Washington State bans schools from lunch-shaming kids who can’t pay

  Washington State bans schools from lunch-shaming kids who can’t pay Washington State just passed a bill making it illegal for schools to “lunch shame”: stamping kids’ hands when their lunch accounts run out, or throwing away perfectly good lunches in favor of replacing the meals of funds-less kids with milk and bread or similar. Seattle NPR outlet KUOW describes, “Throwing away the lunches of students who can’t pay is part of a practice called lunch shaming. Sometimes schools will stamp a student’s hand or pin a note to their shirt.” Washington governor Jay Inslee signed a bill Tuesday that forces schools to reach out to parents without burdening kids.

Yep millions of parents are reading it , on their phones.

"I hate my mom's phone and I wish she never had one. That is an invention that I don't like."

Beason, who lives in Louisiana, added: "Get off your phone" and "listen to your kids." She noted that four out of her 21 students said similar things.

A study of 170 families in the US, published last year, found that children behaved worse when their parents spend too much time on their smartphones.

Children sulked, whined, threw tantrums, and showed signs of hyperactivity or restlessness more when parents used smartphones while talking to their children.

Actions could be as simple as checking text messages during children's playtime or mealtimes.
