    Why? It is silly. People don't send their children to someone else for homeschooling. It would not be called homeschooling? So if the child gets hurt at home the parents will sue themselves?

    Girls got hit in the face as well. So what? Welcome to middle school.

    Personal attacks? Thanks for bringing down the intelligence level.

    Your talking out of your backside Manta and most of your posts in this thread is just mindless drivel which seem to come straight from a episode of fox and friends. As to your point about it being ok for a child to be smashed in the face in recess. " Hi Mr and Mrs smith this is young Tina's teacher from school, sorry to inform you that your daughter suffered a broken nose and a mild concussion today whilst walking across the playground, in future can you please inform young Tina that she should spend her entire recess watching for incoming balls so she can avoid this".

    Absurd.

    Yes that is not a personal attack on you. It was in reference to your statement. Huge difference.

    Moronic post at best. Nothing but hyperbole based on? Nothing. Not even worth responding to.

    1.ok it was offensive because you used the word gay in a negative way and i'm sure gay posters on here would take offence.
    2. Why is that moronic? An 11 year old me could easily break your nose with a football.
    3. What is it exactly I don't understand about schools?

    Play and sports balls should be banned, but there certainly should be a required background check before purchasing one.

    Why should kids have balls when there isn't a single male in education administration these days who has any?

This is a woman who when me and my sister were 12 and 13 gave us money and sent us off wandering around the wildwood NJ amusement piers until they closed. This is a woman who used to let me play in an old shed full of glass doors because I had fun breaking them and no one wanted them. This is a woman who at the age of 17 had my grandparents drop me and my sister off in NYC all alone for a guns and roses concert in madison square garden. This is a woman who let me stock pornos for my dad's video store from the age of 15. Now this crazy woman gets on my back because I wacked the kid on the head with a damned nerf bat because it makes him feel bad when he is not allowed to cheat in games. I am so glad the little prince now has a new daddy who loves giving him a bit of fatherly rough housing he so glaringly needed. I am so waiting for the little prince to become 12 because I get to take him to play paintball. I keep telling mys sister to just put the little prince in a god damned dress because he is a little wussbag.

    People have lost their god damned minds trying to keep kids so safe from any sort of pain. Let the kids play some dodgeball or some red ass with lacross balls. The wimpy kids can go pick flowers or write poetry or whatever else they do when they are not trying to hurt each other. Don't get me wrong, the world needs flower pickers and poets, but not every kid needs to be coddled and wimpy. And remember this comes from a guy who wears little frilly dresses. man up for christs sake, and this goes for some of the girls too. Learn to rely on yourself and how hard you can play. Stop lowering the bar to accommodate those who should be doing something else.


    Holy **** your mom is my mom! This woman could give a crap about her own kids but her precious grandchildren are like fine china. Recently I took my daughter and nephew with her to a farmer market and the kids got balloon animals. Well my crazy nephew was messing with his, after I told him to stop, and it popped and he started crying so I told him to suck it up and stop and my mom said and I quote "a balloon popping is traumatizing for a child" a god damn balloon popping!!!!! I am never gonna let her live that down, that is some of the stupidest **** I've ever heard.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    So what? I am not talking about any gay person. I am not referring to any gay person. If they want to be offended well it's on them. This does not change the fact you made a personal attack, period.

    And they could break a leg playing on the monkey bars. Or break an arm playing teather ball. Kids are going to get hurt at some point. It is part of growing up. Taking prescausions are one thing, taking away games because someone might get hurt at some point? Why don't we have them sit around and sing songs for recess.

    Schools here are not the same. Never have been and never will be. You don't seem to understand this.

    Absurd.
    She is on a play ground, she should be looking around. Duh. Situational awareness.
