(Bright Side) School life can be pretty tough for kids with all the studying and growing up they have to do. It gets worse when teachers (a.k.a. adults) start imposing bans on things, especially if they are the things you love the most.

We at Bright Side found 20 ridiculous bans in schools around the world. As if puberty wasn’t tough enough!

20. Best friends


A school in south-west London has banned kids from having best friends because the teachers believe that it can be very upsetting for a child when the friendship ends.

We all fell out with our friends many times, and yet we are here all grown up. Perhaps they simply do not want them to socialize on school premises.

19. Father’s day cards


Scottish schools have banned cards for dads on Father’s Day to sympathize with kids who live with only moms. All right, fair play. However, what about kids with no moms or with 2 moms or dads?

18. Facebook


Facebooking is evil. Just pure evil. According to an all-girls Jewish school in New York, girls shouldn’t be using this social networking website — even at home. The teachers think that it makes girls less modest than they should be. There. It’s all about being modest...and also about “not getting killed on the internet.”

17. Hugging


A Northampton elementary school decided that hugging your best pal should not be allowed. The teachers believe that children must learn how to respect the concept of personal space. However, the kids and their parents do not seem to accept this ban.

“It is going to prevent children developing social skills during their most formative years,” one of the parents said.

Why would you want to hug your friend? Being anti-social is so much better!

16. Yoga pants and leggings


A high school in Massachusetts updated its dress code by banning yoga pants and leggings on the grounds that they are not appropriate outfits for people who are learning to become adults and enter a workforce soon.

Plus, the opposite gender gets distracted. Obviously.

15. Backpacks


Some American schools believe that bringing your backpack or bag inside a classroom can be potentially dangerous because of all the weapons that can be carried inside. Thus, they only allow you to bring books and stationery supplies. Backpacks must stay in a locker.

Besides, you need to get your muscles trained!

13. Rubber bands

Several schools across the US have banned Bandz bracelets and other rubber bands because, and we quote, “they are a distraction.” According to teachers, kids play with them too much and get too involved in their games, which then distracts them from the educational process. But we all know that kids will find a way.
