We've found 10 ridiculous bans in schools around the world. As if puberty wasn't a tough enough period.

2. Father's postcards.
Scottish schools have banned Father's Day cards for dads to show empathy for kids who only live with moms.
Facebook is evil. Just pure evil. According to New York's Jewish Girls' School, girls should not use this site - not even at home. The teachers believe that this makes the girls less humble than they should be.
4. Yoga pants and leggings.
A high school in Massachusetts has updated its dress code to ban yoga pants and leggings on the grounds that they are not suitable for people who are learning to grow up and are about to go to work.
Some American schools believe that bringing your backpack or bag to the classroom can be potentially dangerous due to weapons that can be carried inside. So they only allow you to bring books and stationery to class. Backpacks must remain in the locker.
6. Halloween and Christmas.
