Young children growing up are naturally inquisitive, impressionable and eager to know what is going on around them and in this they are like sponges, absorbing everything what is happening around them. By being caring parents we endeavour to teach them, by example, what is right or wrong, what is acceptable behaviour and try not to expose them to, what we feel is inappropriate,
Am I then a prig, an old fuddy duddy when I say I find this ‘game’ for young children disgusting?
Sorry if I am coming on a little strong but I do find it rather offensive and something I would not like my little grandsons to encounter!
I agree that this would seem to be most inappropriate for children, or anyone else for that matter, to think it was fun to be putting 'poop' on another's head, even if in the game it is presumably plastic.
I appreciate they are trying to get a message across re washing hands but there has to be better ways of doing it.
Young children - boys in particular - are obsessed with biological functions. Listen to any group of four-year-olds playing together and you will eventually hear 'poo' 'wee' 'willy' and 'bum' followed by fits of giggling. It is all a normal phase of their development, and will eventually pass, as all childhood phases do.
If parents don't want their children to play with these games they won't buy them.
