Tot Chugs Beer at Phillies Game

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Maybe you've seen this video making the rounds -- a blond kid, age 3 or 4, chugging from a beer bottle at a recent Phillies game:

Some parents are outraged, saying it's tantamount to child abuse!

Others say it's no real biggie ... and who even knows if the bottle was empty or not? (Or maybe it was root beer ....)

What do you think of the beer-swilling tot? Should the parents be punished, or not?

Who really knows if it just contained water? or heck was a vessal of something other than beer?

Even if it was, so what? close your mouth and watch the world revolve.

We all know how dangerous alcohol is to children. He should have been hitting a bong instead..

I think we should refrain from jumping to conclusions without knowing the facts.

I know when my kid was still about as long as my bicep I was standing having a beer and conversation. I thought, hey, a sip can’t hurt, let’s see the face he makes.

He got the sip, and opened his eyes wide, and up came both hands: he grabbed hold of the bottle, tilted it up and flat-out chugged. He got three-four-five full swallows before I got out of stunned-and-just-watching state and took it from him. I started trying to take it at three.
