  • Don't give him money, make his money go directly to an lunch acct.

    Show him about kids that had to have their stomachs pumped after drinking too many.

  • Stop giving him money to buy them.
    Talk to the school about getting them taken out. They are horrible. They're nothing but a caffine high that can cause adverse reactions to the heart.

  • Oh...explain just how unhealthy they are. Call parents of the other kids, call the school to have them removed.

  • Talking to the school, if they are sold there might help. You have to watch it at his age, the more you say no, the more he will rebel. I used to tell my son he could have 1/week, I'd buy and I wanted him to drink it at home, early in the day. That worked for us. He's 19 now, and stays away from that stuff.

  • It is a soda with herbs (non drugs) It is not bad. He will have just as hard of a time sleeping if he has too many coca colas.

  • A monster is an energy drink with loads of caffeine. My husband buys them and I agree they are very unhealthy. There's really not much you can do about it other than punish him every time you find out, but he will just hide it from you. Those are expensive. His friends will get tired of buying them for him.
