I think Nikki in the comments section said it perfectly.
"This mother clearly has an issue with control. Her son made a mistake. Withholding food as punishment is abuse. I absolutely do not agree with her at all. I believe it is the schools responsibility to take care of a child while they are in school. I also think, if she wants to control her child as much as this she best pull him out of public school. Can you imagine how he felt? He is in 4th grade? How can a 4th grader be expected to be perfect all of the time? How can anyone be expected to be perfect all of the time? Why not praise him for the other 256 days he REMEMBERED his lunch as opposed to punishing him for the 1 day he forgot"

Sherbertfizz, I have to agree that this generations parents are far to easy on them , but more in the "you're so perfect, you are so great, you really don`t have to try at anything" sort of way. That`s why our lazy spoiled asses are having jobs snatched out from under us by foreign workers. However, most people are missing my point. It was not that this particular child was in danger, but rather that the school acted responsibly. The mother is nut.
Mcduff, I`m sorry for the rude things I said earlier. I don`t think you`re uneducated or naive, we just have a difference of opinion about the logistics of this situation. I respect that you do tough work, and that you have to be nice to these awful people. Luckily for most people they don`t see what we do everyday.
So again I apologize.
OH, and Sherbertfizz, your arguments are hereby negated by your lying. 18-29....tsk tsk. The youth these days.
