Help!  Every time my back is turned, my littlie grabs my cup of coffee and finishes the dregs.  Is this really bad?  Has it ever happened to you?

  • its not something I am comfortable for my children.

  • I would hold off as long as possible. As it is easy to get addicted to.

  • Well, it’s not going to kill them but it’s certainly a habit I’d discourage. Coffee isn’t good for kids. Don’t leave your cup in reach.

  • I would be definitely keeping it out of the little ones reach. Otherwise the next mug they reach for May be full with hot coffee

  • I’d be concerned if your little one grabs a hot cup of tea or coffee and burns himself/herself.

  • I don’t think this will hurt your child, but I would not leave my cup lying around.

  • Might have to rinse out your mug straight after you finish

  • I would not give my child coffee,and rarely does she drink coke,sometimes a frozen coke at maccas,they contain caffeine,kids don’t need to become addicted.

  • Once in a blue moon should be okay!

  • I don’t think kids should have coffee at all. Perhaps put your cup up higher.

  • Can’t beleive kids like it lol! I even can’t stand the taste!

  • It’s bad for adults … so are energy drinks.

  • My daughter does every now and again, aged eight. A milky one.

  • Yes it is bad, children are sneaky! Try keep it out of her reach one day she might severely burn herself.

  • I don’t think it will do any harm if it is only a small amount occasionally but would not be encouraging it. You are the one that has to deal with a little one with caffeine.
