Not the Brightest Bulb in the Lamp Store Dept.

AS A FORMER YOUNG PERSON, I know that some parents these days very much want their children to consider them "cool" and "groovy," even as their own parental instincts warn them that being "cool" and "groovy" ought wait until their offspring have reached majority.

I would offer up this Associated Press article as prima facie evidence that alleged attempts at "being with it" aren't merely ill-advised, but can potentially result in criminal prosecution, viz. and to wit:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A mother faces criminal charges after she hired a stripper to dance at her 16-year-old son's birthday party. Anette Pharris, 34, has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and involving a minor in obscene acts. The boy's father, the stripper and two others also face charges.

But wait, there's more! According to police, Pharris not only took photos at the party, she took the film to a local drugstore for development.
