This has been a recent discussion that has been going on with friends and I am curious what your opinions are about parents who drink, specifically regarding the scenarios below. Do you think any of these situations are okay? or terrible? or somewhere in between? and why?
1) Parent 1 is out for a few hours at night while parent 2 is at home with LO, with LO sleeping the whole time. Parent 2 drinks at home while LO is sleeping, to the point of getting somewhat drunk.
2) Both parents are home together and are drinking while LO sleeps, to the point that they get somewhat drunk.
3) Family has a get-together/party at their home where alcohol is present. After LO goes to bed, some other family and friends remain and parents stay up drinking with them to the point of getting drunk.
4) A single parent has a babysitter for a night and goes out with friends to the bars/clubs and is drunk when he/she gets home (but LO is sleeping) and the babysitter leaves, so it is just that parent and LO in the home after that.
Are any of the scenarios okay? Or wrong? In your opinion?
