Here you , folks. Let’s give this mom some ammo! – L
Dear Free-Range Kids: My son’s school district has just instituted a no running policy during recess. I am, of course, appalled by this, feeling that the kids need to be able to blow off a little steam during those 10 minutes of their day. Plus, kids need more exercise, not less. What’s next, no running for soccer/baseball/lacrosse practice?
Every other parent I have spoke to in our district about this is also opposed to the policy. I am ready to organize a fight to get our kids running again. I was hoping you would have some advice of the best plan of action. Would a petition, letter to the editor, barrage of emails, all of the above be the most effective? Thank you for any advice. – Rarin’ to Go Mama
What a dangerous activity these children are engaged in!
