 At what age do you or would you allow your kids to drink coffee on a daily basis?  Are you worried about them getting hooked on coffee?

 My kids have been allowed to have it  (sips) since they were young.  They started drinking it daily when they were at what ever age they were able to make it themselves. Varied by child.

NO, I wasn't worried.

I will discourage it until they are 16.  I don't even allow them caffeinated soda unless it's a party or special occasion.  If my kids are anything like me, then yeah they probably will end up getting hooked someday.

Probably 15-16. I'll make sure they are well started puberty before starting drinking it regularly, if they feel the need.

How on earth do you get little kids to drink coffee? I hated coffee as a kid...then again...I was tainted. After my granny got older and started into dementia, she would spit her snuff in coffee cups and we did not know it and I drank it one time.

I did not start on coffee until I was in my 30s.
