On cops and robbers...oh, dear and bubbles...horrors
Posted by Supertradmum
We had cowboy and cowgirl hats, holsters and play pistols, fringed vests, boots with logos...the whole enchilada.
Some kids played cops and robbers. We never hurt anyone, or anything, except the dandelions we landed on when "dead".
Now, we have a school district in Maryland suspending boys for playing cops and robbers.
Good grief. Read this below. I grew up getting the Jack and Jill Magazine, an example of this is below. We were and are normal, well-adjusted adults.
But, we also have a sense of right and wrong....
This is like a friend of mine who did not want her boy growing up with male stereotypical toys. So, the child had no cars or trucks.
One day, in his little chair, at about age two and one-half, he chewed his piece of toast into a car and started saying "zoom-zoom". She gave up and went back to common sense instead of ideologies in raising her kids.
Cops and robbers teach children good and evil. Americans are becoming ridiculous.
Here is the "gun" which caused another incident, here depicted.
