Hopefully you wrapped your kids in bubble wrap this morning, before you sent them off to school.

A school district in Mercer Island, Washington just banned kids from playing TAG at recess.

A spokeswoman says they outlawed Tag because, quote, “Students are expected to keep their hands to themselves.  The rationale behind this is to ensure the physical and emotional safety of all students.”

So apparently all these years, Tag has been a game of physical and psychological torture that could destroy kids for life.

Parents are complaining, of course, because that’s what parents do.  But also because this REALLY seems ridiculous.

One mom says kids need the opportunity to play whatever they want at recess, because now, quote, “[My son] has been spending most of his recesses wandering around with his friends talking about video games, which is the last thing I want.”

Do you think this school is going to far? Join the conversation and let us know!
