Are you kidding me?? This is EXCELLENT parenting. Remember the guy who gets the quarter in the cup is NOT the guy they pick up off the floor at the end of the night!!! Did you teach him all the secret rules too? No "drink, drank, drunk"; no pointing; no names; etc.? We had so many rules that is was nearly impossible to not get smashed. Oh yeah, I guess that was the whole point.


That sounds like the kind of parent I am! Bad? Yes... Good? Yes also!


Second the comment about teaching him how to AVOID getting wasted! You're a practical Mum.

Manic Mommy

Nah, you're the cool mom. But you're still The Mom. Nice balancing act.


I agree...you are one of the "cool" moms. And in quarters, we always played that you could only point with your elbows!!
My 10-year-old son was quite impressed with me last weekend when I flipped a beer cap (like I was snapping my fingers!) across the room...ah, the things you learn in college!! and again, if your drunk, you can't do stuff like that!!

Um... those two aren't the same thing? :)

Hee hee!


A mom's job as teacher is never over, is it? It is especialy up to us moms to teach the "practical" things in life.


Did you play drunk ping-pong, too? jk
You're probably okay. Just don't leave any more babies on the car hood!
In all seriousness, it is better to be approachable as a parent than to be self-righteous and hypocritical.

Mrs. G.

Well, it is important that our children move on to higher education, er, prepared for all the new situations they will encounter.

Also, as a homeschooler, I think a tutorial on quarters might fall under the curriculum category of "physical education" or "life skills"


It's all about the social studies Jenn!! You are only giving him an "edge". Not a bad parent at all!!


you are a loving mom....love is all that matters...:)
it was nice reading your post,thanks for sharing:)

Your step sister isn't by any chance named Tracey (with a 10 year old son and 20 year old step daughter)? Because that would be spooky. Email me if you don't want to answer here. Or don't. LOL!
