    Default **spin off** Do you think its cute when toddlers drink alcohol...

    I've seen more then one person on separate occasions give their 2 yr old the empty beer bottle to drink the foam in the bottom. Never ever seen someone give their child a udl or Lolly water to drink though, dd once picked up a visitors glass of wine and tried to drink it, thankfully she tipped all I over herself and barely got any in her mouth, had to shower her because she stank so bad.

    Default **spin off** Do you think its cute when toddlers drink alcohol...

    I don't know why anyone would give their 6 year old a sip of alcohol to 'turn them off' the taste.

    How about you just try saying no? Chances are your kid will be a typical Aussie and start drinking at 16 regardless of what you do now.

    Might as well save their brain from alcohol while you can... As well as teach them respect for boundaries.

    Letting such a young child do
    Something prohibited in the hope it will turn them off said prohibited activity... Is bleeped Logic IMO.
    - why not give them a pack of ciggies and a rudey mag while you're at it!

I would rather try to pre empt it from happening at all.

    If kids are curious they will find a way of trying it behind your back when I would rather let her have a bad taste and hate it rather than her try butterscotch schnapps without me seeing and want more.

    It is no way the same as letting her drink alcohol like water. And I find it very harsh to be lumped in the same group as those that do. Kind of like being accused of not looking after your kids simply because weren't watching for 5 minutes and they did something they should not have.

    I defiantly do not put you in the same boat as parents who openly let their children drink alcohol.

    I completely understand what you were trying to achieve by giving your LO a sip.

    Also this is why I asked how old your LO was, because I also believe giving a 16 yo a sip or beer/wine as a deterrent is VERY different to giving a 3 yo a sip.

Giving him a sip knowing he'd hate it was taking the easy option, but it worked. Crucify away, I don't really give a flying fukc to be honest

    Fantastic idea actually.
    I might go down the the local shopping centre tomorrow, chain her to the door to passive chain smoke while watching where did I come from on her portable DVD player. Smoking and gratuitous s3x scenes.

    There are always going to be people judging.

    ETA. I don't even need to chain her.I think just walking into the shops would suffice.

    I'm sorry you had a rough time and there was no one there to help you but I still don't think letting a 2 year old sip wine is the answer I'd choose. If its too hard to say no, set up distractions etc (understandable in your case) perhaps putting the glass away until bedtime would have been another healthier option.

    Oh well if you can feed that many kids at once and stay sane hats off to you.!

    No, but like many things I thought were inappropriate and abnormal are actually ok and I am the one who is in the minority.

    I witnessed this many many times as a child and now.
