School Recess Today

May 16, 2014
By

The other day I drove by one of our local schools when the kids were out on what we would have called the playground in my day.  What I saw was not what the fitness experts want to see kids doing.  There were a lot of kids standing around in small groups talking, a few kids were walking around a track, and a few were tossing a ball.  Back in my day, we couldn’t wait to get to recess or noon break so we could play baseball or kickball.  Before you hit the playground, you already had your teams chosen and you wasted no time getting the game started.  The game went on until, in my case, one of the nuns rounded you up and sent you back into the building.

I know most schools today have a no-phone policy, but I still go by school buildings and see kids looking at something held in their hands.  Maybe they are so used to using their phone that they look at their hands even when they don’t have a phone in it.  I bet one thing, not many of the kids today go back into the building with any sweat beads anywhere on their body unless it is 95 in the shade and they are sweating just from standing around.
