Around the World: Toddler Fight Club
Toddlers are a bit primitive in their habits, particularly where other toddlers are concerned; their tendency to throw a punch when cornered is legendary. And apparently, according to several daycare workers, also entertaining.
As CNN reports, several employees at a Delaware daycare are now facing criminal charges ?after police got hold of a ?disturbing? and ?shocking? cell phone video that, authorities say, shows two toddlers taking part in a fight the workers had organized.?
The video shows three-year-olds fighting, and the background commentary indicates that it had been staged by the adults?in the nature, unbelievably, of a toddler fight club. In fact, during the video ?[one] of the children attempted to run, but one of the teachers pushes him back into the fray,? a police spokesperson told reporters.
The accused daycare workers were arrested and are awaiting trial for ?assault, reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child and conspiracy.?
