Dear Fonseca:

My ex-wife and I got into an argument on Wednesday night after I found out she has been giving our 8 year-old energy drinks before school. She says the drinks make him more alert and attentive in class. His grades haven’t improved. I told my ex-wife that the drinks are dangerous for children because they can increase their heart rate and give them migraines. She disagrees and says they are good for focus. Should 8 year-olds be downing energy drinks?
