Why You Shouldn't Play Hide and Seek
« on: February 02, 2013, 01:23:02 PM »
Hey, I have a great idea. Why don't we just take away their childhoods completely?

Recently it was banned from a playground in England, the topic of a sex convict’s confession in New Zealand, the subject of a child’s funeral here in the United States and the reason for a 911 call in my own back yard.

Can you guess what it is?
Hide and Seek. Yes, hide and seek...

Whether you advocate for playing hide and seek or not, there are principles of the game worth considering:
 • Hide and seek promotes secretive play. The nature of the game is to not tell anyone where you are and what you are doing.
 • Hide and seek asks children to hide and not come out. The nature of the game is to ask children to hide so they can’t be found.
 • Hide and seek sends mixed messages. The nature of the game asks children to do what we’ve always told them not to.
 • Hide and seek requires mind skills young children may not have. The nature of the game requires you to differentiate between hiding for real and hiding for pretend play.

The author concludes: When it comes to hide and seek, what you choose to do it up to you. What’s important is that you’ve come to your decision from an educated and informed place.

But whatever you do don't allow it simply because it's fun.

These also must be Banned ......

Patty Cake - promotes bad eating habits. It also stereotypes bakers as being men.

Hop Scotch – is starts kids on the road of marking their neighborhood with graffiti.

Tag – “You’re it” singles out a player which strikes against equality . “tag” is also slang for graffiti (see hop scotch).

Red Light / Green Light – promotes horrible driving habits.  Rabbit starts when lights turn green waste fuel and contributes to global warming. Sudden stops at red lights increases rear end collisions.
