Should we let our teen have a glass of champagne on New Year’s Eve?

The Sassy Housewife is a weekly advice column from Momaha.com. We will cover adventures in parenting, relationships and entertaining.

Dear Sassy Housewife,

Our 15-year-old daughter asked if she could have a small glass of champagne with us on New Year’s Eve. I’m not sure what to say. We don’t condone underage drinking, but then again, it’s New Year’s Eve. I’m not sure if saying “yes” undoes our “no underage drinking” policy.

Her father and I both consume alcohol in moderation. We have alcohol in our house. But we don’t get drunk, and we talk to her about the dangers of drinking too much. I think we set a good example.

What should we do?

Signed,
