This year’s annual Easter egg hunt in Colorado Springs, Colorado was canceled because of misbehaving parents last year. Many parents entered the roped-off area reserved for the children and helped them collect the eggs. This ended the hunt in seconds and left many children with no eggs.
Some of the observers last year said the the egg hunt was an example of parents who refuse to let their children grow up. The offending parents were afraid to let their children learn that they will not always get everything they want, so they intervened to make sure their children did not fail at the Easter egg hunt.
