one of my toys when I was a little kid was an old single shot shotgun that had a piece of wood jammed into the chamber.

Well, lets see the school have taken out mot of the play ground equipment because some one might get hurt. The kids can not run, play tag, dodge ball or just case each other around. Most completive sports are gone because some ones feeling might be squashed so we now are having seminars on how to play.
Why not let kids be kids and figure these things out.
It used to be as easy as go out side and come back when the bell rings.

have to take courses to learn how to teach kids how to play stick ball (or curb ball, or step ball or wall ball). wow what a disturbing concept, having to teacg kids how to play.
i’m 55 and we younger kids learned the rules by watching and then playing with the older kids. and we made adjustments for number of people, playing area (pitcher acts as first baseman, right field hit is a foul ball unless a lefty is at bat.) and i was a good hopscotch player too. also played chess as a kid, sitting in the shade of a tree in the summer.

My knees were always skinned up as a kid, especially in the summer. My Levi’s always had holes in both knees. We bought iron-on demin patches, and just patched the jeans during the summer, and bought me a new pair when school started.
