Overly Protective

I didn't work at a school with a lot of overprotective parents.  Mostly they told their kids to kick the asses of anyone who messed with them.  We did have a few rules at recess, like no tackle football.  Although I wouldn't say that these parents are the models for good parenting, it might be even more disturbing to hear about this kind of thing.   No games at recess?  Kids need games.  And by the way, kids need to skin their knees.  It builds character.  And makes for good scars and stories later in life.
