DRINK WINE AT 17 NOT 7

The recent revelation by Emma Watson, the co-star in HARRY POTTER films, that she was given wine by her family at the age of seven might have been made public for its shock value and as publicity gimmick for the latest Harry Potter film released last Friday, but it might send out wrong signals that its fine to start seven-year olds on wine, when seventeen may be the right age to start under parents’ supervision.
There has been an onslaught of this news report in the media before the worldwide release on November 19 of the latest film-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I found over 11,000 items listed in Google where the 20-year old actress reveals that her lawyer parents Chris and Jacqueline always treated her like an adult and she was allowed to drink wine with meals as a child.
