Put them in bubble wrap, too

Parent: "They're not allowing running on playgrounds? During recess? What is that?"

Friend: "I don't know. They took away dodgeball, tag, kickball, and other stuff we used to play. I think it's stupid."

Parent: "Are kids never supposed to learn to get hurt or go to their limits? We used to have hot metal slides and sharp corner toys everywhere. If you were hurt, you cried a little bit and went on your way."

Friend: "I know, man. This whole 'everything has to be 100% risk-free' and 'age of entitlement' thing is going to destroy the future. You can't tell a kid no anymore."
