    Default Drinking from a glass.

    How old were your children when you allowed them to drink independently from a glass?

    DS is 4 and I still give him cups. This is because I think I clean up a spilled cup of water at least once a week - he's totally capable of drinking out of a glass, it's more that he wacks it off the table whilst distracted! I'd rather mop up as spill than clean shattered glass off the floor.

    I still give my almost 6 year old plastic cups as the whole of our downstairs is tiled and he's always knocking his water over! I'd be forever clearing up glass and buying new glasses otherwise! He drinks from glasses at restaurants, cafes etc.. Has done since about 3-4 years.

    Both my girls (3 and 1) drink from a glass daily, supervised and unsupervised. They rarely drop/spill them.

    Dd is 3.5yrs and will use a glass on occasions, mostly if we are eating out. Dh has broken too many of our glasses so they are precious here, I'm not risking dd dropping one as well:-)
