    that get insulted because you make different choices for your children. Why do they get insulted when I ask them not to give my children soda? I don't care for Capri sun or boxed fruit drinks but soda for my children is where I have to draw the line. They act as if I told them not to give their children soda. And they love to lecture me on how if I don't let them have it now they will grow up and sneak it.

    I know. I'm trying to figure out when I should introduce them to heroin so they won't sneak it later in life.

    Have you ever checked the sugar content of capri Sun? It's only slightly lower by percentage than coke.

    Which is why I said I'm not crazy about it. I used to ask them not to give my kids those either. But, I've been worn down. We don't drink them at home. It's water and milk for dinner at home. Oddly enough, my kids are fine with that.

    Ask your dentist. Soda is one of the WORST things for your teeth. In addition to the sugar, the acid strips away your enamel. and then there's the staining.

    Any parent who doesn't know this is an asshole.

    True for everyone but aunts, uncles and grandparents. Let them spoil the kids as they see fit for the little while they have with them.

    I don't think it's that big a deal for them to have it once in a while. But they're your kids. And people should just STFU about it if you ask them not to give them soda.

    They just don't care, FFF. The shit is addictive and I see them giving it to two year olds. Which is on them. Just don't expect me to give it to my two year old.

    Hey, at least they're coming to you. Do you know how many adults I know who never go to the dentist?

    It's fuckin' gross.

    Sorry, you're being kind of dickish. A little soda once in a while, for example at a friend's house, is EXACTLY how you should play it. It doesn't deprive them, it just says "this is a candy treat, and we don't subsist on candy at home". The bonus is that you don't end up offending/fighting with other kids' parents.

    Why are you choosing to make a scene? Your kids will enjoy the soda, get along with their friends, and return to a clean eating home when all is done.

    Well, except for the part that he may be quite wrong and others on his same panel disagreed strongly:
