Did you go to a catholic all boys school by any chance?

I don't think it is possible for a teenager to NOT even give one little 'hello' kiss to their so at school. I think you're being a little harsh. It would have been impossible in my high school. Imagine being there from 8am to 3:30pm and not being allowed to show pda in the 3 or 4 breaks you have out of class? Sure keep it studious in the classroom but out of it i don't see anything wrong. I mean for heavens sake, i'm not suggesting they have a full make out session and have sex on the swing set!

In other countries kissing is a custom like shaking hands, a second thought it not given to it, it is normal proper greeting behavior. It is human nature to want to interact with others that you are in relationships with or to help someone feeling sad, can students not even show concern for others that are really sad and need an encouraging touch like a hug? What next, no high fives, or looking at each other (I remember the car rides as kids, mom, she is looking at me! Make her stop!)

it called work, We do it every day, we work every day without going around kissing each other and you dont get 3 or 4 breaks a days, if someone cant go that long without kissing someone then they need help

i just think its silly not to to be able to hug someone who may been it, etc,
or what about sports, you see them hug, are they going to get kicked out also?

Last i checked, high school, and paid full time employment were slightly different. Same goes for teens v adults. Two completely different things.

high school is there job, not there to kiss each other.:lol3
the teen years which means they are still kids, and not subjected to the same level of freedoms that full adults have. so correct it is 2 different things.

people need to learn restraint and what is accepted in public, and what is not.
kissing during school time No, hugging yes(or should be)

While i can understand where you are coming from, i do not see the harm in giving a loved one a kiss. It's not crude, it's a gentle pda. I did not have the luxury of dating until i was 21, i can only imagine how hard it would have been if i met my so in high school to not even be able to give him one little kiss in a whole day!

That's sad that you can't give someone a quick hug

Now as far as the kissing goes, a peck, no problem, but if theres one thing i hate to see in public, and believe me i'm no prude, but it's when you see a couple who's lips are locked and you can hear the smacking noise

Get a room!!!

The really sad thing is that the article describes her as giving "a grieving friend a hug". Whoever came up with that rule needs to take a long, hard look at themselves if they think that is inappropriate.

My husband and I work together every day and when we break off to go to our desks we give each other a quick kiss. Nothing gross or graphic just enough to know that we love each other.

IMO this PDA policy is really harsh. I think the school should back off. However, usually when schools go to this extreme something stupid has happened in the past. I'd like to know what that was.

You give kids an inch and they take a mile.
And there WOULD be full make out sessions.

High school isn't a job! A lot of students are there way longer than 40 hours a week, and sometimes every day-- it's not just a job, it's their whole life almost. The social aspect of school is as important as the academic, and for some students, more important.

My guess is, nobody's going to enforce the rules anyway. We had some like that, and I don't remember anyone caring.

Well, I don't think people should make out in public, I give my children a quick hug and kiss, as they get out of the van at school, we are a very huggy family, If I go into the school to pick them up, they give me a quick hug, I think a quick hug or kiss is fine. My youngest, hugs her friends hello and goodbye, I am not going to tell her, that showing affection is wrong.

Our school implemented that rule when we were in jr. high. We all thought it was the most ridiculous rule!!!! We all hugged eachother just to piss off the people in charge of serving detentions. Very few people ever got in trouble for doing it just because a lot of the teachers thought it was dumb and everyone would have ended up after school.

Rules! Rules? What are rules? Rules don't apply to ME!

Well as i didn't have a relationship till i was 21, that one screwed me up, and my father is a complete who also messed me up, i think i have a right to kiss my fiance in public. I don't want to feel like it's wrong to show affection to my so because other people have a problem with themselves.

yep sounds like a job to me, Jobs kinda do that.
if you show up at school to have fun your doing it wrong.

I said i was 21 when i first got into a relationship, i am not 21 now. Thought i'd correct you on that.


I did try replying a couple of days ago, but have been having problems with the net and just got home from Tristans.

The only time hugging should be not allowed is if it leads to "Kick Me" signs being placed on the students back

I somewhat agree with you on the kissing thing Bruce. IMO a peck is one thing, but most high school students that are dating don't just do quick pecks. Some of the major couples in the high school where I went to could of had their own porn videos just on kissing
