She Speaks on Energy Drinks

This is bound to ruffle a few feathers. But do I care? Nope. Some of you out there need to hear this…

One of my biggest pet peeves lately is seeing children (under 14) walking around sipping energy drinks. I’ve yet to meet a child who’s 7, 9, 0r even 12 that “needs” an energy drink. Sedatives? Yes. Energy drinks? No!

While walking around our town’s local spring festival today I witnessed almost every other kid under 14 with either Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, and Amp energy drinks. Surely, it’s a fad. You must have these to be popular, right? But what are their parents thinking? Now, I’m no scientist. A historian at best. But a simple Google search will reveal the danger of energy drinks on children. Too lazy to search? Click HERE- I did it for you.

So do you job as a parent and tell your “I’ve just totally gotta have it, Ma!” kid to buck up, text a little less, and have a glass of milk, juice, or water. Surely their life will not spin into dweeb-dom without them.
