A Your students are presumably old enough to do so. We were NOT happy when our son's second-grade teacher took it upon herself to tell her pupils about it. Our local school has a habit of acting _in loco parentis_ just a little too much for our taste. Our son actually threw a screaming *fit* when he saw us tasting wine at an outdoor market. Evidently, he had been taught that wine is BAD, since it has alcohol and drinking ANY amount of alcohol by ANYONE is just about the worst thing that can be done.
