Also, researchers are not only looking at the link between sugar and diabetes and related diseases. They are also finding links to heart disease and cancer. So, if too much sugar consumption does increase your risk of cancer, does it matter if it's a carcinogen or not? Personally, I'm not going to take a 'wait and see' approach when it's basically unnecessary.

I think we need to take a deep breath and see some context here. This is not a regular thing. One glass of soft drink a term is not going to give them diabetes nor set up a pattern for later in life. If anything it teaches moderation. If the teacher was dishing out coke every recess then I would join in the outrage. But she's not. While I agree we have an obesity problem there is also a steep rise in Orthorexia, and obsessing about every grain of sugar to the point of alienating yourself and your child and giving yourself anxiety is a big step towards that.
And since it's been brought up, it did cross my mind that this is being made a huge issue as ammunition when the time comes to push for homeschooling when you know your husband is against it. No offence meant but I did think that straight away.

So in your OP you said you can say no but your daughter would feel left out, and then go on to say that you are thinking about switching her to a different school over this, and that it is akin to poison?
...have I missed something, or is someone having a tantrum?
No, really, it's a once off, AND you can tell your child not to drink it. I doubt the teacher would force it down her throat. It's a treat, not a responsibility.

I don't agree on homework either. Never have. That's a rant for another day. Lol
But that doesn't mean my children don't do it though and that I don't help them.
Anyway, sorry to go off topic. I'm still against a teacher bringing in junk to school.
Thanks for listening/reading and replying

So no one can challenge teachers but it's perfectly ok to challenge the Op? And anyone that agrees, even in some small way, with her?
If you can't believe it's still going, why are you coming back? Oh wait, to have at go at those participating.

The Op has not suggested the teacher will force her child.
The Op also said in a post a while ago that maybe she was overreacting.
I'm not sure why so many people are taking this thread as an opportunity to get their snark and disdain on.

Meh, it's a one off, everything in moderation.
I'm struggling with the outrage TBH
25-07-2015 20:21 #119
this thread has gone out of control. nobody is feeding the kids arsenic or crack cocaine.
just relax and let kids be kids! it's a one off. I bet half the kids don't even drink it.
