I'm not a parent but my friend lets her daughter drink as long as they don't go anywhere but also let her friend drink. Someone she hadn't met before and doesn't know the parents. My friend and her cousins told her she shouldn't especially not knowing her parents. She doesn't think it's a big deal.

Your friend must not have any common sense. If the girl gets in an accident or gets into a confrontation with a cop the daughter may spill the beans.

Right but she thinks ok because the girl was staying over. I still think it's a bad call because she isn't her kid.

Bad call can't let other people's kids drink in your home. It is illegal.

My family isn't from here so many of them will let their teens have a drink. But they wouldn't let an outsider do it.

NO. That is beyond wrong and is actually a crime. Giving your own older teenager some supervised access to alcohol is not illegal in most states, but giving it to someone else's kid is taking it too far.

Absolutely not! In addition to what Meyerland said, if the other child got in an accident or had some other problem d/t alcohol consumed at your friend's home, your friend would be held responsible. Kids can promise not to leave, and get a whim to do just that.

Oh heck no. Why would she let minor children do things that are illegal in her house?

It's called bad parenting--for 100's of reasons.

NO! IMO, further comment is not required.
