Just when you think some parents are over protective some school steps in to prove that they are even more so. According to this article
some schools are banning games like tag and others that might involve physical contact. What next? No more after school sports like football, basketball or wrestling? Maybe we should ban running as well. I mean really people fall down and hurt themselves running all the time. Especially in cross country running.
What happens when some administrator realizes that students are sharing the same air and that some of them may be spreading germs! Shock! Horror! Maybe we should require all students wear masks to go with their knee and elbow pads!
Students need to run and play. By their very nature they are going to run into each other. Kids are going to fall down. it's part of life. Sure we want to protect them but how far is really reasonable? Is it just me or are things really getting out of hand?
