    I am stunned.

    Beyond that there is just nothing I can say.

    Add to this instances I have heard where (UK I believe - same syndrome) - they banned schoolyard skipping!!! Oh my - someone might get hurt.

    "Nanny - ya hear that?" .... good, can't have any injuries. Must protect the kids.

    Oh and another - CA if I recall - but anyways - the word ''fail'' is to be done away with - too injurious to a kid to hear he/she has failed!!

    Brace yerselves folks - it's gonna get worse yet!

    Did anyone take the poll?

    Do you think schools should ban tag if students complain of being chased or harrassed against thier will?

    Yes: 587 (20%)
    No : 2421 (80%)

    I vote that we bring back dodge ball, Gawd, what will the clover crunchin' birkinstock wearin' hippies think of next? Problem is that only two parents called in to disagree with the principal's decision. If you don't act against things like this then what do you expect?

    I can see it now. "OK kids, gather round, I need everybody to take a stack of these release forms and get your parents to sign them. You must have these signed before playing any games at recess. Just to summarize we no longer play Tag. Red Rover and Crack the Whip are out because they could possibly cause boo-boos. Oh and Mother May I will now be called Parent or legal guardian May I".

    It's a self-esteem issue.

    In a game of tag, somebody has to be "it".

    The poor child so designated suffers an irreparably bruised ego, and is thus scarred for life.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Guess kids aren't fat any more otherwise they wouldn't want kids to stop running would they?

    you know, if you don't want to play then don't tag back
    do what you can with what you have where you are at (theodore roosevelt)
