WAB Debate: Should you drink in front of children?

Thursday July 13 2017

THE NSPCC has warned parents to be aware of how drunk they are in front of children - or they could end up facing a charge of neglect.

The child protection charity says that parents need to be responsible as they enjoy themselves at BBQs and sporting events this summer.

A spokesperson said: "Nobody is saying 'don't enjoy yourselves,' but just use common sense when looking after children.

"Drink in moderation and always make sure you are in control."

The law states that if a parent is so drunk they can't look after their kids properly, they could be charged with neglect.

Do you drink in front of your children? Or do you think it's better to avoid it altogether?
