So kids are inside rather than outside terrorising neighbourhoods knowing the law can't touch them? Big fat deal, let the fuckers get fat.
The UK’s children’s minister has slapped MySpace and other social networking sites for their role in the fattening up of the nation's youth. Beverly Hughes, at the launch of a report by think tank Demos on how children are being squeezed out of public space in the real world, said children were being pulled into virtual worlds …
They only wrap the kids in bubble wrap on the 'lose weight by wrapping up in clingfilm' principle. Obviously it's as much use as a waterproof teabag.
I don't see why it's so difficult to find playing areas for kids....
1) Stop bloody selling them!
2) Knock down all the old unused crumbley buildings, and sell for housing developement.
3) Stop selling them.
4) Reclaim some of the safer areas for playing fields.
5) Stop selling them.
6) Teach kids about safe playing in school.*
7) Stop selling them.
8) If they want a meal when out get a cornish pasty, not a bleedin' mucky D**.
* s/(Rivers are dangerous.)/$1 So, if playing in one - pick a shallow area, during good weather, and make sure you are out with friends/
** Okay, I'm picking on mucky's here, I actually have a problem with people thinking any similar fast food is either a meal or is good quality. It's just that mucky's is an easy target. Oh, and it's off the topic of playing fields.
Where's the fat kid icon? A broken swing maybe?
I completly agree with Anon Coward on this one. Whilst watching TV and playing on consoles / pc's all day / night isn't the best thing for kids, it certianly isn't the main factor.
I'm a lazy person, don't exercise very often, and i eat a lot of fast food junk, also play lots of PC games and watch lots of TV, yet i'm not fat at all if anything i'm underweight!
Kids today are just generally fatter, as it seems to be the way of the world. Parents are also not helping matters with the overprotection that seems to be everywhere now a days!
Every bloody one of them seems to get themselves chauffeured to and from school in stupid size cars that make them think they are small!
Fat knackers should walk to school, anything less than 3 miles is fine as that's what i did twice a day and anything more well get a bus, they be cheaper for sprogs! It will take longer of course but then that will keep them busy and not in my way.
Oh yes they will get fatter slower as well. Lazy bloody kids and lazier bloody parents!
P.S (I don't care how busy you say your mornings are, if you don't work its your own fault for being busy and if you do just kick em out the door at 8.00 am to walk and thank me for making your life less busy by making you aware that one of your parental duties isn't being a chauffeur for you fat lazy spoilt kids)
