Three Delaware day care givers — Tiana Harris, 19, Lisa Parker, 47, and Estefania Myers, 21 — have been charged with organizing a type of baby fight club where they encouraged 3-year-olds to fight for their entertainment. We now know the third rule of fight club after you don’t talk about fight club you don’t talk about fight club . . . you don’t use pre-school toddlers.
The three defendants were employees of the Hands of Our Future Daycare in Dover and were arrested after a cellphone video of the fight was passed around. On the video, one of them yells at a toddler not to pinch — only punch.
The women were charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangering and conspiracy. We have also seen parents teaching their own kids to be combatants (here and here and here).
It is still not known which of the women not only wanting to watch toddlers fight but wanted to record it for continued enjoyment later.
