Check this out, a school in Attleboro, Massachusetts has banned tag and other chase games on the school grounds! Because children could get hurt!
Kids get hurt all the time. What's a little scrape or a bruise? Come ON! Maybe we should just ditch physical education altogether. I'll bet the health bills for all those out-of-shape kids would be a lot higher than any health bills they might get because of injuries sustained while playing tag. Are these people for real?
I've been hurt more often at sports like soccer, basketball, volleyball, pinball etc... than by playing tag. Oh, wait, I've never been hurt playing tag. At least not enough for it to be memorable. I HAVE however broken phalanges and sprained things in the above sports.
The world just gets weirder and weirder. No wonder so many are homeschooling!
