Its called being a teenager if she doesn't learn about it know it might be worse in the future. Its completely normal to drink at parties and if she is telling you about it I very much doubt it would get out of hand. At least she knows to drink in moderation obviously you have taught her well. My parents tried everything to stop me from drinking nothing would work. It was just something I had to grow out of by myself. Good luck with this problem but it sounds to me like you have a pretty normal teenager congrats they don't happen very often.

No, youre not old fashioned. Youre worried, and thats understandable. Explain that drinking may get out of hand. She has to understand the dangers. I think you should tell her that you will let her drink once she turns 21, but shes too young to drink now. TALK to her, dont PREACH.

maybe u tried to stop her by telling her society does not approve etc. that wont work because her society is different from yours. instead, explain it from a health point of view. tell her stories about alcoholics. try and scare her off.

At least your daughter confided in you and told you that she drinks. Show her that you trust her by allowing her, and maybe ask her to stick to a limit of one drink at a party. Many other teenagers drink on the sly and thier parents never know that they drink!
