Social Dilemma-Is It Okay to Get Drunk with Your Kid On Her 21st Birthday?

Today's social dilemma asks the question, does this make you a bad mom? Our email came from Brooke, and this is what she wrote: Hi Jaime, A few days ago my daughter celebrated her 21st birthday and with everything going on in the world right now, she said that what she wanted to do was 1. legally buy her first drink 2. drink. 3. Take pictures.So what did we do? After a much needed nap, I woke her up. We went and took pictures, took her to her fave gourmet burger joint so she could buy her first drink (they only had white claw and beer on tap so the guy, who was obviously flirting made her a white claw and added cherry syrup). Then we went home where we proceeded to have buzzballs (15% alcohol in a little can), and she had 5 different shots (from the mini alcohol bottles). After it was all done, I made her drink water and take ibuprofen, placed a bucket by her bed and tucked her in. When I told some friends about this, they couldn't believe that I would do something so irresponsible. That was their word, not mine. I thought I was doing something nice to help my daughter celebrate her birthday in a controlled environment, with me there to take care of her. They thought that was a bad mom move. So I thought I would see if this is a question you could ask. Am I a bad mom because I helped my 21 y.o. get drunk? Thanks Jaime. Stay safe ~ Brooke. This is certainly not the way I spent my 21st birthday..LOL. But I don't think it was a bad mom thing to do. I think in the midst of a crazy world right now, she gave her daughter exactly what she wanted and made sure she stayed safe doing it. But that's what I think. What about you? Was Brooke irresponsible helping her daughter get drunk on her 21st birthday, or was it okay? Let me know what you think on the TRY Facebook page.
