From I Own The World:
A primary school has come under fire after banning its pupils from playing cops and robbers or any playground game which involves ‘imaginary weapons’.
School chiefs at Worcesters Primary School in Enfield, north London, outlawed the games over a fear that they will upset other children.
But parents at the 470-pupil school have reacted with outrage, saying that playing cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians was ‘part of growing up’.
Father Mark Ayers said his seven-year-old son came home last week after being told off for playing with a pretend gun.
The 38-year-old, of Enfield, said today: ‘This is just completely over the top. We all grew up playing cops and robbers and my son loves playing pretend army games – all kids do.
‘This just seems like a huge overreaction.'
