To drink coffee can be a serious risk for kids. to some kids it can even give them a greater risk of cancer.

We all have heard of the myth that coffee can stunt a child's growth. This is scientifically proven to be untrue. Brewed coffee is full of antioxidants, with beneficial results. Studies have shown that coffee drinkers are 50% less likely to suffer from cancer than non-coffee drinkers. Several studies have suggested that the chlorogenic acid found in coffee may help prevent Type 2 Diabetes. In other research, coffee has been shown to help protect against asthma (most asthma medications contain high doses of caffeine), gall stones, cirrhosis of the liver, and Parkinson's Disease. Because coffee helps boost body metabolism, it can also be effective in a weight loss program.

Sure there are some exceptions. However, I find it interesting that you allow your own kids to drink coffee even if you are clearly so adamant about the prevention of allowing kids to drink coffee. Also, if your own child has diabetes, you should know enough about the condition to spell it correctly.
