I guess I have the problem with this quote from the article:
"Younger kids don't know that they can die from this, that it's a very dangerous activity," Shapiro said.
Are they saying that a 10 year old doesn't know that they can die from not breathing????
Should that be something taught to kids?
Sad for the family.
Personally I think a 10-year-old has to be cut some slack for doing something stupid, he's still just a kid. I would be much more inclined to ask where the heck his parents were, as some others have suggested.
Yes, one of the questions is: where are the parents?
I am pretty sure when I was 10, I knew that if I stopped breathing, I would die. It takes a little common sense. Kids need to learn to write and know the alphabet before 1st grade, some pre-schools even have kids on computers. How can we always cut some slack for everybody? Do we wait until he drives into somebody in his car when he is 18....or shoots somebody when he is 21? Where does it end?
