Since we already have two threads on alcohol, I thought we needed another. What is the appropriate age, in everyone own opinion, to begin to teach children about alcohol? It's been said that curiosity killed the cat, so when do we or do we allow our children to taste in order to satisfy that curiosity? If you cook with alcohol(my eldest calls it all liquor) how do you explain all those bottles in the fridge and cabinet? In the end, what kind of decision do we want our children to make about alcohol? Keep in mind that in this country, the law is, a person must be 21 in order to purchase and consume alcohol.
