Billy Liar: SlothB77: America, where sack races are still more popular than soccer.

Pretty sure they're talking about England here. but still, it's nice to see the spread of amateurism into "professional" journalism

"The eagerness may have stemmed from non-other than posh and becks which saw David and Victoria Beckham take part in their son's school's parent relay race last year".



We apologise for the fault in the article. Those responsible have been sacked.

I think the word "overprotective" doesn't quite cover it.

The correct term is "clinically insane."

When you want to stage manage every one of your kid's childhood experiences so that they're never disappointed by anything, you're mentally ill.

At that point, it's not even about your kid. It's clearly about you.

orclover: I take my kid to a boxing gym 3 days a week so he can win the war he has on fear that the bullys in his school have waged on him. I get a lot of shiat from a lot of parents for not just teaching him non violence and not telling him to just take his beatings like everybody else.


I plan on having mine take self-defense classes. Actually, I'm going to take them as well, if I can find a place that has a large enough room to do a sort of "all-ages" thing (I'd like to be as involved as I can with activities and whatnot). Thankfully, I still have a few years, since he is only 5 months.

Unless I read the wrong article, it's about crazed parents training *themselves* in sack racing so they will win against *other parents*.

That said, if I see another parent training for a sack race, I'm going to point and laugh.

That's a little more than over-protective.  When we, as a society, are teaching children...CHILDREN...what do to when in the sack, well that's just wrong.
