Am Talking About Toddlers Here.
Because A Mom Here Gives Her 2y.O Alcohol Whenever She Drinks.
And Am Wondering Whether That Is Ok!

Sure, once they're around 8 they can have a glass every now and again and on special occasions, more frequently when they're teens. Its no big deal unless you make it one.

No way. I would not even give a teenager alcohol.

I don''t even drink alcohol anymore so it does not even come into my home.

well it depends what - a taste is one thing, a glass no.  When they are older why not i.e. my 17 year old niece is coming to stay with us and you know what ? if she wants to try a couple of sips of beer I'm not gonna make a thing about it. But will I help her to get drunk? Hell no

Hell no! When they reach the legal age and are not living with me then they can have it

Growing up, I remember getting a small glass of wine for major holidays. Can't remember how young we were when we started. I will probably do the same with my kids. 

For me, it totally disillusioned me to the awe of alcohol and so I didn't go crazy in high school or college because it had been dangled my entire life as the forbidden fruit. I've always had a pretty healthy view of drinking and I think my parents did that by making it not a big deal.
