Nowadays in high schools more people are concerned about PDA (Public Displays of Affection). A lot of high school couples are not happy about this even though some make sense others don't. For example, No hugging or hand-holding; if caught will end in punishment. That rule is not necessary because one hug has never killed anyone or hand-holding. I can guarantee that more than 100% of people who made up this rule were the ones that did the exact same thing when in high school. So let me ask you, If it wasn't a problem when you guys were doing it in school, what's changed? The kissing thing students can understand, but hand-holding and hugging that's going a little too far.
Students day by day are constantly angered with these rules. Yes, we understand safety, but you're not our parents. There is a line between parenting and schooling, please learn it. Even those of us who don't have partners we're still angered by these rules as well. No one sees the point that's the problem.
PDA should only be a problem when it goes too far. Such as students' touching each other in ways they shouldn't, making out, french kissing, and/or other things. Outside and/or behind those lines should be okay. The more you try to tell people they can't do something, the more people you'll have getting creative with ways to get around those lines. Same with rules, the more rules, the more you have people breaking them.
So, in conclusion, students won't give up on trying to work around the PDA rules no matter what anyone says or does. I would honestly suggest loosening up on the rules and then you shouldn't have any more problems. It may not sound like a good idea, but at least it's something. Sincerely, Student.
