When they asked the little girl where her home was she replied - Where mother is

Las Vegas and Kids Don't Mix


kids and vegasIt's funny how the things we think are the least controversial, turn out to be the most.

A few weeks back, I wrote an article for the Now newspaper on my recent trip to Las Vegas. 

Much to my disappointment, I witnessed several parents dragging their kids along the Vegas strip at all hours of the night.  I was horrified to say the least.....

So when I wrote the article against parents taking their kids to Vegas, I thought most parents here would feel the same....not so.

It opened up a whole debate as to how parents viewed Vegas. Some felt it was definitely ok for kids to go to Vegas with them. 

The article gained a lot of attention and went "viral".  It was published in dozens of papers throughout CanWest publications across Canada.  

I received feedback from Quebec, the Praires, NWT, Alberta, Ontario, well, you get the picture.  It was even published on Canada.com, for people online to submit their opinion on the topic.

So has any of the feedback changed my mind?.............Nope. ;)

And if you have an opinion on Las Vegas and Kids- by all means, email me.  I'm always open to hearing from parents on both sides of this debate.
