Let Children Be Children and Allow Them to Play Out on their Street!!
Change their rule that "children do not play on the street," at Calico Crescent in Stalybridge.
Why is this important?
Children need to play outside! They need to be allowed to be children!
In a day and age where computer games and a sedentary lifestyle are the norm, and obesity rates are rising, it is ridiculous for the RMG to try and implement this rule.
On a 'family' estate, where lots of children live, it is completely unreasonable to ask that children don't play out together, and enjoy the area that they live in.
These are good kids. They are not doing any harm, or being naughty or disrespectful. They are simply being children and having fun.
Whilst children should be appropriately supervised and stick to rules and safety measures, they shouldn't be couped up like prisoners. The world is full of enough zombies who stare at screens all day and night and I used to love playing out on our road as a kid. Some of my happiest memories were made that way. If you agree with even a small part of this, please sign the petition before this country becomes even more ridiculous!
