This parent was right to complain about this cheer. My only concern is for the other small children that are left on that squad to do this horrible cheer. Where are their parents? How can you be ok with children of any age doing a cheer such as this. I heard the radio interview with the mom and the coach or whoever that lady was. She called the mom a lunatic, but I am quite sure she was the lunatic. She said that the part about the back aching was meaning that their backs ache because they were standing on the asphalt for 2.5 hours. Hey I have an idea maybe it isn't such a good idea for small children to be doing anything for 2.5 hours. And besides that I am quite certain that nobody that hears the cheer will think that is what is meant by that. It is just another example of parents/adults thinking it is cute for children to do suggestive things and then they wonder how they go pregnant at 14 years old. How about we let children be children and not force them to grow up any sooner than they have to. I wished that all the little girls could loose their "spot" on this squad so they wont be subjected to that terrible woman and her crazy antics. The other parents should remove their children immediately. If they wish to do this sort of thing, then great enroll them in a gymnastics class and then let them go home and play with dolls like little girls should. I am proud of this parent and just wish more would follow in her footsteps.
