I was making a beef carbonade for supper, the recipe called for red wine as a flavor ingredient. When my son saw me measure and pour the wine into the stew pot, he began crying and hysterically yelling that he would not eat the stew because I had put alcohol in the cooking pot and I was going to kill our family. He said his teacher had told him all alcohol was poison. I was outraged then…and still am!


One Response to “Testimonial”

  1. Edwin Bonilla Says:

    Teachers need to be careful because if they are too intolerant of alcohol, they will use scare tactics to get students a misunderstanding of the effects of alcohol on people of any age; which is wrong. Scare tactics should be shunned because to effectively teach alcohol education, the truth must be told. The boy was intentionally taught wrong about alcohol and there should be no teacher who does this. Incorrectly teaching alcohol education can cut both ways so if a teacher said that alcohol didn’t make people drunk after a couple of drinks, then that teacher should be disciplined. Unfortunately, the culture in the U.S. is hypocritical about alcohol in that too many people justify scare tactics over the truth about alcohol.
