I did see a couple of public sex acts on art cars that were passing by that made me think "Gee, would I really want a kid to see that?" but then again, I didn't want to see that either so... just had to look away and keep walking. If I can do that, then so can a 4 year old.
Good point. I simply don't see that much of anything that happens at the event is worse or even as bad as what happens in the default world.Grizelda wrote:On the other hand, I think sex and intoxication are probably not the worst things for young impressionable minds to be exposed to. I suspect that hate, violence, thoughtlessness, and rabid consumerism are probably more toxic, and more common on the playground than at Burning Man.
Another good point. Parents who don't want to do this shouldn't be forced to.Grizelda wrote:Logistical concerns keep me from even getting to the point of considering the moral appropriateness of bringing my child to Burning Man, though. Taking care of an active toddler takes a lot of energy, and with the logistical challenges of the playa, such as distance to potties, heat, and the effort and attention required to set up and tear down a camp, it seems like a recipe for burnout to me. Other people must obviously have more energy than I do if they're doing this.
you can camp with us, so far I have no other friend with kid(s) confirmed,
but the more kids and parents the easier it gets to take turns.
and I found the potties not to be a problem.

My kids are coming so I would like to be as informed as possible. So here goes- What do "candy flip", "Y" and "VVMC" stand for?

Thats the line in question.

Nope. Again, Radical Personal Responsibility is the order of the day here.
