I was just reading the Dear Heloise column in my local newspaper. A mother wrote in to say that, when planning her child's birthday party, another mother commented that her daughter had been confused by a pinata at a birthday party she attended. She is taught to not hit, but now was being told to hit something that looked like a character in her favorite tv show. The mother who wrote in said we need to think about the inconsistencies we present to our children. Heloise printed the note without comment.
I personally think children are smart enough to know the difference between hitting people & hitting a pinata.
What do you think?
