I read a news article awhile back about an elementary school kid being suspended from school for biting his pop tart into the shape of a pistol. Yet dodge ball -with its infamous tendency to shatter eye glasses and cause bruising and skin burns- is still part of the gym curriculum in many schools. So which do you feel holds the greater potential for real danger to your child - a pop tart bitten into the shape of a pistol or an aggressive game of dodge ball?

I know what you mean, Cantuhearmescream. When I was in ninth grade a boisterous boy hit me in the ear with the ball, so hard I was deaf for over a day in that ear. I think teachers that encourage the game are either have a mean streak or indifferent.
