And its about time too. The plethora of US TV shows with 20 year olds acting as teenagers and hugging at school caught on here, and I found it so sad. I tell you this generation is hooked on TV. I doubt its about boyfriends and girlfriends, I only see girls hugging each other.

When I was that age, I didnt wanna hug anyone let alone the people I went to school with. Girls hugged each other when they won a race, not every morning.

When I was halfway through high school we had a science teacher who everyone thought was the Devil. When I got to know him he wasnt a bad bloke after all. Anyway he used to have the "hands off" policy in the 70s. He would photocopy his two hands and write "hands off" under them and plaster the school with em. I spose being a school comprised of the bastard children of convicts, it might have been about theft as well as not belting each other. I doubt hugging crossed his mind.

If I recall correctly – for adolescents, the act of banning something only promotes it – right?  So maybe these educators are actually promoting free love, and all that goes with it from the sixties.  Why, before you know it – these kids will be a hugging up a storm, holding hands, kissing, and even playing spin the bottle, twister, and strip poker.  (Now who can we get to ban hugging here?)
