    Yeah I know, my friends have kids. With small children you have to watch them like a hawk. But it seems like the people making this viral are teens or older.

    People are doing this for internet fame, not because they legit want to eat them.

    The bill comes amid growing concerns that children are eating the packets and teenagers are engaging in the Tide Pod Challenge — eating them and posting the videos online.

    All for stupid teenagers killing themselves.

    As a parent I feel this is a parenting problem.

    My 9 year old would never eat a tide pod. Because we told her about an idiot teenager who ate one and has internal burns from the bleach.

    I've explained to all of my kids how dangerous putting non food items in their mouth is.

    We've explained to them that sodium is toxic in high doses and that taking shots of soy sauce is a great way to get hypernatremic and die.

    We've explained to them that not everthing on the internet or tv is true and particularly that any information coming from a commercial or from youtube has a much greater chance of being false.


    If you explain things to your kids, they learn.

    Also if you raise them Buddhist and don't teach them about a Christian themed afterlife, when you say "Don't do this it could get you killed" they actually listen a lot better.

    One good solution to this and to many other problems would be to reassign shitty teachers to be janitors so that kids aren't stupid when they age out of school. You can't do much about stupid parents, but you can eliminate stupid teachers.

    Recently, one local teacher won a $25k award and he went from being an engineer to teacher and he said you can't teach each kid the same way because they don't all respond the same way. It takes a smart and dedicated teacher to be effective in making kids smarter.

    Not making detergent look like candy would also help.
