7. Texas ia a bit more sensible....

Thanks to our German settlers I guess.

I gave my daughter increasing strength levels of alcohol at special dinners and occasions. On her 18th birthday I took her out for her first full strength beer. The results....I never had to worry about her in her teens. She would usually be the designated driver for her friends. When she was able to drive, I made her promise to give me a call if she became too drunk to drive. I promised that I would never yell or punish her for being human. I did not want her to have an accident or worse yet make a poor choice or have someone assault her. This point was brought home when a high school student she knew was gang raped after having too much to drink while out with someone she thought was her 'friend'.
