The Catholic High School for Boys in North Little Rock, Arkansas, America, has even banned mums and dads bringing in their LUNCH.
At the start of this school year, Catholic High School for Boys posted a sign in its doorway reminding parents of one of the school’s most important policies.
It concludes by saying, “Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence”.
He said the sign, which really is posted on the door of the school, has not prompted any negative reaction from the school’s parents. “And if I make a mistake, I need to learn from it and try to fix it”, said Wingfield.
An Arkansas high school’s rule for parents is making headlines after going viral on Facebook, according to KARK-TV.
Students started class at the Catholic High School for Boys on Monday. “Every tool a boy needs to solve the problems addressed by the sign are found on our campus”, he said.

One user commented, “As long as they don’t fail or go hungry, I am happy to know my kid is learning to manage the worst case scenarios in life”. Should a student forget his lunch, for example, he has many options available to him, including asking for credit at the school’s cafeteria, which serves up favorites such as pizza and salads, swinging by the office to ask for a loan, or simply hitting up a buddy for some help.
He continued, describing the the rules” other objective – how “soft failures’ are OK too.
The message comes at the beginning of the school year. “It’s when he forgets his lunch, doesn’t make the team, or faces some sort of effect for behavior that is beneath his character”.
“He will have to borrow money for lunch, talk to a teacher about forgotten homework or go hat-in-hand to a coach for forgotten equipment”. A soft failure is when a boy’s behavior results in corrective discipline.
