I agree to a lot of what you are saying, but don't you think it is important to tell children why alcohol should not be consumed? Also, if it is consumed occasionally by the parent even before the child, it is essential that the child be told about the pros and cons of drinking. This will ensure that the child does not try these things secretively.
@Anonymous Correct. Children should be educated about the harmful effects of alcohol and elders also should follow their own advice..like they say practice what you preach. True.
Consumption of Alchohol is not good for health as well as reputation........it effects the childs psychology......
Consumption of alcohol can be very harmful and your child can also hit effected by drinking so one should not drink alchohil
I want to say that children must be look after in a right way .he or she should far away from this types of activities .if parents or only father used to drink or smoking habit so he must not use infront of their children it's a harmful effects on their mind so be aware of this activities because we r Indian not western cultural heritage mind be good and safe always
Children are constantly watching everything around and subconsciously and consciously learning a lot from their families and environment. I think drinking alcohol in the presence of children or bringing it home should not happen. It will definitely impact their drinking decisions later. Parents want to keep children away from smoking, drinking, drugs and what not but if they are doing it themselves, especially in front of them, it sends a wrong signal that it's Ok to do it. So watching yourselves and your behavior in front of children becomes utmost important for their well being.
What they learn in childhood stays with them forever most of the times. It won't be difficult for them to say No later when friends offer. For instance, there was a small child of about 6 yrs in a party and he was very particular about not eating garlic, onions and meat (there are many who don't as we know). He said they just don't eat and he would eat only what he is allowed to as per what they follow at home. Surely he will continue this into his adulthood and later teach it to his children. So it's not just about willpower. Just like this, if parents follow what they say and set clear examples, children will follow.
Some people drink as a social norm or at office parties or for whatever reasons but they should definitely avoid it in front of their children.
