An article was published from a guest columnist discussing the option of hosting an underage party where alcohol would be available. The parents noted minors would find a way to drink anyway, thus making alcohol available should be a problem. As long as the parents received consent from other parents, they were curious if they could get in trouble.
In turn, the columnist wrote back stating: “To put it bluntly, you can go to jail if you host this party.”
“First, there is nothing that is illegal about letting your own children consume alcohol, so long as they do it in your presence, and aren’t drinking to the point of it causing a health risk. The problem for you arises when you allow other underage persons to consume alcohol at your house.”
