Schools ban children making best friends

 “Just when you thought you had heard it all – Schools ban children making best friends. Instead, the primary pupils are being encouraged to play in large groups.”

“They are doing it because they want to save the child the pain of splitting up from their best friend. But it is natural for some children to want a best friend. If they break up, they have to feel the pain because they’re learning to deal with it.”Russell Hobby, of the National Association of Head Teachers, confirmed some schools were adopting best-friend bans.

  1. This is insane! Is there a collection basket going around to pay for the therapy these kids are going to need when they experience real life where not everyone is friends and get along? We have a culture of coddling and we cannot prevent bad things from happening to kids, because bad things happen to everyone. And we deal with it.
