Sex Bracelets?

Remember those cheap jelly bracelets Madonna, made famous in the 80's? I do, I loved them. Well they have made a come back, and in a maybe not so nice way. Because I homeschool, I admit I am a little behind the trends of public school kids. It seems that a new game, started in Florida of course, is called Snaps. This game involves these lovely jelly bracelets, and is sweeping the country. Of course there are kids all over youtube saying they don't partake, and it is only kids who are already sexually active. However I have friends who have kids in public schools, and not only is the game prevalent there are lots of kids who take part. These bracelets have been banned by parents, and schools, maybe harsh, maybe not, you decide. Each colored bracelet has a different sexual meaning. A boy, or a girl, comes up and snaps the bracelet off, and you are supposed to perform the act that goes with the color. Why do I even know about this, you ask? I first heard about it from friends, with kids in public school. I work for a text service and kids ask about it all the time. Now could be harmless curiosity, I mean kids are normally curious about everything sexual. This game starts as young as nine, or ten years old. Just be aware of it, and know what your kids are doing, and where they are going. If it does not bother you that your child, as young as 9 may be taking part in sexual activities, then you probably only read the first sentence anyway. Here are the colors of the bracelets, and what each means. In the second video watch how the young girl, who appears to be about 12 imitates a blow job. I don't know to me, it is disturbing, and I probably would not let my child wear them. If you think I am crazy that is fine, but we had an 11 yr old boy over to play the other day, and he told my 5 yr old daughter she was sexy, and cute. I was very disturbed, and my husband almost banned him from the yard. Our children are becoming more aware of sex, and having sex, at younger and younger ages, why take the chance that these bracelets really mean nothing, or mean a lot more than we are willing to admit, or deal with?

I got this information here

You decide how you want to use the information, then watch these videos with kids talking about them. There are several on youtube, you can look up and view for yourself.

I thought I'd heard about this years ago, back when I didn't plan on having kids. Remind me again in a few years when my daughter reaches school age ;)

OMG! I'm just so shocked! I'll have to guard my daughter closely then. I'd rather educate my own daughter about sex at the right time rather than allow her to explore with friends through sick games.

Thats pretty disturbing!! Wonder if that goes on round these shores (The UK that is)

I had never heard of it until recently either. I figured it was because we homeschool, and I am out of the loop. I know parents have always said this, but I do not understand why kids would do such things.

Wow ~ my kids are grown, so haven't heard anything about this??!!! Will share for sure with my friends who still have kids in school. Yes, I agree it is shocking! Good for you for sharing - I'm sure there are many parents out there who will be glad to be informed on this subject!

I hope kids will learn how dangerous these kinds of activities can be.
