My work colleague today told me about the newest mean trick at school
Child A brings Christmas Cards to school - and Child B refuses the card and states they don't want a card from Child A - and Child C & D all chime in - so Child A takes home or throws away half their cards along with their happiness...

Christmas Cards at School - the new nasty

That is horrible

That's horrible. It starts so young now. My ds who is only four got given an invite to a party the other day from one of the parents and when he told the child how excited he was the other child told him he was only joking and he wasn't really invited I'm not sending him.

Oh that is just heartbreaking. Children can be so cruel and nasty to each other.

that is horrid i so dread my DD's growing up and having awful things like that happen.
DD1 (4.5) happily spent all week making all her classmates xmas cards and although you could tell she wanted to she wouldnt take them in until she finished them all as she didnt want to make anyone sad.

I also hate when the child personally hands them out....
And tgen tgeres children left upset.
I always discretly put them into the parents pockets.
Same for bday invites!

That's horrible. In my classroom I have a rule that it is all or none on Christmas cards. And any lollies can't be eaten in school time (which they never listen to). I've never seen a child refuse a card yet.

we used to have a 'post box' in primary where you would 'post' your xmas cards in the last few weeks of school and someone would deliver the cards all around the school (only small school 130 odd kids)

That's not new. That happened at my kindergarten 20 years ago.
Very sad. I quickly learned that if the card contained a candy cane it never got rejected.
