear end, unlike you who be the one popping the tap off the keg.

Through your drunken haze, please read carefully, count in order, and find whatever argument you can conjure up that supports the idea that ALLOWING kids to drink is at all rational.

I have to wonder, if you would give your name would it be clear to me why you think the way you do. Have you ever been in trouble with the law, have your kids?? Was it ummm...alcohol related???

Sorry but mine are all grown up.Honor students,Dean's list,great athletes,sound jobs with a brite future.No problems with the law,nor have I.Oh and by the way ,I don't drink.I gave you an opinion from experience.What is yours based on?I also never said anyone should provide anything to anybody.What I said was that you can't keep your children in a bubble,and if they are experimenting,better under supervision than out in the street.Put a "boot" up your 18 year olds butt and they will likely leave you wondering where they are and what they are doing.Good Plan!!!

Congrats on your children’s success. Sounds like we are separated by a few years, but I will be happy to post my experience.

I grew up in a County here in PA. I had friends who had parents with a similar idea...as long as they are doing it under supervision. I have seen what the outcome of that is. I’m not going to list each sob story, but I wonder if they had a “boot up their rear,” rather than free rein would some of them have turned out different, Maybe of few of them might still be alive.

I too graduated from college. Trust me, I had a “good time.” However, while I was at my parents home, I gave them the respect that I was raised to give them.

I have two young children, and I know that they will experiment. Your suggestion that it’s “keeping them in a bubble,” because I would rather them drink on the streets rather than at home is nauseating to me. Allowing something illegal to go on with them as long as it is under supervision is stupid. Allowing anything that could harm them, lead them down a much worse path, because they are “under supervision,” is disgusting.

It is insane though that if your children turned out so well and you yourself don’t drink, why in the world would you spend your time on this article. Your defending it being in a controlled environment, yet where is your “experience” that it’s worked??? Is that what you let your kids do when they were in school?? If so, glad it worked for you, if not, go pick another topic that you do have “experience” in!

So, let’s let it lie. I think that we are on two different wave lengths here.

I think you are talking about childern,while I am talking about young adults.Never said my kids didn't drink,as do most teens at some point.sure was glad to have them give their keys to someone and stay put.As a result,when they got out on their own they already knew how to do it responsibly.I was also able to talk with them about it ,as they had no fear of a boot ,when what they needed was a little guidance.

Anonymous said...

Do you read what you write??

What guidance are you giving by acknowledging to your kids that breaking the law is okay??? Yes, they will do that, but by all accounts many would argue that what you approved of and allowed to happen in some forms is child abuse. What gives you the right to let your children believe that disobeying the law is fine. How you can be so appalled by a “boot in their rear,” statement (which is a figure of speech) and then proceed to justify criminal behavior, and glorify it as if it’s good parenting. Any law enforcement or CYS worker would have been on you like bees to honey.

I’m not fooled by you. Your goal was to be the “cool” parent. I’m not impressed!

I think that you are the one in need of a “little guidance,” and most importantly that “boot up the rear!”

Poster @ 4:32. If your children did in fact turn out as you say, you should feel blessed. From the sounds of it, it could have been just the opposite.

Anonymous said...

Yup,back to name calling and thinking we are talking about children.Can only guess you are not much more than a young adult yourself,with alot to learn.Bring the boot and I will show you where I can place it.

“Bring the boot and I will show you where I can place it.” Who’s the adult here??

That the education you say your children had, you didn’t get so much of.
I never called you a name, and can only laugh that you would suggest that I have a lot to learn. What? From you?? You have to guess that I’m a young adult??? I told you that I was genius?
I am way above you right now and feel no remorse in saying that....way above. You are a drunk, liar and a bad parent.
How’s that for name calling??
Toss back a shot for me Superstar....
