Yeah, there is a double standard for soda here. I can drink it but my kid can't. If you ask him why he can't have it he will tell you he's too little. No big deal.

Exactly, Jillian. Kids need to understand that there are boundaries they must follow that we don't have to. I mean if I go by the no double standard logic, then it would be perfectly OK for me to allow my teen, heck even my soon to be 7 year old to drink a glass of wine with me or a can of beer with DH.

What I truly find funny here is that this all or nothing attitude is coming from a person who will accommodate their kids eating habits. I mean really, what in the world is so different about making a quick and simple alternative versus only cooking things that you know they would eat? I don't see much of one.

I won't cook 6 different meals either. I do ask that my kids try everything on their plate and if they really don't like it, the alternative is cereal or a sandwich.

I also have a ton of double standards in my home. I can drive, my kids can't. I can stay up as late as I want, my kids have a set bedtime. I drink Dr Pepper like they are going to stop making it tomorrow, not my kids. I could go on and on with all the double standards. I heart double standards. They make me feel like A BOSS.

Yep, and I own it: Daddy and I pay for the groceries and do the cooking, so we can be as picky as we want to be

I hate double standards so my son gets to drink coffee in the morning, a glass of red wine in the evening, and every so often, he does the driving to grandma's house on my way to work. It's nice to be the one who gets to go back to sleep in the car early in the morning. I do think I am outgrowing the car seat though. At least it is forward facing.

We don't really have double standards with food in our house. DH drinks pop but only at work, and we dont' really drink alcohol. We do drink wine occassionaly and yes that is a double standard since the boys can't drink that, yet. But they will drink wine before they are 21, probably at 16. Of course we do have other things that don't pertain to food, like I can drive and they can't, etc.
