These are questions that you don’t have to be a rocket surgeon or even a responsible parent to know the obvious answer is “No”. Your kids will do enough drinking on their own later in life. You don’t need to provoke or promote it.
Is it ok to serve children alcohol, even if it’s just wine?
Is it ok to serve a toddler wine in a “sippy” cup?
Is it funny to notice the served child feeling the effects of the alcohol, even if it only makes them sleepy?
I have a 7 year old nephew that will pick up a beer and start slugging it down without any knowledge of how it will effect him. We have to watch that one when you’re sitting around having a few cold ones with my brother.
