I Need to Vent

My mom knows alcoholism runs on both sides of the family, but she is not only letting my sister get away with drinking underage (the brat turned 18 last month), but is telling her how to get away with having it in her car. Her response when I said she was being irresponsible?
"They're going to drink, anyway, so no point in trying to stop them."
She's also going to deny that princess and her friends got the wine coolers from our fridge, so there's that as well...

Unfortunately what your mother said is true. If a kid wants to drink/smoke/do drugs/have sex, they're going to find a way to do it. You can talk to them until you're you're blue in the face, but they'll make their own decisions regardless. If they really want to do something, nothing is going to stop them. Doesn't mean you have to condone it. Just got to do what any decent guardian would want for their kid/brother/sister, etc. Tell them the consequences and wait and see what they're going to go for.

The twit is already fully aware of the consequences, she even had to call the police because one of her friends flipped his truck while driving drunk, also while underage, just a couple months ago. [@465054,EdwardFurlongFan95]

[@5488,ScrewThisImDone] That's unfortunate. 😞

[@5488,ScrewThisImDone] I understand fears of drunk driving very well because my dad and my stepbrothers mother were nearly killed by a drunk woman on St. Patrick's Day this year. They both said it was the worse car accident they had ever been in, and they had been in many.

I din't think you will win against your Mom.. Id concentrate on your sister as that's where the danger lies .. Good luck

[@5488,ScrewThisImDone] it's a hard position you're in..

But at least I can't be blamed for any of it, unless my sister decides she wants me to...[@516864,ozgirl512]

[@5488,ScrewThisImDone] it's not about blame.. Sometimes for despite your best efforts, people aren't going to listen or change... You tried... That's all you can do

My father is an alcoholic, and at least two of my mom's brothers are, too. I can't remember if my dad's brother is one, too, or not.

Princess already witnessed one of her friends flipping his truck because he was drunk, he almost killed somebody. [@10925,waleskinder]
