Parents & Teachers:
This morning I saw something on the news that really disturbed me, so I'm passing the word along. It was talking about those metal water bottles with small openings. There have been a number of children, who have stuck their tongues into the opening and haven't haven't been able to remove them.
Apparently, the way the tongue goes in causes such suction that it cannot be removed. The tongue swells and can cause choking or the tongue can even die. Please go to this website to learn more about it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2259604/Girl-emergency-surgery-tongue-gets-STUCK-metal-water-bottle-scary-trend-threatens-kids-country.html
Of course, these bottles are used millions of times a day with no problem. However, I wouldn't even risk a million to one odds when it can be so easily avoided by using a bottle with a larger opening.
Your thoughts on the matter????
