Kids Allowed Sips Of Alcohol More Likely To Drink Later

Kids allowed sips of alcohol more likely to drink later

If you've already allowed your kids to take a little sip of your beer or wine from time to time, you probably won't be pleased when you hear the findings of a new report.

Senh: Ok, I guess I won't let my kids sip alcohol under they're at the right age. I thought it was interesting that kids, who got alcohol from an adult other than their parents, are more likely to binge drink. But kids who got sips of alcohol from their parents are more likely to binge drink (or consume a full can of alcohol) than those who didn't drink at all. The bottom line is don't even give them a sip until they're ready.
