I'd say to the extent in which their kids know about common sense, but each parent raises their child differently and there is no right or wrong when it comes to raising a child. But common sense consists of your background,society, environment and so much more that it makes these kind of situations like tide pods all the more worrying, when youth still don't understand the severity of it.

I'll admit to not knowing the severity myself, truth to be told. How many children die of consuming Tide Pods each year? Is there a concrete, quantitative source I could refer to in order to understand the extent of this problem? Maybe state level poison control statistics for the US? I mean, even one death is one too many, obviously, but is there a reliable chart, or table, or some other representation of this data I could look at that you've already seen? I don't mean to sound like I'm grilling you, and I'm sorry if I do, but this is really something I've given only limited consideration to.

Don't worry about it, I'll look in to the data and stats as well. Websites and Media sources often mix up data and stats so its pretty difficult to find the the actual estimates but I'll try my best to find the most reliable.

Thanks in advance for your efforts, and I look forward to seeing your findings. I will say, however, that if you don't hit the "quote" button while responding to me I won't see that you've responded to me. I'm afraid I'm rather reliant on CR's notifications system to tell me when and where to respond to things, so please bear with me.

Each state has a separate Poison control from the next,which makes sense due to the amount of people calling, and making sure everyone gets the help they need. Each State's most current data has only been updated to 2016. While the American Association of Poison Control which releases yearly statistics and specific call number amounts has also only released its data up until 2016. Seeing how these two sources would be most reliable, trusting anyone else's data wouldn't be smart. Which leaves us at dead end for now, until the most recent data is updated.

That's fine, and your research reflects my own examination of who the primary sources for this sort of data would be. Now, when did this whole Tide Pod challenge stuff start up? 2015? 2016? 2017? Maybe even only in the last couple months? Do you know when the Ur Example happened? I'm trying to get an idea of what time period I should reasonably be looking at.

Oh, so the pre-existing warning labels aren't good enough? Never mind the infamous pod eaters' being teens and adults who already know laundry detergents aren't food items. I imagined that too many naïve and downright dishonest people are blaming the company, rather than old-fashioned jackassery, so now the business is trying to damage control. The pods have been sold since 2012. We've had dishwashing pods since, at least, 2004. It's absolute bullcrap that their appearance is so enticing that it took years for an "eat me" switch to suddenly flip in the heads of adolescents and adults. The dipshits participating in the pod challenge are doing it on purpose; no amount of warning labels and product remodeling will solve willful self-harm.

oh my gosh I just witnessed history! I've always wondered what stirs these warning labels such as chap stick labels that this is for lips only not around eyes, curling irons telling us this is an external product only and now tide pods stating this isn't eatable product. however I believe it's always been on there, they make them kid proof with a what if swallowed warning, guess they're going to have to make the letters bigger so the idiots will be able to read it. but with idiots, we're just cleaning out the fish pond, Darwin wouldn't be proud.

Damn, they were great for Halloween gifting to trick or treaters plus they made terrific stocking stuffers at Christmas time too. I found them great for getting banned from familial parties that involved kids and adventurous alcoholics mixing frolic and narcotic together. Sometimes it's more advantageous to stay the hell home.

The Challenge itself started in the middle of 2017 but then started to sky rocket in popularity by the end of 2017. Sorry it took awhile to respond.
