Posted:I'm going to start this off with a warning.

This is *NOT* for the faint of heart or stomachs.
It is quite graphic actually.
This is also *NOT* for extremely empathetic people, you will be beside yourself...seriously.

I've heard of this happening before. Here in the U.S. a few years ago a 10 yo boy was tried as an adult for the murder of one (possibly more) young children by hitting him in the head with a large rock. He did it because he was bored.

I thought that was appauling but this?
I am a constitutionally strong person, I can watch/read/take alot..and this got me.

Seriously, read it before deciding whether or not to watch the video.

A different write up on it

I've searched Snopes and a few other reality check sites. It seems, so far, this is real (I had/have my doubts, more I think to keep faith that no one would do such a thing).

Hoax or not, boredom?
Why couldn't they play a video game, watch a movie, read a book?

WTF????

sick mad cry

Posted:MRC, absolutely.

However, I believe the question isn't about if they have the problem solving skills to handle them, it's about if they have the mental fortitude to handle what stumbles in their path.
And things will.

When Noah was young we were arriving home and one of the house mates was playing Resident Evil. A glimpse at the screen, literally a peek as we passed, set him off with a zombie obsession we battled for a long time. It was incidental exposure and I think that is what Ben is talking about.

BUT, that exposure has made Noah stronger. He is capable of seeing/handling more. He is not afraid of the dark or bumps in the night.

I think we were all exposed to something that terrified us when we were young, or traumatized, us as youth and we've gotten stronger for it.

I've seen/known sheltered children.
I'd *never* want my child to be like them.
There is no one I trust as much as myself to help Noah make these decisions.

Obviously I agree.
How far should aides go though?
