It is bad but you still are a good mother.But What's that big bad thing that you've done!!! :) It's not bad of course but a little mistake.<br />
Please be relaxed you still have so much to show your boy that you are a good mother. <br />
<br />
I mean you wanted him to taste it no big deal teach your children how to behave and how to face life. Just cause you gave your little boy a taste it doesn't mean now that you have lost the rights to be a good mother to him.

It is not bad at all, i am a 16 year old girl and the first alchohol i ever recieved was from my mom. I am so glad that she let me experience it before i got out into the world and decided to gulp 14 bottles of beer because i didnt know what it did

Best Answer

Of course not. Fair amount of research on this, actually -- stereotypes aside, people who are most vulnerable to the alcohol abuse that precedes alcoholism are more likely to be from homes where it is completely withheld from them than those whose families provide the chance to drink responsibly. Only thing to be careful about with children is adjusting serving size to body weight -- 4 oz Irish Cream is maybe what, 2 oz 80 proof alcohol -- you can use an online blood alcohol calculator to estimate. Wine is always a good choice -- they usually don't like the taste, so they don't ask for more.

lol.. I think my parents gave me a sip of wine when I was 8. I lived in Spain for a decade and it was common place for kids as young as 6 to have a small glass of champagne to cheer for the holidays.

Not wicked but alcohol is not something I would encourage!!!!!

Best Answer

15! For goodness sake, of course its ok at that age! I introduced my kids to tiny sips of alcohol when they were quite young; never made a fuss about it and always in the home environment. I hope they have grown up to have a balanced view of how to handle and use alcohol wisely.

Naah, it's fine. My Dad bought me half a cider when I was 8 years old - never done me any harm. Oh, apart from the fact that I am now 42 and totally alcohol dependent; ahh well, no use dwelling on the details, eh?
