Here’s Why You Should Never Pour Hot Coffee Onto a 7-Year Old Child

pouring hot coffee on to a child

We live in strange times, where parenting has seen its fair share of new techniques and approaches brought to the forefront. The internet offers seemingly too much information to the point where parents will jeopardize their own children’s well-being in the name of defying proven science. One thing is certain, though, and after hours and hours research, we can confirm that you should not pour hot coffee onto a 7-year old child.

There are many who would disagree with this advice. There are parents who will gladly brew a piping hot pot of coffee, grip it from their coffee machine, and tip it right on to the heads or faces of their 7-year old child, despite medical reports and scientific evidence that suggests to never, ever do this.

What often gets lost in the conversation about whether or not to pour hot coffee onto your 7-year old child are the long-term consequences. Many parents believe pouring hot coffee onto their 7-year old child can prevent diseases and other birth conditions (like autism), but the reality is this method has been proven time and time again by the medical and scientific communities to be dangerously short-sighted and careless. Still, parents insist on doing it because if it’s on the Internet it must be true.

The bare bones truth is that you should not be a schmuck. If you pour hot coffee onto your 7-year old child, you are not preventing autism, but rather severely injuring your child with the possibility of infections that may spread to other children who might die and it will be your fault because you are a stupid parent.

In short, protect all your children from having hot coffee poured on them by not pouring hot coffee on to them.

    Oh.. my.. God.. please tell me the people that are commenting about how awful burns are and seem genuinely confused on who would think burning a child is a good thing are just people being trolls. It is obviously comparing the idea of pouring hot coffee on a child to prevent a disease with the absurdity of refusing vaccinations for children based off of the words from morons with zero scientific evidence or formal education in the field with.
    People don’t seem to realize just how dangerous these anti-vaxxers are to not only their own children, but to those who are most at risk for developing life threatening diseases. Infants who were too young to get receive certain vaccinations have actually DIED because they came in contact with some anti-vaxxer’s unvaccinated child while just out in public like everyone is day to day. It is sick what these people are doing to society and as far as I am concerned they have no place in the schools or anywhere else that there are large volumes of children at any given time.

    I’m just trying to get my head around whether anyone actually seriously would pour hot coffee on their kid. Seems like a no-brainer to me that pouring hot coffee on a child would be stupid and dangerous.

    This may help:

    Stella Liebeck lost 20% of her SKIN due to spilling McDonald’s coffee on herself in the passenger seat of a car. She sued to get McDonald’s to pay for skin grafts , and they did. She was demonized all over the media/entertainment industry for decades for supposedly getting 2 million dollars (she didn’t) over a silly little coffee burn.

    Hot coffee is no joke, but her terrible accident was turned into a very popular one!

    How did anyone get the idea that it is helpful?
