Mom Furious After Son Was Shamed Over Chocolate Milk

  • Mommy blogger Constance Hall is furious that her son’s school banned him from drinking chocolate milk as a snack during morning break
  • Apparently the school felt it wasn’t “healthy enough for recess,” although it was perfectly fine for him to drink during lunchtime
  • Hall is angered at the way her son was shamed over the drink, and that she was forced to deal with an “awkward” lecture” by teachers 

The days of just throwing together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and sending your kids to school are long over. Parents now have to concern themselves about whether the lunch they’ve packed is healthy enough to meet school standards, and one mom in Australia isn’t too happy that her son was called out over his drink of choice.

Furious mommy blogger Constance Hall said on her radio show "The Queen Sesh" that her son’s school banned him from drinking chocolate milk as a snack during morning break. Apparently the school felt it wasn’t “healthy enough for recess,” although it was perfectly fine for him to drink during lunchtime.

Hall isn't just mad at the school’s ridiculous rules over the morning snack, she is also angered by the way her son was shamed over the drink, and that she was forced to deal with an “awkward” lecture, where teachers advised her about proper nutrition and called her chocolate milk the “worst breakfast ever.”

“There are other mothers who can’t even afford to do lunch orders and then for them to get shamed about what they’re giving their kid for recess, I just don’t like it,” she said, adding, “Power to the people! Let them drink milk!”

Utah School To Make Students Pay For Being Late…Literally

  • Stansbury Park High School in Stansbury Park, Utah has instituted a new policy in which students will be fined if they are late for class
  • Kids will get by with a warning on their first late arrival but after that they’ll have to start paying up, $3 for their second late arrival, and $5 for each one after that
  • Parents aren’t happy, with some suggesting it’s just a way for the school to make money, although the funds will actually go back to the students

We all know it’s not good for kids to be late for school, but one school in Utah may be going to a bit of an extreme to stop it from ever happening again.

Stansbury Park High School in Stansbury Park, Utah has instituted a new policy in which students will be fined if they are late for class. Kids will get by with a warning on their first late arrival but after that they’ll have to start paying up, $3 for their second late arrival, and $5 for each one after that. 

"What we're really trying to target is those periods between classes where really it's a choice," Cody Reutzel, assistant principal, says. "It's a personal decision of whether you're going to walk from class A to class B and be on time." 

As you can imagine, not everyone is happy about the fines, with one parent suggesting it’s "not going to fix the problem that they're facing,” and another saying it’s just a way to “make a money grab out of the thing,” although the funds will actually go back to the students in the form of incentives.

And students won’t necessarily have to pay for their lateness with actual money. They also have the option of cleaning their slate by serving lunch detention, or not being late for a few weeks.

Americans Work Harder Than Workers In Most Other Countries

  • According to statistics, Americans put in more hours on the job than folks in other countries
  • U.S. workers work 137 hours more per year than workers in Japan, and 260 more hours per year than folks in the UK
  • U.S. workers put in about 500 more hours of work a year than those in France

Most Americans enjoyed a day off from the office yesterday to celebrate Labor Day and according to a new report, we certainly deserved it. While other countries may consider us “Lazy Americans,” a new study suggests we actually work harder than folks in other parts of the world.

According to statistics, Americans put in more hours than folks in other countries, including Japan, where U.S. workers put in 137 hours more per year, and the UK, where Americans work 260 more hours per year. And that’s not all. When it comes to the French, Americans should be the ones calling them lazy. The report finds U.S. workers put in about 500 more hours of work a year than those in France.

Of course, because we work so hard, many folks really did spend yesterday relaxing and enjoying themselves. In fact, a survey by NationalToday  finds that two thirds of Americans either hosted or attended a barbecue on Labor Day, with outdoor festivities most popular in the East, although a majority of folks in every part of the country did attend a barbecue. As for what they ate, the top choices included burgers, dogs, chicken and steak.
