    I agree with this. People love to be outraged it seems, espescially over what teachers do (not OP in particular, just something I've notice on BH before).

    Can't believe people are actually ok with it. The kids aren't even allowed to bring soft drink to school for recess and lunch at this school so why is a teacher allowed to provide it for young kids?!

    Ridiculous!!

    And I do have a right to be ticked off!!

    I would not be happy about it. Soft drink is just crap, my kids have never tasted it and it's never in our house.

    Default Teacher bringing in soft drink for students

    Would you have the same problem at a child's birthday party? What would you do? Just a question...

    Not having a go at you, we just have different opinions. You asked for opinions and I gave mine. I said at the beginning, each to their own.

    Its a treat would there be outrage if it was for a end of year party or are they now banned from schools because heaven forbid a child has anything that isnt paleo, organic, home made or what ever the latest trend is.
    I personally would prefer if it was just lemonade that wouldn't bother me.

    And you have every right to tell your child not to drink soft drink, just send her along to school with a note!

    Don't worry I will be sending a note saying how appalled I am!

    And I won't be sending her to school on Friday.

    Might look into a Steiner school where they don't allow junk!!

    Personally I think it's nice the teacher is making an effort to reward her class's achievements. The soft drink as a one off wouldn't bother me.

    You have every right to your opinion though. This is just my personal opinion.

    I agree with you OP. Using food or sugary drinks as a reward is pretty low standard.

    There are tons of other way to celebrate...!!
