I grew up in a europ
I grew up in a european hohsluoed. My father is a german citizen living in the states. My mother is italian and we have drank beer or wine with dinner or at family outtings since I was a small child. I think at 2, it's not a big issue. You could be drinking moo juice for milk or juice for soda it shouldn't be a concern at that age what they think your juice really is. As they get older, get curious it should be explained that it is indeed an adult drink. When they older, as in 10 or older and they ask, sit down and explain it in depth that it is only a once a day thing, you don't abuse it, drive, hurt anyone, etc. When we make children see things as taboo and make things so blown out of proportion, they are more apt to want to experiment and do dumb stuff down the road. Just my two cents. I have a 12 yr old and he's seen how alcohol can be abused by an uncle and he recognized it as dumb and childish and damaging in so many way. Good luck!
