A new report published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs suggests that giving your child a sip of beer or wine every once in a while, is a bad idea in the long run.

The study found that sixth-graders who got a sip were five times more likely to have a full drink by the time they got to high school.

The researchers found that those kids are also four times as likely to binge drink or get drunk.
