I have had a few sips of beer and wine but my family doesn't drink much at all. I think the whole give them some alcohol when there young thing isn't a good idea though, just because they don't like it when there young doesn't mean that they won't try it again when there older.

I don't think it's an issue I have had wine for religious ceremonies and I've had a sip of champagne for a toast.I have friends from other countries who've been drinking since they were eight (watered down wine) and one from Germany who on occasion would get a beer with her friends.Even though they started drinking young it's a part of the culture and their parents set rules and limits and showed their kids how to be responsible.I think the drinking age should be lowered to eighteen, if you really want to drink you'll find a way to do it; and if it's legal it is probably safer.

fyi, people who say they tried it and like it, a scientific study say that cigarettes and alcohol literally take the sheen out of your hair and it will be totally dull, idk about you, but that is a deal breaker

I honestly think that letting them drink sips of their parents wine or beer every once in awhile when they are young (say, before 10 or 9), it will help them not want to drink alcohol as a teen because they never tried it. I think this because I honestly have never heard of one kid at this age who has liked alcohol when they have tried some of their parents. When and if they are exposed to it while hanging out with friends as a teen, they can refer back to this memory and remember how disgusting it tasted.

No way! It smells horrible to me anyway, and I bet it tastes just as bad. I never want to try it. Yucckkk

That is kind of scary, but my parents don't believe in letting their kids try it before 21. One of my friends though when she was 5 she drank 5 glasses of "apple juice" because she thought that's what it was, but actually it was beer!
