We're raising a generation full of weak and stupid children

They've taken away dodge ball, they've taken away red rover.. they've taken away tag. Let's just go ahead and chain them to the ground so they can stand around and look at a wall. That seems perfectly safe. What a bunch of nutless, butthurt parents out there now.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- An elementary school has banned tag on its playground after some children complained they were harassed or chased against their will.

"It causes a lot of conflict on the playground," said Cindy Fesgen, assistant principal of the Discovery Canyon Campus school.

Running games are still allowed as long as students don't chase each other, she said.

Fesgen said two parents complained to her about the ban but most parents and children didn't object.

In 2005, two elementary schools in the nearby Falcon School District did away with tag and similar games in favor of alternatives with less physical contact. School officials said the move encouraged more students to play games and helped reduce playground squabbles.
