    Default Teacher bringing in soft drink for students

    Daughter's (8) class ( grade 2) is having a class party on Friday because they all finished their homework on time.
    Teacher is bringing in soft drink!!!

    I'm very annoyed! I know I can so no to that but then daughter is left out.

    Is if just me or would anyone else be p!ssed off that a teacher would be bringing in soft drink for her students?

    We have to provide our own food, so something healthyish and yum is what I'll be doing ( not sure what yet).

    Meh wouldn't bother me, my DS wouldn't drink it anyway as he wont drink anything flavoured. Soft drink once isn't going to do any more harm than a few lollies.

    Wouldn't bother me either. My youngest DD would have a cup, but we don't have it at home so one glass every now and then doesn't matter to me. My oldest DD wouldn't touch it anyway as soft drink makes her feel sick.

    I don't give my kids soft drink at home either, though they have had it. When they drink it, even just one small cup, they get too hyped up on sugar.

    A teacher shouldn't be encouraging any child to drink that crap!

    No, I wouldn't care if there was soft drink at a class party. It wouldn't even occur to me to get all up in arms about it and we don't give DS sugary things either or have soft drink at home.

    It's not ideal, and good luck to her teaching a class room of hyper kids afterwards!

    DS is allowed lemonade at parties , technically I suppose this is a party so I wouldn't be thrilled but I would ask what kind of soft drink she would be bringing in, coke or any caffeine ones Id say no too , and recommend she bring in a plain lemonade so at least it won't have colours and additives ( just tons of sugar) I just hate that she is using food/treats as a reward

    Lemonade is actually better for them than those stupid juice pop things that contain additives and colours not recommended for children!

    You're right it probably is all the other crap in it.

    I personally wouldn't be concerned, but each to their own. Teachers are damned if they do and damned if they don't these days!! If you have a problem, send her with a drink bottle I guess!

    I don't agree with food rewards either.

    That's fine, just send her with her own drink. I'm sure the teacher will understand, but no need to get ticked off about it
