Is your child a video game player? The Doctors warn how caffeine-loaded drinks are being marketed to kids and why parents should be concerned about the possible dangers caffeine can have on our young ones.
The Doctors welcome parenting expert Dr. Deborah Gilboa to discuss the drinks (which contain very high levels of the stimulant) and are being marketed and sold to kids online, claiming to help them play better by making them more alert and stay awake longer.
Dr. Gilboa warns these drinks can contain the caffeine equivalent to a 6-pack of Coke or 2 Red Bull beverages. She is also concerned because the drinks are sweet and kids are likely to enjoy the taste of it and seek it out. The parenting expert also warns how caffeine has been shown to stunt growth and changes how the brain develops, as well as immediate side effects like raising blood pressure and heart rate, disrupting sleep, and causing irritability.
The parenting expert feels a middle school or high school-aged child cannot use this product safely and strongly encourages parents to speak with their children about the possible dangers. She says if parents do not have an open line of communication with their kids about these types of products, it is very possible that someone else will.
She also stresses that parents need to make sure their kids understand that a pill, any type of medicine, or a stimulant is never the right way to improve one's performance, especially when it comes to video games.
