    Completely agree with this.

    Missing out on eating. no way! At my daughters school they have 10 minutes dedicated eating time.

    Missing out on play. Yes!

    I can't imagine a teacher not allowing food? That is definitely wrong. I'm sure they wouldn't keep the child in the whole break, would they? After all the teacher would want a break too.

    However, if a child is disruptive during class and didn't do the work, well then I think it's fine to keep them in during lunch. There have to be some consequences to bad behavior.

    No child should ever be made to miss out on eating.

    Being kept in to finish work is a different issue. I have a ds with adhd, working memory and processing problems which make his writing skills very slow. He is often kept in for reasons he can't control. I dont agree with that especially if it is everyday. IF Child is mucking around and it not a everyday thing than that's ok.IYKIM

    Sometimes all other avenues have been exhausted. It's a last resort in my classroom, but yep, I've kept kids in.

    I don't think mine has been kept in at lunch, they have a 'thinking room' to which they have to go and sit with the principal and chat with her until the issue is resolved and a note is sent home. I prefer to be notified, that way we can talk to him about it at home.

    I would love a room like that, better than me not having my break, either!

    We do have detention, but that is for serious misdemeanours or repeat incidences.

    I'm talking about 7-8 year olds.

    I'm all for finishing work, but doing it during eating time isn't on IMO.
