If you are in Chicago, check out this play. I saw it last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Last performance on Friday. It sold out last week, so get your ticket request in pronto!
On Halloween of 1961 (Camelot was all the rage on Broadway), Professor Marius Mandragore and his apprentice Dolores Dion encounter strange forces, which cause their time traveling mansion to be transported back in time to Coburg in 1839. There they meet Prince Albert who is in need of a tutor, ...

Scary.
I can see why Coke is getting involved. They can put a meter on it and create scarcity because you can't just grow your own.

I know this happens.

What I don't know is how to handle it when the "offender" is underage as well. They may not know what sexual behavior is either. They may just have an impulse and a sense that it has to be kept a secret and then act out without any context at all. It is not always a clear cut case of abuser and victim. They steal cookies from the cookie jar. They have sex with their baby sister.

I've talked to adults who were sexualized as children and they have no desire to seek "justice". They just have this life-long confusion hangover that they can't do anything with. And they don't want the Parents to know.

I don't know what to feel or think about this.

But when the kids are still kids, and the activity comes to light, there needs to be some kind of therapeutic process available. When juvenile detention is the only option for someone's 4-10-year old child, secrets will continue to be kept and real solutions will never be found.

My Mother was put in charge of her 2 younger brothers as a child and this set up a very bad cycle that has never been fully resolved. That's all I'll say about that.
