One NSW school has banned parents from delivering fast food lunches to their kids.
Canley Vale public high school in Sydney’s south west has sent a note home to parents telling them it is no longer acceptable to deliver McDonald’s & KFC for their kid’s lunches!
It totally defeats the healthy lunch policies schools are trying to enforce.
Uber eats has even been asked not to deliver food to children at school.
In another story “Concierge parenting” is getting totally out of hand
Some parents are going so far as to contacting school to take their child’s place in detention.
While others are paying tutors to have their child’s exams re-marked. One school principal is claiming this extreme parenting trend known as ‘concierge parenting’ is drastically on the rise!
“I think some parents are more anxious about managing their children for ongoing success than they are about ongoing learning,” he said. “The notion that ‘my child must always succeed’ is profoundly dangerous.”
It creates students that are too fragile to accept feedback. “They can’t cope when a teacher says, ‘you need more reasoning here’, or ‘this is unclear’.”
Amid growing concerns about the long-term impact of parental intervention, schools are beginning to act. Last year one School ruled that forgotten items delivered to school by parents would stay in reception until the end of the day.
Do we do TOO MUCH for our children?
