It turns out that there is a lot more than bacteria, oversized mice and pizza going on at the place "where a kid can be a kid" -- police departments across the country are reporting a significant amount of disorderly conducts and battery going on amongst adults, according to the Wall Street Journal. In fact, many cities' law enforcement officials say that adult fights at Chuck E. Cheese's outnumber the battles at local restaurants and even bars. Say what?

Click to see what momlogic found lurking at Chuck E. Cheese's.

Cops chalk up the adult squabbles to a combo of alcohol, noise, big crowds and heightened emotions around kid birthday parties. Some of that we can understand -- after all, who hasn't wanted to punch a rude parent at a birthday party? But acting it out is another story.

Sorry but ‘they’ got it wrong. Its not the combination of alcohol, noise, crowds, and heightened emotions that are causing this increase in disorderly conduct and battery at Chuck E. Cheese. Its because the people of our once great and civilized nation are getting more and more desensitized by the increased exposure to violence on tv, in movies, music videos, and video games. The more violence our nation gets exposed to the more we exhibit violence and accept it as the norm.

well honestly I take my kid there on a rare occasion but…. I don’t for the life of me understand why alcohol is served? It’s not a place for adults in the first place so why is it there? Maybe someone can enlighten me?

Structure of behavior begins in the home. If bad behavior is allowed it follows a child everywhere. Alcohol being served at places for children is a personal choice for the parent who takes them there. This is supposed to be a place where children can relax and play - have you seen the amount of adults who are pushing the kids away to play the games? Children to a certain age mimic what we show in our own actions - maybe some parents should take a good look at themselves before pointing fingers.
