    No however I let DS have a sip of my wine the other night coz he kept harassing me for it and I knew if he had a sip he'd hate it and stop asking. (it worked). I also remember being given sips of grandpas beer as a child.

    Ive seen people let their kids have swigs of cruisers etc and it really worries me

    No I don't think it's funny at all. My younger sister's friend, who is 16, once went to give DD who is 7, a UDL once when we were having a family BBQ. My sister quickly stepped in as I didn't see what was happening, and told her not ot be so stupid. She didn't understand why she got that reaction as her sister, who is about 24, gives her son, who is a year younger than DD a cruiser, or UDL when she's drinking. Apparenly it calms him down.. Wtf is wrong with some people?

    I didn't even know this was a thing! I have never seen it happen an it would disgust me.

    I was at the shops the other day and a boy, about 5, asked his mum for a coke her reply. "No, you can have a Gatorade, what colour Gatorade do you want?" Wow...do people not understand these are drinks for adults and should only be drunken after intense exercise?

    I find it bizarre. Why don't the parents just say no?

    My son is demanding, but if we have an unsuitable drink (alcohol, cola etc) and he asks, we just say it's a drink for grown ups only, and he accepts that.

If they taste something yuk first then they are way less likely to want more.

    I am talking no more than half a teaspoon at school age. Not toddlers. My dd1 had never ever asked what it tastes like or wanted to see what it tastes like again and I know that for now at least if someone offered her some I know 100% she would say no.

    If I thought for a second she might like it there is no way in hell I would have let her try it. But I sense this thread isnot about giving kids bad tasting alcohol as a deterrent, more so as a thread about those that think it is funny on some weird way.

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

    Absolutely not!

    My parents are non drinkers so I was never exposed to alcohol till I was about 17. I never took an interest in alcohol. I never had my first drink until I was 24 and the most I've had at once is 2 drinks so I've never, nor will I ever, get drunk.
    My DD will not be exposed to alcohol either.

    You have no way of KNOWING they will defiantly hate it. My 2yo eats chilli's. Never though shed like them but she does.

    I'm sorry I can't believe your comparing bonjella.. A topical medicine to reduce pain designed for children.. To an alcohol drink. A drug adults use to relax/socialize (or like the taste of, whatever) they are not the same.
    And if a child sips a beer/wine and hates it.. They'll refuse beer/wine but I still seriously doubt they'll turn down Lolly water that looks and taste like cordial anyway.

    What is the difference between you giving her a sip as an aversion, and someone else giving her one and having the same effect? How old is your DD?

    I would never willingly give my children any booze. But my DS has got hold of a half full beer bottle and poured it down him self when he was first starting to walk, i shat my pants and freaked out big time. Babies love beer because of the yeast in it.
