I was at my five-year-old cousins flag football game and then something happened that was shocking. A parent ran on to the field yelling at the referee for a missed illegal block in the back call on one touchdown. I have never seen someone that upset over a game played by kindergarteners. But if a parent...

Why act like that? It's just inappropriate behavior for school. There is no need to be fighting someone at school because they tripped you in the hall or you mis heard some false information.   School fights are becoming more common and it would be good to know why. All I can say is that it's ...
