Do you let your kids drink coffee?

Mine started drinking it at 12, they are now 16 and 17. It's a little weird because in my family coffee is for adults only, but in DH's side everyone drinks coffee. DH is from Puerto Rico and they drink extra strong coffee too.

Yes, I have never made anything forbidden. I have explained what things do to your body. So far nobody has tested my knowledge! Lol I feel pretty good about where their heads are to.

No coffee drinking for my son. He does eat coffee ice cream and really likes it just like his mother. I don't drink coffee myself.

Every once in awhile, all things in moderation (within reason)

 I used to buy little cups and give it to them 1/2 coffee & 1/2 milk when they were little. Then as they got older they could have it if they wanted. I encouraged my youngest to have coffee before school. He was ADHD and coffee helped calm him down.
