This video far surpass the ol' poke it with a stick test. Are the parents bad for allowing her to handle a dead animal, or good for exposing here to a small dose of death ?

Why the hell would i let my kids play with dead animals?? Exposing them to a little dose of death?? wtf?

Dead animals can carry desease, and the kids might pick that up. So no, i would not let my kids play with dead animals.

VVV

Yeah, I have to admit, my kid playing with a dead animal would probably send me potty.
I'm all for kids getting germs and building immunities, but playing with dead things takes the biscuit.
Look, learn but don't touch.

" This is a parenting win. One point for handling the situation calmly and reasonably, one point for letting her explore and learn about death in a gentle, non-traumatic way, one point for getting rid of the thing before it got icky and giving her a bath afterward, and five points for having the most awesome kid who ever cuddled a corpse. "


I felt the same way until i read the comment above form another youtube user.

This does go way past the 'stick test'. There is no way you should want to pick up or play with anything dead. Nor should you be letting your child do that. Aren't humans supposed to have a predisposition for keeping distance from dead things, just incase there is a tranferable disease and such?

It's a really bad idea for a lot of reasons, mostly because dead animals are breeding grounds for bacteria and diseases.


Also, why is this in the UFO forum?

Wow this video has serious potential to become an Internet Meme.

Now just seeing a dead animal I don't know if I would allow my child to handle it due to disease or infestation, but if I had descent insight as to the nature of the death and the timing then I might consider it.

When I was young, about 12-13, for about 6 months we lived out in the woods. I would go exploring for hours and it was the greatest place I ever lived as a child. I saw many dead animals out in the woods in all kinds of conditions and it honestly changed me. Death doesn't sadden me. I mean I am sad that that creature will no longer be part of my life, but I know that death is meant to be. I learned that death is just the price of life and that everything dies.

So in some respect, I think that facing the fact of death head on and understanding it is a good thing.

I cleaned my first dead rabbit at six.
For the last twenty years my children both help clean dead deer, pheasant, and other animals.
we look at and touch the lungs, heart, kidney, liver.
the only thing these parents did wrong was they forgot to clean the animal and cook it for supper.

Why is this even a question?? Of course not there are so many reasons not to. The main one is disseases and crap the dead animals carry
I'm sorry but that's all I'm saying on the matter.

Oh wow!! No my girl's and my son do not like to see dead anything, so allowing them to play with a dead animal well they wouldn't go for it. Have these people ever heard of maggots, and flies, and lice?? Very, very gross, and just beyond stupid! Whatever!

I work at a funeral home and we keep gallons and gallons of disinfectant . Anybody who lets their children play with dead things, is seriously stupid.

I think it all depends on what sort of adult you are trying to raise.
Ted Bundy used to bring road kill home to the house and study it.
So for some kids I think it's alright.

It's not correct because these animal may have some diseases, so it shouldn't be allowed. Also the parents of that kid are a little irresponsible.

Who gives a f*ck. If they're that stupid let them go nuts, in the long run it'll strengthen the gene pool.
