What Age Do You Think Is Appropriate for a Child to Try Alcohol?

Question by Sumiyah: What age do you think is appropriate for a child to try alcohol?
And when I say “Alcohol” I mean a small sip from a parents’ glass of champagne at New Year’s Eve at a family
party? When would you let a child have his/her own glass of champagne under supervision on a special occasion?

I would say 15 for a sip and for his/her own glass 16/17.

What’s your opinion?

BQ. If you could travel anywhere in this world with anyone you can take? Where would you go, what would you do and who would you take along with you?

Best answer:

Answer by Anna
12 and above for a sip, 14 and above for a glass. I mean, they probably wouldn’t even like champagne at that age so it’d put them off.

Answer by Sierra
10 for a sip on New Years Eve and 15 have their own glass. They’re old enough by then to be able to handle a small glass of alcohol.
