    Default School bans handstands....wdyt?

    Ridiculous!

    Unfortunately this is not the first school.

    Cartwheels/handstands have been banded at some schools since 1995.

    Its so sad that kids can't be kids!

    However I do know of one girl who died from falling on her head while doing a cartwheel.. So I can understand the schools decision.

    They should ban shoelaces too (tripping risk), pencils (too sharp), bananas (skin is a trip hazard), School ties (strangulation) and paper (laceration risk.)

    It's banned at the kids school and if the teachers see them doing it rather than reprimanding the children they give them another activity to do as a distraction.

    Do kids even realise they do them? I swear they are an involuntary action of children, like breathing and skipping.

    I must be tired. I read the title as "School Bans Husbands" and thought that was totally ridiculous!! Still think its ridiculous now that I read it properly
