    We all think it absurd and wrong, but some places in Europe it's their culture to give sips of alcohol to babies and toddlers.

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

    Dh was at a old mates house for there sons 2nd birthday. ( this family are known alcoholics) and they seriously had there child drunk at one stage they made up a concoction with all spirits and he wanted to try it the mum said no you are not drink that and opened him a double black ice smirdof and gave that to him instead. My boys have never had any alcohol we don't drink either and when we do we do it when they are getting looked after by mine or dh mum.

    No way

    I remember being given some alcohol as a small child and then being laughed at because it burnt my throat - quality parenting.
    There are also photos of me 'drinking' beer as a toddler (i assume the bottles are empty but who knows).
    I think it is disgusting and not cute at all.

    What kind of a moron gives their toddler booze? What a negligent and irresponsible thing to do

    No, it is not cute, it upsets me actually.

    I am fortunate that I do not know anyone in real life who would let their little kid drink alcohol for their entertainment.

    These people should be reported.

    Actually, I think I would have called the police.

    Are you serious?! I'd be reporting them to DOCS there is no way that is acceptable/funny on any level.

    DH stupidly left half a glass of rum and coke on the computer desk one night & the next morning i found DD drinking it (she was about 18-20mnths) I spent 20 mins on the phone to health direct and felt like the most irresponsible parent in the world. I literally pulled DH out of bed and pretty much ripped him to shreds . He felt terrible too.

    I think its about as cute as giving your child a hit from a bong. I don't care the quantity, it is stupid, immature and pretty off.
