Terror Alert at School! Kid Eats Pudding with “Camping Spoon”!

This poor 10-year-old kid… She took her camping tool to school (a spoon, fork, dull butter-knife combo) & was suspended after being caught eating her pudding with the spoon! Insanity! Below is her Mom’s description of those events:

September 27, 2011:(…)

    I think, culturally speaking, we’ve done our children a disservice. We’ve taught them to turn the other cheek, just walk away from an argument, “just because someone else does it, that doesn’t make it right.”

    Most of our kids are woefully unprepared to develop an attitude that allows them to go on the offensive. We’ve trained that out of them with “respectable” behavior and sending them to school to be trained not to fight back, not to come across as aggressive and have the words “ZERO TOLERANCE” drilled into their heads.

    My 10 year old daughter recently got suspended from school for taking a camping tool (which looks like a pocket knife but has a dull knife, a fork and a spoon) with which to eat her lunch. (FTR, I told her she was not allowed to take it.)

    I got a phone call from the principal to come and pick her up because she had brought a “weapon” to school. This was on my voicemail with no further info. Imagine my surprise when I arrived at the school to discover it was her camping tool.

    Me: “Was she brandishing the knife at someone?”
    Principal: “Actually it was the spoon.”
    Me: “She was brandishing a spoon?”
    Principal: “Not exactly brandishing it.”
    Me: “Then what was she doing with it?”
    Principal: “Well, um, she was eating her pudding.”

    How absolutely terrifying for her victims.

      Good post and comment. Politically correct and zero tolerance has feminized our men and will be the death of Liberty and our Constitution because words and events are what the progressives say they mean. Control the words and events and they win.Daisy

      I like this site because the men posters are – well, manly men. They say what they mean and mean what they say. It’s not lost given the current arm chair techie generation.

      I’ll bet they never look at pudding in the same light ever again–poor babies!

        “I have a folding spoon and I’m not afraid to use it!”

          I have a concealed spork permit.

    • Daisy: Was it white or dark pudding?
      • Daisy says:


        Chocolate. Jello brand. That’s very ominous, I know.

    • Daisy says:

      All joking aside, my daughter missed THREE DAYS of school over this. She was horribly embarassed because it was the very first time she has ever been in trouble at school – she’s exceptionally well-behaved.

      Sadly, our kids are being brainwashed to not resist, no matter what the impetus is. They are punished for standing up for themselves, for saying “no” to unfairness or mistreatment and for sticking up for other, weaker kids. When they are grown, how can we expect them to think critically and react appropriately?

      • Plain Old American says:

        Public school is designed to make both the child AND the parent realize that the state reigns supreme.

        If you want your children to think you MUST be their primary educator.

        • Daisy says:

          POA – you are absolutely correct. I tell my girls to question everything and everyone, even me. Not to be disrespectful, but to form your own opinion – don’t let other people feed you an opinion which you regurgitate as your own.

          Sometimes, the whole “question everything” theory kinda backfires on me. :o
