Another reason to be glad I don't have kids in school these days:
It's a disturbing game with devastating consequences, and a new WTHR survey suggests it is rampant in Indiana schools.
"Ball tapping" is the act of intentionally hitting or kicking a male in the genitals. Earlier this month, an Eyewitness News investigation showed the game has become commonplace in some area schools, resulting in serious injuries for students.
As part of the investigation, WTHR also conducted a statewide survey of school nurses. The results are in, and they show the problem of ball tapping is more common and widespread than many school officials had realized.
I confess this is a modern phenomenon I was not aware of, or at least that it was so common it had a formal name. In my day, young squirts, it was just called "dirty fighting." To kids today (it seems to be especially prevalent in middle schools), it's funny and harmless, the story says.
