My First Grader and His Darn Rules!

My first grader (nickname Deep Thinker) always pays very close attention to the rules and almost never breaks them. Here is an example that illustrates his enthusiasm for rules gone overboard.

He told me that he didn’t play with his friends at school last week because they played tag, but tag isn’t allowed.

So I asked, “Are you sure? Maybe it’s okay as long as you don’t hit too hard when you tag another player??”

He said, “I guess you need to read the RULES again. Remember MOM, the ones you SIGNED at the beginning of the year?!” Hm. Guess he told me.
