As I've noted here before, I'm a bit of a fanatic when it comes to neo-temperance. I believe that the anti-alcohol people like those who belong to MADD aren't solving a problem. They ARE the problem. We Americans demonize alcohol and infantilize drinking. We have only ourselves to blame for "problems" like "underage drinking" and "binge drinking."
So I'm astounded that editors at a mainstream magazine like Time had the balls to run this article. Astounded. Hey, maybe there's hope! And in response to the question posed by the article's author: Yes. You SHOULD drink with your kids. (For other posts on this topic, look under "rational drinking" in the categories box.)
