Have you ever let your children drink alcohol?

Sometimes I'll let my 17 year old have a sip of wine if we're at home.  She doesn't care for it very much though, so usually will refuse.

Do you ever let your kids drink?  How much?  How old are they?

My kids have a tiny lil' itty bitty shot (like a drop) of whiskey for Christmas Eve as a Slovak Tradition for good luck and good health for the upcoming year. That's it. They have been doing it since they were about 6months and I did it since I was about 6 months as well. It's a tradition and I don't fight traditions. lol

Yes. He is 14.

He can have some watered down wine (which he has been having since a young age but more watered down) and some beer. 

It is very normal to me

No. Plan to wait until they are legal age. My mom mixed drinks for us a few times when I was a teen. She even gave me a 6 pack of daiquiris on my 18th birthday.

Nope. Dd is 4 1/2 years old. I don't plan on letting her drink for a VERY long time

No I do not and will not. I'm not a cool mom.
