Would You Allow Your Child to Be Part of a Ruse?


One child was used for her looks, another for her melodic voice. Lin Miaoke, 9, performed "Ode to the Motherland" for a picture-perfect opening ceremony at the Olympics. Only the song did not emanate from her vocal cords, but those of 7-year-old Yang Peiyi. The switch-a-roo was pulled when officials deemed songbird Yang as not cute enough to command the stage.

While it's unclear if the children or their parents even knew about the ruse, would you let your tot take part in this type of charade?
