What is wrong with you!

Someone please tell me what has happened to Wreck Rooms, Basketball Courts, Cheer leading Try Outs, Chess Clubs, etc....I mean I know I am not the only one that is thinking this but what is wrong with you kids today and feeling the need to harm yourselfs and others? 

We have all seen the epidemic of countless youtube videos where kids are sniffing paint, glue, ammonia, red pepper and now they have the "Cinnamon Challenge"..."The cinnamon challenge is a challenge that became an internet meme in which a person attempts to eat or swallow a tablespoonful[1] of ground cinnamon in under 60 seconds without drinking anything.[2][3][4] While the challenge appears to be very simple, it is actually very difficult because the cinnamon quickly dries out the mouth,[3] making swallowing difficult.[2] The challenge has been around since 2001, and increased in popularity in 2007.[5] By 2010, many people had posted videos of themselves attempting this challenge on YouTube and other social networking websites.[3] The cinnamon challenge continues to be an active challenge,[1][6] with Twitter mentions peaking at nearly 70,000 per day in January 2012.Wikipedia

Now I recently heard this story and come to find out it was a challenge on Big Brother.  I think it is just stupid and irresponsible to even think this is alright.  A young lady was just ran to a hospital because she couldn't breathe and had asthma which made it worst.  This brings me back to the subject of watch your children, pay attention to the sites they are on and if need be if they set up a account on a social site don't allow  them on the computers unless you have access to that account so you can monitor it.  I have a 9 year old and he has asked me if he could have a face book page because his friends had one...No absolutely not.  No one under the age of 18 should have a FB page or a youtube page because of stuff like this.  I just do not get it, you need something to do get a job and babysit, walk the neighborhood dogs, start a lemonade stand, do something productive with yourselves and stop with these idiotic stunts.
