Should Minnesota Ban Parents From Dropping Off Stuff Their Kids Forgot at Home? [POLL]
There's a school in Arkansas that's banning parents from dropping off stuff that their kids forgot at home. It's supposed to teach them problem solving skills, accountability and responsibility.
There's actually a sign posted on the door of the building that's going viral right now, and reads; "If you are dropping off your son's forgotten lunch, books, homework, etc. please turn around and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem solve in your absence."
I mean, to me, it seems a little harsh. When I was a kid, I was ALWAYS forgetting stuff at home--including my lunch money. If this would have been a rule when I was in school, who knows where I'd be today. I understand that kids need to learn responsibility and whatnot, but why not teach them how to also use their resources?
What do you think about the new school policy?
