My daughter keeps asking me for Decaffeinated Coffee with her breakfast, I’m a little apprehensive considering she is 10 years old.
I remember the day that Candy Cigarettes were outlawed and how I thought that was the most ridiculous thing ever. If kids pretend to smoke, it might actually lead to them smoking? More likely they were bound to gain weight from eating so many of those awful tasting candy smokes.
As the father of a 10 year old, who wants to drink decaf coffee, now I worry about the path beyond decaf.
What if she drinks regular Coffee by 11? An espresso addict by 13 and
onwards to the unthinkable, cigarettes!
I can go no further!
My daughter says “I want a warm drink in the morning, that’s not too sweet.”
What about decaf Tea? ” not enough taste” she replies. She insists that decaf tastes great, and it’s not just for show.
It’s a good thing I’m an enabler, and cave in to every request. It’s my conscience that worries me the most.
I can hear my ex-wife, flipping out over Decaf Coffee with my justifications of a harmless drink.
I think way too much, Coffee a problem ? Can you imagine me finding a lighter or cigarettes in her belongings? She’s a straight A kid in school, forget I said anything.
