How can i stop my 2 year old sister from drinking to much coke?!

Question: How can i stop my 2 year old sister from drinking to much coke!?
my mom, barely finished serving her coke, and she just now finished!.
every time she finishes she crys and begs and pleads for coke!. she bangs her head on the floor!. the only way to make her stop is giving her coke!. we tried not to buy anymore coke, and if we did, we would have to hide it!. and even if we dont have any, she wont stop crying for it!. how do we make her stop!?

Try find something that's healthy for a child to drink like juice that aren't sugary!. Or you could show her other choices that are safe to drink like milk, water, maybe once in awhile chocolate milk, good ice tea (healthy ones), and there's also fruit waters!. They're really good and try to get carbonated!. You're rewarding a two year old by thinking it's okay to have that drink so tell her no!. Let her cry all she wants no matter how annoying she is!. Try leaving those choices of other drinks that she can drinks and she'll decide to have something else!. She'll learn there are plenty of opportunity to drink from other than just one thing!. All crying does is getting her way and not solving it by talking about it!. It's also best to talk about it in an easy way to understand for her!. That's all I can say!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well you guys got yourself into this mess, it's not going to be pain free getting out of it!.

She cries because she knows it works!. So the only thing you can do is stop giving in to her!. She will eventually stop crying for it, but you have to stick it out no matter how much she cries, or it will never stop and it will happen with other stuff too!. She put her in a safe place when she throws a fit so she doesn't hurt herself!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'm sorry but first and foremost your mom needs to be ***** slapped for giving coke to a 2 year old!. your sister is hooked on the caffeine and sugar!. your mom needs to suck it up and stop giving it to her and eventually she will get over her crying when she figures out that it doesn't work anymore!.
if your mom is giving coke to a 2 yo then god knows what else she lets you guys eat and drink!. I gotta stop before I go on a rant and get reported!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yikes!. Coke is NOT a healthy choice for a toddler!. You're going to have to be patient and strong and just wait out her tantrums!. If she wanted to play with a knife and cried and cried for it, you wouldn't give in because you know it's not good for her!. It may take a little while, but eventually she'll stop throwing fits for it!. Don't cave, you're doing what's best for her!. If you give in when she throws a tantrum you're teaching her that it works, she needs to find out that it DOESN'T work!. Don't give her unhealthy stuff!Www@FoodAQ@Com

You could be really blunt and tell her that it will make her fat and give her diabetes!. 2 year olds shouldn't be drinking coke!. Your mother could dilute it, or fabricate some story about how it eats your insides!. I remember that's what my mother always told me about coke, and it scared me shitless!.
There is the same problem of drinking too much coke with my younger brother!. He is overweight now!.
Oh yeah, and DON'T give her diet coke!. No one should really be drinking that!. The chemicals in it are really filthyWww@FoodAQ@Com

It will take time, she is addicted to the caffeine in the coke - stop buying it altogether and start giving her fruit juice and water or milk!.

There is no nutrition in coke what-so-ever, so it is a waste of money!

Don't be bullied by a 2 year old, it will carry on for a long time if you do!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Perhaps she is addicted to the sugar and the caffeine in the coke!.

It's hard to break an addiction!. But you can try to substitute something else!. Give her some coffee!. And see if she is satisfied with that instead of coke!.

Coffee is better than coke because coke is a very acidic drink that damages your teeth when you drink it a lot!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You need to let her cry!. She is two, and you are not!. A two year old shouldn't be in charge, and I am sure that's not what you want!. She loves the sugar and caffeine, but it's not good for a baby!. Good luck, though! I love Coke, too!.!.!.but still!. Your Mom needs to say "no more"!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

every time she wants one put like pepper or ketchup in it so she doesn't like the taste anymore and when she asks why it tastes different say "the coke company changed the taste" good luck! =)


Simple add some lemon and 3 spoons of salt and water about 1 glass and 2 spoons of sugar with milk and that` it!.She will not drink coke for about a month or so!.Or you could not give her anything and let her cry she`ll get over it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Dilute the Coke with water so it doesnt have as much sugar in it!. Good luck!Www@FoodAQ@Com

uh, i would try to get her hooked on something that taste good and is healthier!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Put some ex-lax in it! That way, she'll have to (you know), every time she drinks it!! It will work for sure!!! =)Www@FoodAQ@Com

mild corporal punishment should do the trick!. stand up to the kid!!!!!!!!!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

pee in it and she' ll stop for sureWww@FoodAQ@Com
