Of course, when kids parties are involved, you have to have several games. The list of games was alright until some parents saw something called “President” where one person pretends to be an unspecified president with bodyguards and he is to be shot with nerf guns.

For kids, it’s just fun, but they don’t realize what they are being taught subconsciously,” says Ohio resident Julie Berghaus. Others also agreed with her sentiments regarding the party:
