I know that feeling, my "dad " was an alcoholic. (Recovering 2 years now) but i had used to ask for the same thing. ((Hugs)) to your daughter! Im 24 and my dads only been cleaned almlst 2 years. Its hell having an alcoholic parent.
That's really sad that a child has to even worry about that and even sadder that her own father put his dickhead brother's selfish desires ahead of his child's feelings.

That's sad but it is his house and he's adult so he can drink if he wants to. It would have been nice if her dad had respected her request though. I would also had it at a different place where there was no alcohol.
Well she wouldn't like my family's parties then, lol. We have alcohol for all bday parties, christenings, weddings, everything. No one is an alcoholic though. She could always have the party somewhere else. I'm not sure she should be able to dictate things like this.
Ex and I would be having a chat that might end with me telling him where to take his beer and shove it. Look i like a beer as much as the next person. The boys have seen me drink one or have wine. And I've been to parties where the adults congregate in another room and have wine or a beverage (Usually it's older kids and they're playing at a bbq). But if your kid says to you please don't drink that should be your warning that you need AA. Like NOW.
