It's better to try it in a safe environment than in the street.

I said no, but I've never had any desire to drink/try alcohol, so I'm not quite sure if my mom would let me if I wanted to.

My parents were baby boomers... Enough said. :-)

When I was 7. I begged my dad for a sip. ( thought it was a different kind of soda). He finally gave in. If AFV was on then, my reaction would have won the grand prize. NASTY STUFF!! To this day, I can't even pass by the beer in the grocery store without a shudder. Ughhh!!!!!

My dad used to send us road tripping with Lord Calvert when I was just 17. I would never do that to my kids!

It was in my Barbie glass though. We very seldom had alcohol in our home when my kids were growing up. Mostly wine for sauce.

My uncle, on the boat, on the Illinios river.

It was a frozen drink, and just a few sips. They weren't real heavyweights themselves when it came to alcohol.

I was allowed watered-down wine at around 12-13 during family events. It tasted like dishwater though.

I think it was a deterrent.

I was offered to have a sip of wine at holidays, but always declined. I don't want to drink, and don't want to get into a habit of doing it.

09/03/12 9:55 pm

Not yet, they don't drink. I'm not interested in it anyway. Beer smells like shit.

09/03/12 9:28 pm

They jut told me to NEVER drink & drive & check in every so often but other than that they knew I was gonna drink in HS but were fairly ok with it

I was allowed to sip from my parents beer if I wanted to when we ordered pizza. Sometimes I did, other times I wasn't in the mood. And I could have half a glass of red or white wine at Thanksgiving.

09/03/12 8:59 pm

I've tried vodka, beer, rum, and wine. Guess what? It all tasted like complete shit.

62% are so sad. I will not surprise the parents are permitting younger than 18 years old have over 10 tattoos on one body. YUCK!!!!!

Just to let me know what it tasted like.

My parents allowed me to taste any drink they had, be it beer, wine or mixed. On special occasions I was allowed my own if I wanted one. This removes the mystery. While my friends were binging in high school and college I would have a drink or two and be done.

09/03/12 5:56 pm

Here and there they would let me.

09/03/12 5:50 pm

My asshole father pushed a cigar in me when I was 9 -.- thank god I didn't smoke it.

I had to change my answer because I misunderstood question. The answer is no.

09/03/12 5:13 pm

Yes a couple times and I never abused alcohol and drink very rarely at 28. Never actually been drunk.

09/03/12 5:08 pm

When I had a cold coming yes - it was considered an old house remedy.

When I was little I always wanted to know what beer tasted like so I tried a little bit.
Then when I was 12 I accidentally drank some of my moms Rum and Coke, thinking that it was my Coke.
I've by accident had a Jello shot with alcohol too.
And now sometimes they let me try margaritas.
