    I guess eating paste is now out of vogue as well...

    What is a kid to do on recess? Sit or stand idly.

    Back in the day, I used play soccer, football, dodgeball, basketball, playground activities and even experienced a little female "companionship" during recess. I was quite the "playa" in the elementary school. Man did that change.

    Playgrounds in the PNW are often under giant outdoor roofing systems.

    100% silly. Guess what parents...kids will get mildy hurt and injured while they are growing up. That is part of life. When did children become so fragile?

    Unless you plan on wiping their rear ends and cleaning their houses when your kid is 50 years old you better let them experience life a little when they are children and not build this rediculas wall of fear around them.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Anyone remember when breaking your arm was viewed as cool and everyone wanted to sign your cast?

    I thought this had to be a gag. Unreal.

    You could swallow crayons and paint and get sick and glue makes you high...

    Can't forget about Science classes....things could blow up, and those scapels during frog and fetal pig disections....boy, those could put an eye out or cut a finger off...

    As someone who works in the insurance business, I can tell you I'm honestly surprised this didn't happen long ago.

    Just picture yourself liable for all these things and suddenly you see it.

    Would you insure a $500,000 house in Florida for $1,000 a year if you were responsible for paying the bill if a total loss occurred?

    Would you insure a school that had 200 kids running around on a playground playing football with no protective gear on? Or tag?

    It sounds like schools are getting uptight, but I think they are wising up.

    Schools are being uptight, but parents that sue the schools because little Johnny ran into little Sam and fell over need to be taken out back and roughed up a little bit. I am not old by any means (22), but we were allowed to play basketball, football, soccer, tag, dodgeball, you name it.... not once can I recall anyone getting hurt. Its a joke. People will sue anyone over anything these days. Ridiculous.

    i dislocated my ring finger on my left hand at least 6 times over several years playing football at recess and basketball in gym. and rarely did a year go by where that would be the worst injury.

    Another Willett parent, Celeste D'Elia, said her son feels safer because of the rule. "I've witnessed enough near collisions," she said.
    How many kids in the world die from near collisions every year?

    No Celeste, YOU feel safer.
    Here's an idea, put your kid in a plastic bubble until he's 18.
