When Kids Parties Border on Abuse: Freaking 6-Year-Olds


I hate to be a prude or the old guy who stands on his lawn and shakes his fist at passing children, but in my day … when we had birthday parties, we actually played Pin the Tail on the Donkey. We actually smacked a pinata and gathered around to blow out candles.

We never filled up the patio with kids who appear to be as young as 4 and held a freak dancing contest, with the winner being the kid who can best simulate sex on the dance floor.

Sometimes, there are no words. 

A real ethical question lies behind the horrid veneer. Is this child abuse? Encouraging this type of behavior? Filming it for posterity?
