Parents who have taught their three young children how to pole-dance have insisted their family hobby is ‘perfectly appropriate’.
Jake Night and Lindsey Teall, of St Louis in Missouri, who are both exotic dancers, practice the risque sport with Aiden, 11, Lindsey’s son from her first marriage, and their two daughters, Alaura, five, and three-year-old Rosalyn in a pole they’ve had installed in the middle of their living room.
The family showed off their moves on This Morning on Wednesday and were soon slammed by This Morning viewers, who branded it ‘disturbing’.
The couple have been teaching their children pole-dance moves since they were born and Lindsey continued to do it throughout her pregnancies.
They insisted there was nothing sexual about the sport and they make it age-appropriate for their children.
This Morning viewers, said the parents should be ‘ashamed’ for teaching their parents the raunchy moves.
One tweeted: ‘What am I watching on #ThisMorning. Seeing a little girl with her legs wide open on daytime telly, actually disgusting. the parents should be ashamed.’
‘Ok that’s disturbing,’ another posted.
A third said: ‘Pole dancing kids is just wrong on so many levels.’
Do you think it is an appropriate activity for young children?
