I really don't think a couple pictures of people legally drinking in bars are going to prevent employment unless complete sobriety is a requirement of the job.

I've done really well for myself and I'm sure there are plenty of party pictures of me up on facebook.

Also, I would ask your daughter how she feels. I know my family masks judgment with humor, so I'd be deleting similar comments from them, but that doesn't sound like they case here.

I'm pretty sure my own kid knows that I'm kidding her on her page. She has said, "The only time I drink is when you offer it to me." And I had said that we should get her drunk safely at home before she goes, so she'd have a sense of how the process works and feels in her own body.


The other kids might not realize it's a joke, so that's why I suddenly stopped. In fact, I think I'm going to have a policy of not commenting on any posts that her college friends make, even if I can see them, etc.

Yeah, I think the problem is more other people misunderstanding.  And if the joke is that she is drunk and not that she is jsut drinking it could potentially have unintended consequences.
