In North Carolina, a 5-year-old girl was suspended from school for playing with a stick that school officials said looked like a gun. She was playing a guard in a playground game with other children. School officials said that the girl posed a threat to other students when she made a shooting motion, which is a violation of school policy. Free Range Kids' Lenore Skenazy says that it turns normal children's play into crimes. Believing the worst ignores the simplest explanation. Children play games to learn about life.
