I believe that the legal drinking age should be lowered to the age of 14 but it should only be legal to drink with a parent that has ID on them as well as the parent must stay 100% sober to watch over their child. Through research I have found that one of the leading reasons why kid abuse alcohol/drugs is through curiosity because they cannot try it out with their parents constantly not allowing them. I believe that parents should not only allow their kids to drink but they should do it with their kids so that their they can find their kids limit with them. Parents always say "don't get drunk in public because you can't trust anyone", so then why don't they go and drink with their kid, aren't they the most trustable person that they and their kid knows? By changing the law like this it will allow kids to get that experience at a time when they are most prone to being put on the spot. Most kids illegally drink at an age under 19 anyways and their parents most of the time allow them too. We should change the law so that parents can experiment with their kids and keep their kids more safe by being the trustable adult that they have their first drink with.
