Don’t Serve Alcohol To Toddlers

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.

So why do I bring this stupid question up? Because stupid people do stupid things…like giving a toddler wine in a sippy cup. Gerry over at Disease Proof shared a story about a woman that observed some family members giving their toddler wine in a “sippy” cup during the holidays and laughing when the child was showing effects from the wine.
