Is it bad for kids to drink coffee?

My hubby is strongly against my 10 year old son to drink coffee. He had been saying the same thing over and over again when my son started to drink coffee at age 7. He said that coffee caffeine, that would affect a child's central nervous system as a stimulant. In other words, the child would have negative reactions such as temperamental, showing tantrums, unable to control his emotions, hyperactive, irregular heart beat and insomnia. I didn't believed his claims until my son suddenly showed those symptoms which I could control him either. Now, I had stopped giving him coffee. His symptoms had reduced tremendously. Do you think that drinking coffee is bad for kids? picture taken and belonged to peachpurple

I totally agree with your husband and this is why I will not give coffee to my child. Coffee does have some bad effects on children. There are many different drinks and any of them are better choices. I don't understand why choose coffee for children.

The old folks used to say drinking coffee would stunt the child's growth. I don't know if that's true. I know for a fact the caffeine makes kids wiry and it's hard to settle them down. My mom never let me drink coffee. My kids are all grown now and most of them are tea drinkers. Non-caffeine herbal teas. It's funny. Tea has caffeine. My mom didn't mind me drinking tea. But she disapproved of me drinking coffee. I was very glad when I got old enough to drink coffee. It smells so good!
