Milk has two important ingredients: protein and calcium. Those people who discontinue milk should make sure that they are getting sufficient milk and calcium from natural sources. Soymilk may be a good substitute. I am not sure if soymilk has natural calcium or it is fortified. Excess calcium by natural products like milk may not cause problems. But excess calcium from artificial sources may be harmful.

One should make sure that children get proper nutrients as lack of protein and calcium can impair their growth.
