It`s just senseless. It`s not going to make the kids stop rough-housing.It`ll probably just make the kids save everything until after school, where they can beat kids up without teachers getting involved. B-|
Yeah, those kids should set up a game of Red Rover just to show up the school administrators.
BTW, pippo90, this iz teh interwebs, pplz liek to spel liek this. U mite want 2 check ur own spelling an grammar, lol.
Bah. That`s so lame. These kids are going to be whiny and high maintenance when they grow up.
my generation better set things straight! god, people want to treat little kids in such a way that they`ll grow up to be pricks, and unsociable ones at that!gahmakes me mad >.<
it also seems to me like some of you don`t know how to spell and use correct grammer
and in the eastern US we call it Chicken, not ostirich fighting, no offence but the european way of saying it is kinda weird, ostiriches cant mount each other (no pun intended) (yes u can put a chicken on a chicken, but it probably wont work too well)
Jeez, I got knocked down and all the fun stuff when I was on the playground and I grew up fine from that. (Thank you Red Rover!) I sorta miss recess now.
If we try to over protect our children, they never learn their lessons/will be messed up adults. >_< Oh I just can`t wait for my generation to grow up and fix society. (Well I can hope.)
I remember breaking pretty much each and every bone of my body probably twice in my childhood, altho I did survive, so common kids won`t have any problem. pff overprotective parents + dumb asses = those policy xD
I learned in my psychology class that kids (mainly boys) need to roughhouse a little bit...it`s just part of the way they grow and play. So depriving them of this is just wrong. Of course it can get out of hand, but with adults around to watch, it`s highly unlikely that they`re going to accidentally kill each other.
They can play flag football. Not touch.
i`m just waiting for the day when people aren`t going to be allowed to express themselves anyways, cicra. 1984-esque... honestly how are these kind of policies even possible? people should be causing an outcry...
Instead of taking responsibility for the students and actually trying to teach them, lets just ban everything instead!
no wonder kids come out of school with no clue as to how the real world works.
Seriously though, kids should be allowed to be kids. Its all the fault of the `sue` culture, and the `where theres a blame theres a claim`. Why di people want to wrap kids up in cotton wool? Why not just let them enjoy what little childhood they will have?
@ Bujold: I LOVE OSTRICH FIGHTING! >=]Especially in the water =]
As for tag, change it to flag tag. Everyone but one person gets a flag, just like in flag football. The person without the flag is it. They have to get a flag from someone else, and then that new person without the flag is it. The only thing that really changes is the "no tag back" rule becomes "no flag back".
And in 6th grade, we were always "ostrich fighting", where a person would ride on another person`s back (when the "mount" is standing), and you`d try to push the other rider off to the ground. And you know what? Teachers didn`t mind. In fact, the only deal they had with our sport is that one time, a guy took off his shirt because it was hot. Teacher comes to our part of the playground, "Put your shirt back on", "Ok", teacher leaves, fighting resumes.
How on earth did children survive into adulthood a mere 5 years ago when such measures weren`t in place.. wait..
