I was watching television when I saw a commercial for Crayola Color Wonder, a product which uses inks which only show up on special paper. This way, the kids can write all over your house and there will be no “mess.” The commercial shows kids bragging how they used finger paint on the rug, colored on the couch in the living room, spread glitter on their “mom’s” bed, and painted their shirt.

This product is wrong in so many ways. How about telling the kids not to write on the damn couch, or better yet, supervise them yourself.

Have we sunk so far as a society that we create toys which encourage kids to engage in bad behavior because we are too lazy to teach them good behavior? (I know the answer, but had to ask anyway.)
