A couple of weeks ago I posted about laws that allow teens to drink with their parents and asked for info on Michigan law. Brian, a student of mine who is also a juvenile probation officer sent this:
I checked into the laws governing underage drinking related to parents here at the courthouse. There are no laws that allow for parents to let their kids drink in any circumstance. However, there are limited exceptions. One is allowed for religious purposes in a religious setting. Another is for educational purposes like in a culinary class for cooking. If a parent provides or allows a kid to drink they can be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor or furnishing alcohol to a minor.
