Kapow! Superheroes kicked out of class

Kapow! Superheroes kicked out of class
By Nick Squires in Sydney
(Filed: 20/08/2003)


Children in Melbourne have been banned from dressing up as Batman, Superman and the Incredible Hulk because schools say the action hero costumes encourage aggressive behaviour.

At least 10 childcare centres have declared themselves "superhero-free zones", claiming that youngsters who don capes and masks are more likely to end up wrestling, punching and karate-kicking unsuspecting classmates.

The head of one childcare centre, Madeleine Kellaway, told the Sun Herald newspaper: "There is a lot of violence involved, where you get wham-bam aggressive behaviour." She said banning the superhero costumes had encouraged more creative play.

Judy Radich, the president of the non-profit organisation Early Childhood Australia, said it was perfectly normal for children to don masks and plastic capes and emulate their favourite action heroes.

"In my day it was cowboys and Indians. Acting out fantasies is part of growing up," she said.

Are kids showing up to school dressed like this randomly, or is this pertaining to Halloween or something?

I'm glad to see that Australia is just as loopy as the united states with these funny rules.

Its true!
I remember as a kid...7 or so, i went to the he-man, masters of the universe play, and they sold plastic he-man swords. During the intermission i went down with all the kids, and before i could say skelator, a full on battle had begun, with kids beating each other with these swords! I fought and beat my way out of there, but kids had bruises, cuts, injury from falling, etc....

I recall that in elementary as well around halloween, but not as bad.

You can dress up as Yahoo Serious dressed up as Ned Kelley, and that's it.

Remember during the whole school shooting thing, about the 3 or 4 kids who were suspended from kindergarden for playing... cops and robbers! The little kids were saying, "bang, bang! I shot you!"

what they need to do is get kids into the new breed of comic books where all of the conflicts are cosmic and the intrigue is much more mental / spiritual, like adam warlock and thanos. or at least heroes that use energy powers...

Why not give the kids LSD instead?

And, dude... I'm not even sure what this means?  And you better not be knocking baseball! :smile:

I hate baseball. I did have free tickets to the Diamondbacks yesterday, but couldn't go.

Couldn't find anyone to take the tickets, either.

Well, I grew up watching my Rangers suck, so it is not that hard for me to still root for them, even though they are horrible.
