Are Schools Being Silly?

When is this going to stop?  According to this article, some schools are starting to ban games like Tag because of potential safety and self-esteem problems.  It is getting to the point where kids can’t be kids anymore. Kids can learn from games like this such as the concept of predator and prey as suggested by the article.

The next game they are thinking about banning is Red Light/Green Light.  The reason they are banning this game is it discriminates against deaf children.  I believe that they can pick up on the concepts of when to stop and go by watch them when the person caller out colors turns around.

Adults need to let kids be kids and have fun.  I know this is theory week and we are supposed to focus on that, but I had to write about it.
