When is it OK to let kids have a drink? I was at a picnic with my sister in law a few days ago and she poured her 12 year old a couple of inches of sweet alcoholic cider. I was horrified coz I always thought it was a big no no until later on.
But when is it OK?
My SIL said that stuff about the French and Italians giving alcohol to kids and it being all fine, but I'd read that in fact that starting early leads to more alcohol dependency, not less.
What do you think?
