So if I go to a concert in a large arena or stadium and my parents buy me a alcoholic drink what is stopping me from underage drinking. I mean they can’t exactly ID me in the middle of a concert can they?. Also id be blending into a crowd and so they wouldn’t be able to see it. Not planning on doing this by the way if I go to a concert or event I want to be at my most attentive and absorbing every moment which means drinking isn’t something I’d do

Yeah they wouldn’t notice. Drinking at home from the age of 5 is legal in the UK so I don’t see why it would even be a big deal as long as you weren’t allowed much away from home. It isn’t as if most people that get drunk are going to be responsible and not cause some issue or other.

Oh thanks. My parents said that at a music festival in our area (not family friendly but like teenagers/parents together friendly) that they’d buy me a drink if I wanted next year if anyone we like is coming

You sound sensible enough to not overdo it even if you did it, have fun.

I would be drinking a single beer max throughout the entire event not binge drinking so I wouldn’t be overdoing it

Legally you shouldn’t so best to avoid it, but realistically I would think it wouldn’t be noticed. Still if you don’t want much then you won’t be bothered by not having.

Something that’s confusing me about this is that a lot of people would say it’s wrong to buy a teen a beer at a event but they applaud a younger child having a (very) large sip of a parents drink (I’ve seen this for myself. Does anyone know why this is. I don’t see why a young child can have alcohol when they shouldn’t have it at all when someone who can legally drink at home can’t have a drink
