Yes, that is the headline from one school in Arkansas.
If you have children, it is bound to happen, they leave their lunch, a library book, their homework, you name it at home and in you have a moment of panic, you grab it and run it to the school so your son or daughter has it when they need it.
Enter Catholic High School for Boys in Arkansas. They say no mas.
Their theory behind this new rule is to teach the students personal responsibility and the cut the cord of Helicopter Parents.
Interestingly, this rule is being tested at other schools and it is getting varied responses from parents all over the internet. Some say, it that since the kids are still at home, they are the responsibility of the parents and you can’t allow your child to not eat if they forget their lunch, others are saying this policy is teaching the responsibility the student needs.
If you check out the school’s Facebook page, it reads:
“Welcome to Catholic High. We teach reading, writing, arithmetic, and problem-solving.”
As of this writing, that picture and caption has been shared over 120,000 times. (If you have a few moments, the comments are worth reading)
What say you? It is this the correct approach, or a ridiculous policy?
