Parents Discouraged From Bringing Babies To Summer Olympics

by in Parenting

If you are attending this summer’s Olympics in China – please keep these guidelines in mind.

Umbrellas are in but crossbows, banners and nudity are out, while babies are frowned upon and lip-gloss will be limited.

Organisers of the Beijing Olympics released their “Spectators’ House Rules” today together with the launch of a “Good Habit for a Good Games” campaign — the latest step in a bid to ensure that the event proceeds without anything that could embarrass its Chinese hosts.

Lip-gloss, fountain pens and sunscreen will be allowed but only in small quantities. Animals, other than guide dogs, are prohibited. Parents will be encouraged not to bring babies.

I wonder what the issue is with babies? Could it be that they’re noisy and they could disrupt the athlete’s? No further explanation was given… SOURCE
