alternatives to "kill[ing] your children"

Growing up, I had two options: drink a coke or make a little money.

Let me clear that up.

In my lifetime, there has always been a barrage of drink advertisements for me to see. And for my parents to contend with, so they leveled the field.... If I'd drink water, milk or unsweetened iced tea instead of unhealthy sodas and sugary drinks, Mom or Dad would hand me (in cold cash) the value of said sweet beverages. Money or sugar? To a kid who can stretch a dollar? No-brainer.

To this day, I recite the accompanied mantra of my parents: "Water is the best drink in the house."

The above is a response to "Kill Your Children" — a ChangeThis manifesto.
