This can't be true! Is it?

If so the US has gone insane.

Alex I just remembered about an Australiean 12 year old beat up on an Australiean 16ish year old.
The older kid got fed up and flipped his bully breaking his leg. IDK what became of that... Do you know what happened after that?

That was on the US News

@Sweetkrissy. Same here.


I heard their taking lot of fun games out of school. Like tag, dodge ball. (That's the only two, I think of, they took out of school.)

No wonder, kids are getting away with murder. Cause, if parents spank them. they get reported it. Next you know, parents can't give their kids time outs. People will think, that abuse. banghead

Tag is out because you might trip and fall and the "safty" chips might poke your eyes out or you hit your head on concrete.

NO DODGEBALL!

Rules :
1. Don't aim for neck and up
2. Have fun
3. use many versions

HOW CAN YOU TAKE OUT DODGEBALL!?

Next thing you know they will say No Jumprope. You might trip and fall.

Thats rediculas

lol the new world is weird but the texting thing I understand (but why in class? It makes vibrations) Once a kid in my class was called by a kid in the class next over and her desk started shaking laugh3 My teacher then took it and called the girl who called that phone and the teacher in the other room picked up ROTFL Those 2 girls had their cells taken away for the rest of the day but it was a funny Language class.

It's slightly exaggerated for comical effect, but really, not by much.. the world (well technically, technology) is moving forward at an alarming rate.. so fast in fact, the human brain can't (or even better phrasing - just doesn't WANT to) keep up with an all-instant-gratification world.. I like watching my garden grow a little bit every day! I like watching the kittens get a little bit bigger and stronger and fluffier each day! And my brain surely does NOT need the added stress of paying an arm and a leg to spend an hour channel surfing through 5000000 TV channels only to come to the annoying conclusion that THERE'S STILL NOTHING ON!!! I guess what I'm saying is, nothing happens naturally, like it's supposed to anymore.. everything is bigger, better, faster, stronger, more, now! Now Now NOW! I miss the simple stuff.. I would give ANYTHING to go back to 1977, and be 8 years old again for just a day! But make it a Saturday, so I can watch good old Saturday morning cartoons with a big bowl of Frankenberries for breakfast!!! Then when cartoons are over and I'm full of Frankensugar energy, I'll go ride my bike and play ball in the street 'til I hear my mom yell from the next block. "GET YOUR A** HOME NOW!!!" Now THAT'S a wonderful world..

I remember, watching Saturday cartoons in the morning. If, it was a nice day. I go ride my bike, go to the playground in our apartment complex, go swimming on hot sunny day. play with friends outside. School was fun, when i was kid. Even I didn't like the school work. We had chores at our school. Almost every kid had a chore. If, you didn't had chore to do. you sit quietly read a book or quietly talk to your friends. Going to the mall, was fun back in 80's & 90's. now, theirs no spark at the mall.

I hear ya! Kids today have cartoon access 24/7 and any cartoon they'd like to see at their fingertips in Youtube. There is no "anticipation" or waiting for a special day. Saturday morning cartoons were awesome! Friday evening I would look for the TV section and gather with my cousins to go over the schedule of what cartoons we would watch LOL They were so many and having one tv we would have to make an agreement so as not to fight when I wanted to see Rainbow Brite or Jem and the Holograms lol Anyways, we'd start off really early, 5:30 or 6am. We would have either cereal or McDonalds breakfast. Around 11am, they would be over and then we'd spend the day playing outside with the kids in the neighborhood and not come inside the house till the street lights came on lol



In the 80s, you would SEE KIDS PLAYING in the neighborhood. Coming together and just playing, being kids. Today: I hardly see any kids playing outside... but then again... the world has changed. Pretty sad...





This is a picture in the mid 80s of me, my bro, cousin and a neighborhood kid (red & blue) who came over to play, after cartoons were over lol
