Kids @ Burning Man?

Postby soupman » Tue Sep 14, 2004 11:26 am

This year I noticed a large number of families on the playa, with more kid-oriented camps and attractions scattered throughout the site. I think it's great that these parents are bringing up their kids with the open-minded attitude that is many times required to attend and that they are exposing their kids to an environment that is open-minded, selfless and positive, but it seems as though it's definitely raising some issues with what is acceptable for them to experience (profanity/censorship, public nudity, "racy" camps and other adult topics). Do you think the presence of children on the playa will lead to tighter restrictions on self-expression? Do you think children have a place at an event that is full of such wonderful hedonism? Parents- Did you find yourself monitoring your kids a little more so they didn't see some of the more adult things? Do you think there should be certain areas set aside for more adult-themed camps so parents know not to take them there? Do you think Burning Man would be better off as a "No Minor" event?

Just curious...
