Pow!

Did you hear?

It is no longer permissible to finger shoot someone and say POW!

I know.

What is the world coming to?

A school in Maryland suspended a six year-old for 1 day for doing just that.
The family is allowed 10 days to file an appeal.

But, come on.

First it's pretend guns.
Next you won't be able to play air guitar.
After that, who knows?

You just may not be allowed to use your brush as a microphone.

Whatever happened to telling the kid that it isn't nice to do that and to just stop?
Apparently, there was a similar incident so this needed dealt with.
That's why you tell them again to stop.

Six year-olds don't always listen the first time they are told something.
Two to one the kid thought he just got a day that he got to stay home from school.

If the kid doesn't understand the punishment or why what he did was wrong,
what good did all of this do?

And isn't this whole thing just a bit over the top?

  3. Depends.
    Was his finger loaded?
    And was his school a designated "Finger Free Zone?"

  4. Kids don't get to be kids anymore. Playgrounds are disappearing, and kid stuff is now considered a serious crime. Now than can stand around, standing around is fine for now. But one day some kid is going to fall down from standing around, and that will be out of the door.

  5. We're too darn pc about everything, we're making our kids go crazy. this is so over the top, it's almost beyond ridiculous. THe kid's parents should sue the school district for something or other, that's the only thing that school districts understand: money!

    1. Hi, Pearl. We've been headed that way for some time now. I think we may have just rounded the bend to idiot land.
