In my experience there are a LOT of 18+ players that are very immature, egocentric, and elitist that it is dangerous to play angainst them for all involved.
Certainly getting the parents involved is a good idea, that's the way we do it here. Considering the youngsters are already playing, don't you think it is better for the hobby if they are nurtured by responsible players in a controlled environment? With the proper safety equipment, supervision/instruction, and playmates they are not going to get injured or be playing in a place where the police will become involved. Consider yourself at a crossroads where you can either ignore or intervene in, something that is already going on. My 2 cents.
