My 12 yo thinks he should be permitted to drink coffee in the morning...and not decaf, "because that would be pointless". I was at least 14 before I joined the Coffee Achiever's Club*.

And who would be making this coffee anyway? Oh, and he requests soy milk and more agave. So now my kitchen is a coffee bar?
(OK - actually it kind of is, but not for kids!) Will he next be specifying how many degrees at which he would like his no-foam latte?

I told him just to go to bed earlier.
His reply? "How about Red Bull then?"
