Re: Too dangerous for children?

One of my young japanese students some time ago was not sitting in seiza during lessons. I asked, "why aren't you in seiza like everyone else". She replied, "my knee has been hurting and my doctor said sitting in seiza is bad for your knees." At which I replied, "What? What kind of "quack" is your doctor?" She laughed and replied ... "my dad"
