Two Quebec schools are letting kids engage in rough play, complete with body contact, even if it means they might get hurt.

The new rules are the antidote to a generation that has been bubble-wrapped and coddled, says True North’s Andrew Lawton, who thinks more schools should embrace this approach.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
