Do Your Kids Drink Coffee?

Do you place any rules or restrictions on your kids drinking coffee if they want to? I've never had a problem with it and all 4 of my kids love coffee but none of them drinks any soda at all.

  • It's my 10yo I worry about, my dad let's him drink coffee when he is over there and Sam LOVES it! I don't let him have it here. After 15 I am not so concerned (I don't know why, it is pretty arbitrary). I Started drinking coffee at 14 (at band camp). I only have 1 other kid that loves coffee and she doesn't live here anymore. My 18yo loves the smell of coffee but hates the taste so she will make anytime I ask ;0)

  • Only my oldest whose 21 drinks coffee like I do. The other kids have never been into it.

  • Once in a while. My kids don't like plain coffee, they like it with creamer and oodles of sugar. It's the oodles of sugar that makes me limit their intake.

  • Yea mine don't put sugar in theirs, I'd have a problem with too much sugar too.

  • No, he is only 5 so I wouldn't let him even if he wanted to. I don't like it either though so he isn't around it much.

  • My 13yo DD drinks coffee occasionally. Half a cup, with milk and too much sugar. That's why she only gets it occasionally.

  • the girls (teenagers) drink the fancy stuff from like star bucks or dutch brothers but the dont like plain coffee , and the way i limit is they have to pay for it themselves so they only get about one a month, and ds is only 9 and doesnt ask
