A lot of teachers are speaking out against fidget spinners, and after seeing this, I don't think most parents will approve of them anymore either. 

As a child it was hard for me to sit still in class, or anywhere for the matter, but I just don't see how these fidget spinners really help calm kids or adults with ADHD. A lot of studies are proving that they don't really help, but that doesn't make them any less of a hot ticket these days.

A quick peruse of fidget spinners on Amazon will show many listed as suitable for kids 8 and above, but not all of them have choking hazards listed in the description. Do your kids have fidget spinners? May want to warn them not to put them in their mouth, so you don't have to deal with the scary situation one mom and her child just did...
