Mrs Tilbrook, who has three children at the school, feels children who don’t like drinking water should be given the option of having juice on hotter days.Feel free to give them juice at home.
In school, they are subject to in loco parentis, which means the school takes on the role of parent. And seem to be doing a better job than you.
She said: “There needs to be a change as a lot of children are quite stubborn when it comes to drinking water and some kids would rather dehydrate than drink it and then come out of school with a headache.Yes, children can be stubborn. That doesn't mean you give in. If they suffer headaches, it's their own damn fault. This is all part of learning about consequences.
“It’s not like we are asking to allow fizzy drinks. It’s just sugarfree squash the children want.
“I don’t think it would do any harm.”When they grow up to be spoiled teenagers who can't cope with hearing the word 'No', it'll be too late then.
