I have given my kids their own coffee, usually coffee milk but sometimes small regular cups. And once every few months dh will let them try sips of his beer. We don't go crazy with it and I was raised to have a couple sips of beer and I hate it now and never rebelled with alcohol because it wasn't a huge deal. Even now half the time they tell him beer is gross.
So if I am so wrong then why are most people that grew up with sips saying they hate beer now? 90% of those that tried it young don't even DRINK it. So please, I would love your thoughts on why I am so wrong.
Edit again: 400 more replies were added after the first edit so forget about that. To those saying it is illegal, it is not in my state. I am the parent and can give them alcohol. I wouldn't get arrested for it, I am not teaching my kids to break laws. If you are going to post about how illegal it is like a lot of you did then please look up the laws before you reply, I am in Texas. I don't find one sip of beer every few months harmful. I don't sit them down in front of super why every night or diego and crack open a beer for each of them. I am teaching them to respect alcohol and know how to limit it and be responsible.
