    I wouldn't let my kids have lemonade either. Why do people think lemonade is so much better than other soft drinks?

    My son is 5 and has had one sip of soft drink when he was 2 and his Aunty gave it to him not knowing he shouldn't be having it. My 2 year old has never had it. I don't see the need to give it to them and I don't want to make it a part of their lifestyle. If they want a treat in the form of a drink I would opt for juice or a milkshake.

    I can't believe that it is so outrageous for the OP to think soft drink as a reward at school is a bad thing.

    It's the best of a bad lot as it does not have the added colours and additives like the cola, orange, pineapple , pop top juices and other soft drinks do but yes still contains a lot of sugar

    It wouldn't bother me as a one off or as a treat.

    On a personal note: back when I was at primary school my yr7 teacher (qld) had us at in the city for an excursion. It was a hot stinky day and the bus was late to pick us up. So as a treat she took the whole class (31) of us to maccas for a 30c soft serve. I still have fond memories of that teacher. It was a lovely thing for her to do.

    Sometimes even teachers are allowed to be spontaneous and fun!

    I'd be ****ed off. Teachers aren't actually allowed to do that in Queensland and as much of a spoil sport as I'd be I would probably send an email. She sounds dodgy to me. The kids should all be doing their homework anyway and a sticker/reward chart or some other incentive would be more appropriate.

    I think you are right and I can't believe how many people are happy with this.

    OP do you help in the class at all?
    I help out at my kids school and i take my hat off to the teachers, they are awesome.
    I think parents should be more appreciative of them.
    Its lemonade for f##*s sake not cocaine!
    You don't have to volunteer in the classroom to know most teachers do an awesome job. And you don't have to volunteer in the classroom to have a valid opinion on whether or not a teacher bringing soft drink into the classroom is a little off the nose.

    I have to lol at all the shock that kids are not doing their homework anyway. Some kids come to school without lunch or shoes or a jumper. Some come reeking of cigarette smoke from mum smoking in the car. Some,barely come at all. In a 'challenging' area, getting all the kids to do their homework is a HUGE success.

    I'm not sure why so many people are taking this thread as an opportunity to get their snark and disdain on.
    I'm not being rude and didn't actually accuse the OP of having a tantrum.
    However, it does read as one. Being rude would have been to call the OP an idiot, or actually be personal about it- I wasn't.

    I never said the OP believed the teacher would force her child, I said the teacher would not force her child.

    For all we know, the teacher asked and 90% of the class asked for soft drink, and their parents are fine with it. The OP is not, fair enough, doesn't make the teacher a bad person, or make it a bad choice.

    And really, likening soft drink to poison...? Yeah, major overreaction.

    As for "people taking the thread as an opportunity to get their snark and disdain on", the OP started the thread with disdain and continued with it (and snark) for a while. People respond to that.
