When To Dress Your Kids As Breaking Bad

Scenario 1: The children don’t know what Breaking Bad is, but you, their parents, think it would be hilarious to dress them up as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman for Halloween. While it’s not particularly unusual or alarming for parents to use their children as unwitting props for their own amusement, you should remember that in this case you are dressing your children as murderous methamphetamine producers. Just remember that. That’s kind of a weird choice. They are your children. But OK. You make the call. They are your children.
Scenario 2: The children don’t know what Breaking Bad is, but you thought it would be hilarious to dress them up as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman for something other than Halloween. This scenario is similar to the previous scenario, but it’s a little weirder, I mean, Halloween is one (already questionable) thing, but this is what? An off-season costume party at a friend’s house? Maybe you should just get a babysitter. Purim? Come on. I’m starting to think you have an unhealthy obsession with the show to be quite honest. You couldn’t even wait for Halloween, as if Halloween is even an appropriate time? Look in the mirror.
Scenario 3: The children are huge fans of the show and picked the costumes out themselves and you, as a parent, didn’t want to get in the way of their youthful joy and creativity. Well, here we have a whole bunch of problems. You really need me to list them out? Save it for Judge Judy. I’m just going to call Child Services and let the state handle it at this point. It’s sad, and lord knows the foster parenting system is in no way perfect, but at a certain point you just have to recognize that there’s nothing more you can do and pray that they grow up safe and loved.
