The Ben/Josh/Pip going out, being drunk and having hangovers. Is it supposed to be funny? I can't see anything funny about people being drunk. If I were their parents I certainly wouldn't be sympathising and telling them to go back to bed ☹

I know fur and chocolate aren't a good mix - but I can't resist.
I thought that Jill's attitude was sensible. She knows that things are different from when she was a young woman, and is realistic that her grandsons may well have brief sexual encounters.
She also probably assumes that neither Ruth nor David has given any of their children any advice on taking precautions and responsible sex. She babysits the result of this neglect on a regular basis, I imagine.
I have to say that having taught teenagers for years, the odd episode of getting drunk doesn't strike me as unusual. These things happen. And I must confess that I thought the revelation that Ben's sexual encounter was with a woman much older than him, was funny.
