Interestingly, after a few days of girls-only four square some boys wanted to play on the girls four square. So we made a compromise. Instead of an all boys and all girls four square court, we made "beginner" and "advance" courts because the real issue all along was that some of the bigger boys played too hard and it never allowed other kids the opportunity to play. The best part was that by the end of the week everybody was happy with the changes and the problem was solved!
Do you have something you would like to change in your school, neighborhood, or community? A petition might solve the problem. I know it solved mine. Bye!
