Here is an article from MSNBC, here, that says:
On a recent Saturday afternoon at a grungy, darkened nightclub on Manhattan's Lower East Side, toddlers with fake tattoos jumped up and down on a crowded dance floor.
To accommodate the stroller set, nightclubs have to make a few adjustments—like making sure floors are cleared of last night's broken glass.
What good can possibility come from such? What is with us parents here in America? We’re not doing this for our kids; we are doing this for ourselves.
Capitalizing on Gen-X parents' appetite for all things hip, bands like the Terrible Twos, the Sippy Cups and the Dirty Sock Funtime Band are doing shows that make Mom and Dad feel less like June and Ward Cleaver and more like Gwyneth
Paltrow and Chris Martin.
Is it fun for the kids? Of course, but more than fun, is it right or is it harmful? Do we really believe that we can bring a child to a night club when they are eight, then expect them not to want to go when they are eighteen? Will it be just as innocent?
I suspect the POSSIBLITY will increase for them to trade in their milk for alcohol, their candy for smokes (and maybe drugs), their toys for fornication, and their giggles for cursing.
Do you find a problem with this, or am I out on a limb by myself here?
