  Case: Kissing at recess
Some of the kids have made up a new game at recess. The boys will chase the girls with kissing gestures and sometimes kiss them when tagged and vice-versa. I have witnessed this game and told students to stop. The matter was also addressed to the whole class after recess. One week, later students are playing the game again. What should I do?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
Every time you see a student playing, they lose recess and have to sit with you. If the whole class has to be sat out, then take them inside and make them do classwork instead.

Comments: I don't think this solution does enough for the problem. I would also like to see a conversation about why kissing isn't just some game
