Who gets to decide what is too extreme? What about an ass grab? How about a tit squeeze? How about a peter pat? The teens would probably be best off avoiding PDA's, otherwise their lible to get some uptight, prim and proper adult who thinks it is too extreme to croch massage at school, and they could get into trouble.
Darn! Has school really change that much from my days? I remember boys and girls standing at their girlfriends or boyfriends lock holding hands or hugging one another way back when I was in school but none of the above mention. Maybe we were raised a little more maturer or with more morals. Or maybe we just had more sense back then to know there a place for everything and those behavior just didn't belong on the school grounds. I'm not saying we didn't have those who didn' slip away to there hid aways. Most just did not see it appropriate on school grounds.

Kid got labeled a sexual predator for playing grab-ass with a girl about six months ago in a middle school. The girl didn't even complain, it was one of the teachers who witnessed the several girls and the guy playing, so they label the kid a sex offender. Best to keep PDAs where they belong...in private.

Really? Whatever happen to talking to child and the parents? Discussing the behavior and dealing with the problem, if there was a problem. We seem to be over reacting to everything these days. I don't know the whole situation of this story but they are children, please tell me we could handle this situation another way. I keep seeing things like this and I'm asking myself where is this world taking us. Where we are afraid to hug or touch one another because it would be construed an indecent behavior! Man I'm beginning to believe that the old science fiction movie may come true. Well when there is no more human contact with each other I think it will become the end of time!!! Or am I over reacting?

Yes, PDA shouldn't be allowed at school, but what IS PDA? Hugging, Hand-holding? No. Now, Kissing, Making-out, Etc., Yeah that's PDA and doesn't belong at school. But a hug from your Boyfriend/Girlfriend ISN'T going to kill anyone. For God sakes, what has happened to the public school system?

Ummmmm, no. School is not a teenager's living room or bedroom. That should be kept private. I personally do not want to see two 16 year olds locking lips before class.

[I think that PDA should be limited. Hugs are okay, kissing and holding hands is not.

I find it disturbing that a school, a place where you're supposed to /learn/, isn't teaching humility and to actually respect the eyes and feelings of classmates.

For example, some students have very low self esteem and self worth, which may cause it to be expressed in a superiority complex ("Everyone looks down on me because I'm so wonderful and they're jealous!") Then they fall for someone. With those feelings come partial delusions.

Then that person turns out to love another. The one with the superiority complex might become mentally unstable, which is worsened by the insensitive lovers.

Worst Case Scenario: somebody dies.

It makes me wonder what happened to the so-called "sweet kids" when you see one of them holding hands with someone in front of a heartbroken classmate.

That's why I think PDA should be limited to hugging and students should be severely punished if they go beyond it.

The positive about limiting PDA is that the students will learn more subtle ways to show they love someone, exercising their brains using emotions.]

Really? So where does it stop then? What about PDA outside of school? Should we stop PDA at pep rallies? Football games? Parties? In the mall?
Heartbreak is a fact of life and just because someone may have had their heart broken or has low-self esteem does not mitigate that everyone else has to stop living their lives. Learning to deal with heartbreak and go on with one's life is also a life-lesson that's taught every day at school outside the classroom. If someone finds that they're jealous because two people are kissing or holding hands, then that person needs to head down to the counselor's office or *gasp* talk to their parents about it.
And subtle ways? What would these subtle ways be? Who decides them? You? The poor, tortured soul?
And what manner of punishment? Detention for holding hands? Suspension for kissing?
Three words: grow a pair.

hm, well i think so, but only to a certain extent. making out and hugging are two different things. i agree with hand holding and hugs, and a quick peck, but yes. some ppl tend to take it to far. so in the end, i agree, yes they should.

Unfair or not, it's probably the safest route in high school.
