No alcohol should be aloud at any children birthday parties. That is their day of celebriting.

Olivia - I wasn't being negative - merely stating that a blanket statement like that is bound to open up a can of worms. It would have been better worded as a question, such as "What are peoples opinions on having alcohol at childrens birthday parties?"
Thats what these forums are - a safe place to express your opinion - not preach.

I don't see why people see the need to put negative comments on here. I am the same and don't see a need to have alcohol at a child's party. It is for the child and parents and adults can wait the couple hours the party lasts to have a drink. It is not an adult celebration, there is no need for alcohol. Not even so much for the being alert part, but because there is just no point in the adult needing to drink when this is the child's day. But many parents are different and don't see an issue with it. I have seen it at a bday parties, but it was when there was regular drinking around the child anyway. Which is crazy to me anyways.

Think you are preaching a bit there hun! - it wont stop Princess going off to university and becoming a Doctor - on the other hand she wont end up a crack whore! Our children are the future, regardless if daddy has a beer around the BBQ with Uncle Ed
Suggest you find another forum to preach in

I personally think that depends on the age of the child, the parents, how responsible they are, what they are drinking.
I really don't think its your place to say, you are only going to start an argument here as the last post was closed... did you open this just to get your opinion on a closed topic?
I had alcohol at my daughters Birthday party. If a child were to get hurt at the party it would be regardless if there was alcohol there or not. As a parent I didn't drink myself stupid, I was fully capable to handle any situation that might arise at her party. Alcohol might not be welcome at your kids partys but at mine its BYOB.
