Agreed but how did this child make the wrong choice? You would've sent your child to his room for a week for making the correct decision and leaving the knife behind instead of bringing it into the school?

If it were my child, I would have praised him for making the right choices. I have two kindergärtners. They are curious about everything and so much is going on in their heads trying to understand the world and all its strange rules. They truly would be even more confused little souls if this had been one of them and they were actually punished for doing the right thing.

Better sooner than later to learn that anyone in a position of authority is a waste of skin.

Kids need to be taught about consequences to prevent them from making the wrong choices.

I fear the child in question in this case wouldnt learn anything if no action had been taken.


The knife was found abandoned. He was a curious 5 year old.
