#6 In this day and age, we are inventing new ways to abuse our children. Just recently, it came out that a daycare center in Missouri had hosted a fight club during which the toddlers were urged to beat the living daylights out of one another
A horrified Missouri mother is suing her sons former daycare center after two teachers hosted a fight club and encouraged the toddlers to beat each other up.
Video has since emerged of the disturbing December 2016 incident, which shows children pounding each other to the ground while others break down in tears.
Nicole Merseals 10-year-old son filmed the horrific one-day fight club, which took place at the Adventure Learning Center in St Louis, on his iPad.

No. Your site really sucks, by the way.
Or maybe we just didn’t have the internet and social media to IMMEDIATELY let us know what is happening where.
MANY cities are MUCH safer than they were 20 years ago.
NYC was COMPLETELY CHANGED by Rudy and is SO MUCH more safer.
Even de blasio has kept on a semi tough police commissioner, shocking as it is.
Things have always been bad and good.
Now we just get to find out the bad real time and in doses we never could before.
Th network news was an hour. They had to squeeze in the worst crimes.
Now we can read ALL DAY about different horrors.
Same tune. Just Multiple ways to listen to it now
When my great grandad was a kid living in Queens NYC at the age of 8 he’d get on the subway by himself and go all over the city. Nobody ever bothered him. Today that same aged kid couldn’t walk ten feet from his house before CPS is called.
He just recycles other people’s articles. No original content, has two blogs and posts identical stories sometimes and if he did some research, he’d find that google penalizes you for that.
Here’s a duckduckgo search for the article title.
10-12 sites with the exact same article.
That’s all he does is push his blog here. No participation, just blog pimping.
Or maybe we just didnt have the internet and social media to IMMEDIATELY let us know what is happening where.
Right. In fact, I would go one further, even before the was social media, many community officials did not go running to the traditional media either, to air their laundry. They avoided it. So while violent crimes, rape, abduction, and all these things happened and you knew about them in your own community, you weren’t hearing about them happening across in another town, let alone in some other State. Not everywhere, but I think in a lot of places there used to be a propensity to keep bad news under wraps back in the day.
Yep. Had there been internet 100 years ago, this post title might be “12 ways how your neighbor abuses his cows” with some I would prefer not to know.
I heard a snippet the other day about using “screen time limits” on children; I couldn’t agree more.
Abraham Lincoln’s favorite video game was Pac Man.
Beatles, peace movement and marijuana clowns grew up and became today’s politicians thusly they swung the pendulum into the leftist/ muslim coalition’s hands.
When I was a kid there wasn’t any such thing as a “day care center” within 100 miles of my home.
We know schools STILL do this and in a big way.
Also maybe fear of reporting back then.
I know my mother’s father would have been on the 6pm news for the way he treated the kids.
Mean as hell Mafioso.
But that’s going back to the ‘30s when it was much harder for a woman to take her kids and leave.
I’m surprised to hear that a number of women I know STILL think that they have no out.
The more times change, the more they remain the same in some ways.
Whether one’s heart is in it or not, these traits, when properly considered and addressed, will redound to better living all around:
Best to start with oneself and condition before God.
Those people would be like 70 now :)
There’s a HECK of a lot of Dessert Storm and Iraq/Afghanistan war vets who are in the house now.
You’re talking ancient history man :)
Beatles? The peace movement? Pot?
That’s in a time capsule somewhere pop. :)
“Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.”
Ancient Greece had children’s fight clubs.....

That was called “recess” when I was growing up.
Try monkey bars where we played “King of the Hill”. Or, how about “Dodge Ball”. Loved it. Lighten up, people
"And then the grown-ups moved in the monkey bars....The monkey bays came in...we lost 124 kids in the one day!"
