Never too young to drink

In the state of Wisconsin (where i live), it is legal to drink as a minor as long as your parents say the 'okay'. So i can go to a bar with my dad and he can order me a beer. And how the law is written, the age does not matter. I can be 17, or a 5 year old, it doesn't matter.
My local news station did an undercover story on it. 7 out of the 10 bars they went to allowed the 13 year old to drink when the dad asked. One asked for proof that it was the fathers actull son. The other 3 bars did not serve the child beer.

So, what do you think? Should the law be tossed? Should it be written so that only say 15+ year olds can drink with a parents consent. Or is the law perfectly fine as is?

Most 15 year olds getting drunk....you tell me. I don't think there father's would give them too much, unless he's stupid. Or just wants his son to be a drunkard like him.

If parents give the okay, I don't see a problem with it. However, the parents should be present when the drinking is going on. You can't allow parents to go away for a weekend and let their kids throw a booze blowout and have something happen.

I basically think kids should be allowed to drink with their parents permission, but only in public. We don't want parents getting kids drunk and taking advantage of them, either, you know. Like at a birthday party that turns into a horrible drunken sleepover.

Sounds funny, but it's not.

I don't think children should be allowed to drink. It is bad and if the child gets addicted at a young age, it would get worse as they age. And then who knows how they would be as adults.

I hate to throw this into the mix, but there are certain religious reasons for drinking, too, along with other cultural reasons.

I don't think I ever wanna have alcohol.
Don't see why I should. I'm happy with Coke!
In Australia (or at least, MY part of it), there aren't many enforced laws about drinking. Usually, if you look around 15ish, that's good enough.

The other thing also is the amount of drinking that goes on in high school and the first couple years of college I really don't think its that big of a deal but I know the Urinal sentinel newpaper likes to make it that way. I find it funny how they run a 2 month long series on drinking then one of the days run an article in the cue section about holiday beers.
