they should but not to a certain extent


My opponent has utterly contradicted themselves. They argue that recessed high schoolers should not play like children. "Not playing like children" is a certain extent in which high schoolers are allowed to behave during recess. However, in their opening argument, they say high schoolers should have recess but NOT to a certain extent. This means there should
Be no extent at which recessed highschoolers should behave. My oppenent is arguing for and against themselves.

High School kids, like elementary school kids, probably should have at least two recesses...once at mid-morning, and once after lunch. Playing like children isn't such a great idea, but they should be able to gather with their friends, smoke if they want to (but only in specifically designated places.), shoot the breeze, and generally talk about what's on their minds. being outside, for awhile, would help clear kids' heads, as well.
