Mom Writes Permission Slip To Let Her Kids Play Like Kids

Between helicopter parenting, kids staying indoors instead of going outside to play and schools instituting stricter policies regarding recess, the young folks can't have any fun these days.

So when Julie Walsh Holcombe found out her sons got in trouble at school because they were climbing a tree and playing like normal kids she sent a strongly worded memo and a permission slip to the teacher and guard involved.

Julie's kids look too old to be getting hassled about climbing trees, but now they have official permission to have fun!

This should also include,

"Should my sons be doing said activity and should, as kids are want to do, one of them fall out of said tree and break an arm, I, the parent herby resolve the faculty and school of all responsibility because they, and I, know that both my sons were just being kids. As kids are wont to do."
