My wife is going to pull my son out of public school in favor of homeschooling for precisely this reason; that the playground is going unfettered. Children might have the imagination required for play, but too often guardians have made excuses for boys dangerously saying, “Boys will be boys.” Without correction, that attitude is sometimes carried into adulthood, and I think that is what happened here.

Senator McCain, The Playground, and The CIA's Use of Torture
The belief that ‘boys will be boys’ is exceedingly dangerous in adults. It is an attitude that starts in childhood, and that if it goes uncorrected, it is very dangerous, such as what we have here. It is time we taught our children how to play, rather than let them engage by themselves without guidance. This is a preventative measure.
