Stephen King's New Show Sends Elementary School Into PANIC After Fake Gunshots Go Off!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsLegal MattersBookzScary!

under the dome shootingStephen King may be known best for his truly terrifying stories, but something tells us this is NOT the way he had hoped to scare anyone EVER!

A TV adaptation of the author's sci-fi/horror tale Under the Dome is currently in production in Wilmington, North Carolina, and apparently, the CBS show's crew neglected to inform an elementary school a few hundred yards away from their set that they were filming a scene that involved a fake gunfight!

So when shots rang out, the

Recess Is Endangered!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFamily

Recess

Remember that old expression, "Playtime's over"? Sadly, for many kids these days, it is!

A new study has found that 40% of elementary schools nationwide have either eliminated or cut back recess time!

BOO!

Recess was what made elementary school tolerable and the recent reduction of free-time in elementary schools may be contributing to the overwhelming amount of childhood obesity we're always blabbing about!

It's pretty silly that labor laws require ADULTS to have a 15-minute MINIMUM break for every 4 hours of work and a 30-minute lunch for every 8 hours, while CHILDREN are getting stiffed on recess!

Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, a psychologist from Temple University, feels the elimination of playtime is endangering children's behavior and learning abilities, saying:

“If kids were left to have some time on their own, they would in fact develop play. Now what we do is, we endanger the species by taking play opportunities away from them.”

We think it's fair to say that kids learn a HUGE chunk of their social skills from their freedom to interact and play with their peers at recess. Why take that away?

Exercise Can Improve ADHD

Exercise Can Improve ADHD

Sometimes the best medicine is a little fresh air…

Or at least that’s what new research on ADHD says.

A growing body of research suggests that exercising outside can have a positive effect on kids with ADHD.

Said researcher Dr. David L. Katz:

“When my colleagues and I conducted a study of our school-based physical activity program, ABC for Fitness, one of the findings was a 33% reduction in medication use for ADHD! I have long said that rambunctiousness in kids is normal and should be treated with recess, not Ritalin.”

Doctors recommend that kids be active outside at least twice a week to help out with ADHD.

If your kid has ADHD, kick them out of the house a few times a week and get them moving!
