First It Was the Thin Mint Melee

Daily Mail Online: Marauding parents in Easter Egg hunt rampage: Out-of-control adults push children to the ground, steal their buckets and leave one four-year-old 'bloody' at chaotic free event  

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

This is truly obscene.

Had they asked me, I could have given them the benefit of my experience planning Easter Egg hunts for church. Yes, even at church we have pushy parents (and they're not even stopping to ask themselves why they're bring pushy--for a bunch of plastic eggs filled with Starburst and Jolly Ranchers). First of all, you have to enlist the help of every able-bodied adult to man the lines. Second, age segregation is a must (preferably, have the real young ones search in an area separate from older kids). Third, be ruthless about enforcing a 10-egg limit (especially with the older kids). Finally, only allow parents of the under-five-year-olds to enter the field of play.

/Be prepared to have to mollify parents who don't understand why their precious snowflakes can't break the rules.

Sunday School.
