Johnstown Primary School Bans Mother’s Day Cards

February 8th, 2007

A head teacher in a Carmarthen, West Wales school has decided to ban the making of Mother’s Day cards:

“More than five per cent of children here are separated from their birth mother and have either no contact or no regular contact with their mother,” she said.

Surely it is sad to know parental ties have been broken for some children, but it doesn’t make sense to go out of our way to break them for all children. Everyone is a minority if you inspect them hard enough, but we shouldn’t make everyone suffer for it. How is that politically correct?

Anyone who thinks that being different is a bad thing or something that everyone should give up freedoms for should read about how bad that world would be if we were all the same in Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron.

    How is asking children to make mother’s day cards on their own time and during school breaking ties with their mother? If that is the case those most be some really weak ties.
