Teachers ban kids from having a best friend.
Scraped knees next? Why? So children are not upset by fall-out. Instead, kids are being encouraged to play together in large groups.
Educational psychologist Gaynor Sbuttoni says the policy is used at schools in Kingston, South West London, and Surrey.
She added: “I have noticed that teachers tell children they shouldn’t have a best friend and that everyone should play together.
“They want to save the child the pain of splitting up from their best friend” says Shuttoni. “But it is natural for some children to want a best friend. If they [best friends] break up, they have to feel the pain because they’re learning to deal with it.”
There is no end to the nanny state but slavery.
