Children in Connecticut School Can't Hug, High-Five or Play Tag or Help Each Other Off the Ground

What an over reaction. So I guess the children can't play football, basketball, baseball or any other sport that may expose them to touching others. If this nonsense continues we might as well just sit home and do nothing. The world is to dangerous for us to go outside. We must be protected from ourselves. Children will be afraid to touch each other. Learning what is and is not appropriate is a part of growing up. Now all touching, good and bad are off-limits. This country is creating a society of neurotics.

Connecticut School Bans Physical Contact

East Shore M.S. Outlaws "High-Fives," "Hugging" And Horseplay Of Any Kind; Violators May Face Expulsion

MILFORD, Conn. (CBS) ― A Connecticut middle school principal has laid down the law: You put your hands on someone -- anyone -- in any way, you're going to pay.

A violent incident that put one student in the hospital has officials at the Milford school implementing a "no touching" policy, according to a letter written by the school's principal.

East Shore Middle School parents said the change came after a student was sent to the hospital after being struck in the groin.

Principal Catherine Williams sent out a letter earlier in the week telling parents recent behavior has seriously impacted the safety and learning at the school.

"Observed behaviors of concern recently exhibited include kicking others in the groin area, grabbing and touching of others in personal areas, hugging and horseplay. Physical contact is prohibited to keep all students safe in the learning environment," Williams wrote.

Students and parents are outraged. They said the new policy means no high-fives and hugs, as well as horseplay of any kind. The consequences could be dire, Williams warned in the letter.

"Potential consequences and disciplinary action may include parent conferences, detention, suspension and/or a request for expulsion from school," Williams wrote.

Many think the school's no tolerance policy goes way too far. Others said it's utterly ridiculous.

"Now it's almost as if it's a sanitized school. Where you have to keep your distance from everybody? And that's not what school is about," one father said.

"What if they are out on the playground at recess, or in gym class?" parent Kathy Casey wondered. "You know, gym class is physical."

Having a young daughter myself, this kind of shit totally makes me irate! Kids will be kids and accidents will happen whether we like it or not. Why in anyone's right mind would they try to take away a childs natural affection, the competive spirit or sometimes discord with another student? Oh.....that's right.....they'd rather have a bunch of zombies marching to the beat of the politically correct. This is indoctrination to the fullest degree.

They've already taken away tag with a ball, throwing snowballs and wrestling in the school yards across the country. Don't let the kids have any fun for God's sake, they might actually grow up and be rational, fun loving, well adjusted, freedom loving, curious students and we can't have that now can we?

Kinda reminds me of an old joke.

Kid: "Dad, why am I going around in circles?"
Dad: "Shut up, or I'll nail you other foot to the floor."

Why not just put all the kids in separate padded solitary confinement cells and let the teacher telecommute to the individual cells. That way they'd grow up without the severe mental trauma of having ever been touched or receiving any social contact other than school propaganda - that would help them grow up mentally healthy right?
