To: Proverbs 3-5
Robyn Hooker, principal of Kent Gardens Elementary School, has told students they may no longer play tag during recess after determining that the game of chasing, dodging and yelling "You're it!" had gotten out of hand. Hooker explained to parents in a letter this month that tag had become a game "of intense aggression."
Maybe they'e playing full body contact tag.
You're still "It" unless you flying-tackle little Billy.
“Maybe they’e playing full body contact tag.”
That is what the problem is in this case. Tag is one thing, slamming kids to the ground is another. As is grabbing them by the extremities or the neck to effect a fall.
