Do you think it's okay to take your underage child into a bar to listen to the music?
Your child, you pick the "bar"..............
some bars are simply small businesses.......serving burgers and fries,
some serve "dancers" and drugs.........
I did, tell my daughters ( 3), tell me what you think you want to drink......and I will buy it, and you can drink it at home..under my watchful and protective eye.........or else, you will be presented with a choice at some gathering and have NO clue........not only to what you do or do not like, but not even to how it will effect you and your senses.
Who else, has the best interests of your child at heart?
Teach them at home..........or let them learn it the hard way..........( not that I promote letting kids go wild and rampant, I do not), but no one else will risk their own reputation or life to protect them.....
This happened in their teens.........not their preschool years.........be responsible!
It is YOUR child................you decide.
Thank you Onegoodwoman
For your answer. I have three kids, two of which are already drinking age, but the reason I ask this question is because my youngest (15) is a musician and in a band, so she is already use to a few bar type venues but I just wanted to know what people thought of people who bring their child into a bar.
I think it depends on the bar. I've done it before for neighborhood bar/restaurant type places.
I think its okay. (As if we can stop them if they go in bars without our knowledge), but I highly suggest that before that happens, at least we can give them the full initial knowledge of what they can expect to see there, whats wrong and right about that place, and how to behave appropriately. You know, its often much better that children get their initial knowledge about things right from their parents. at least they know what their parents have to say about these things.
It depends on the bar, if it is smoke-filled dive, full of unsavory characters, cussing and obvious illegal activity, then of course not. But, I used to take my kids to places like TGI Fridays all of the time, and it's ok.
A bar and grill kind of place where other family and friends are eating would probably okay. But as far a lounge style bar, No, never! Children do not need to be subjected to adult situations before their time. Just spring for a sitter and pizza delivery!
I believe it depends on the atmosphere bar, (good family eating establishment or a fight every night type joint. I also believe it depends on how responsible the parents are. Are the parents going to be drunk at the bar while the child is sitting alone or are they going to sit together away from the bar and enjoy a meal?
My dad took me to bars when I was 9, 10, 11 years old and so on. We went to bars where they had Go - Go Dancers. Some used to get a little vulgar while others just danced a little provocative. My dad and I sat together. I would have soda while he drank beer. We would have food also. Only a few people on occasion would complain that I was in the bar while the girls would dance. They didn't care that I was in the bar with my dad, but some of the girls didn't go as far as they would have if I would not have been there. The point is, my dad was responsible enough to take me out of the bar if things would start getting rough, or vulgar or just not suitable for a young boy. Right or wrong is subjective. My father never allowed me to be hurt, I wasn't drinking any alcohol, and he thought it was our way of bonding. Was it wrong? I don't think so. I turned out ok. I was never in trouble with the law, I am not an alcoholic, I am not a sex offender or anything else that you might suspect will turn a child into by going into a bar. Did it piss people off? Absolutely it did! Back then we were raised a little different. Both parents were still together and we learned values from both, good or bad; but that is what makes a person grow and become responsible in life.
