I miss the days when parents raised their children.
What a joke. 180 days of school, classroom of 30 kids. Is one cupcake every 6
days really going to be an issue? I guess since they only have PE once a week
it could be. But don't the federal govt and superintendent have better
things to worry about?
I would almost bet that at this school recess has been reduced next to nothing
so teachers can get those students ready for standardized testing.
I sure am glad I grew up in the generation I did, when treats in class were
acceptable and sleepovers were fine, too. Oh, well. We creative ones will still
find ways to make birthday celebrations at school fun!
It's really not necessary to celebrate a birthday with baked goods at
school. Some schools okay the cupcakes but you have to order them from the
school and the food dept makes them. Expensive. A better suggestion is to donate
a book to the class or library. Some kids don't even have a
bday during the school year. Does any child need to eat 20 cupcakes during a
school year? Besides the ones outside of school?
The beatings will continue until morale improves.
The occasional classroom treat is not where the obesity problem lies. It is in
the home diet. It is overkill to prohibit a classroom birthday treat.
