A significant number of children are already drinking by middle school, suggesting that prevention needs to start in the elementary grades, researchers conclude in a new report.
In their study of more than 4,000 sixth-graders at Chicago schools, 17 percent of the children had used alcohol in the past year. Those students who'd started drinking were also more likely than their peers to have a range of problems, such as getting into fights, shoplifting or getting into trouble at school.
The findings, reported in the journal Health Education and Behavior, suggest that alcohol prevention needs to start in grade school, researchers say.

I took my first sip when i was two, my father was throwing a cookout and i just went right down the picnic table cleaning up every ones drink apparently.
My father has always let me drink at a young age which taught me how to respect it which IMO is a plus. Most kids who live a sheltered life and don't take a sip till their in high school are always the ones who then abuse it and can never learn how to handle it!
Parents should teach their children about things like alcohol not shelter their kids from it because 9 times out of ten the parents who manage to make it a mortal sin for their kids to touch, are the ones who end up having a problem with it!
