How to Draw a Coffee Cup?3 min read
Who doesn’t love a nice hot cup of strong coffee in the morning to wake you out of your drowsiness and get you ready for the day? Coffee lovers will definitely agree! While your parents may love your two cups of coffee a day, we sure hope your kids don’t! Please make sure that you are keeping your children far away from coffee, especially if they are under 13 years of age! Too much caffeine is anyway not good for any human being, but coffee can seriously affect young children negatively. Before we get into our drawing tutorial, let’s take a look at how coffee can affect children.
How do coffee and caffeine affect kids?
Coffee contains caffeine which has been widely defined as a drug because of how it stimulates a human being’s central nervous system. Because kids are literally mini humans, coffee and caffeine can affect them just as much if not more even if it’s just a smaller dose. Caffeine can cause nervousness, an upset stomach, headaches, sleeping issues, faster heart rate, higher blood pressure, increased anxiety, jitters and nervousness among other problems. While these issues can occur in both adults and kids, it doesn’t take a lot of caffeine to produce these effects in young children.
