I have a friend who was telling me about how she lets her 8-year-old drink energy drinks every morning before school. She says the drinks make him more alert and attentive in class. But she went on to say that his grades have not improved.

Now I'm a firm believer in supporting moms without the whole mom-shaming crap that goes on, but I must admit that I gave my friend a little side eye when she was telling me about giving her kid an energy drink every morning.

They are loaded with sugar and caffeine, which obviously is not good for kids. I can see an energy drink once in awhile, but not every morning.

Is it OK to give your kid an energy drink every day? Tell us what you think in the comments.
