Adapted from a recent online discussion.

Dear Carolyn: My son is a wonderful young man, but there was one thing we butted heads on all four years of high school: He wanted to play football, and I wouldn’t let him.

Well, he just informed me that he plans to play intramural football at his university. I called the school and they confirmed there is a student-run tackle football program, and there is no parental permission required to participate.
