  1. It would seems that kids today should have more fun than 20+ years ago. It seems to me that what kids at play today lack is value for themselves and value for their playmates. It also seems to me that parents or guardians are falling short and not cultivating those values in the kids. The toughness of competition and the drive to win or be the best seems to let loose a kind of animalistic behavior where we see it play out on the play grounds. The “human” restraints that should helped to control that degree of aggressive behavior was never instilled nor nourished.

  2. I teach and I must say an emphatic NO. Fun is not what it used to be. I get to observe youngsters at “play” every day and what I see is frightening. I often have to stop and say “Please do not kill him or her” only to be told, “Teacher we are playing.”
    ” When did kicking one’s playmate to the ground become a form of play? From my vantage point there is little difference between playing and fighting and for this reason it is not surprising that these “play” sessions erupt into mad bull raging fights.

    Perhaps a return to “Plum in the Middle,” “Rounders,” “Bat and Ball,” Dog and Bone,” On the River” just to name a few may teach our youngsters the spirit of good peaceful play. Perhaps too there would be fewer fights on our school’s compound.

    On that note, I do feel that our schools are lacking in playground facilities and that this is an area for serious investment.
