    SHOCKING! School makes kids take personal responsibility!

    The sign hanging on the door at the Catholic High School for boys in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    Let's say your 10th-grader forgets his lunch. So you receive a telephone call at work.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    “Mom, I left my baloney sandwich on the kitchen counter,” he tells you. “Can you bring it to me, pretty please?”

    So, what would you do? I’d be willing to bet a Moonpie that many parents would drop everything and rush to the school to personally deliver their little snowflake’s brown bag lunch.

    But that sort of coddling is not allowed at Catholic High School for Boys in Little Rock, Arkansas. As a matter of fact -- it’s outright banned.

    Catholic High School prides itself on teaching reading, writing, arithmetic and problem-solving.

    “Come, boys, so that you can become men,” is their challenge -- engraved in a monument attached to the school’s bricks.

    There’s also a big sign plastered on the front door -- a message to moms and dads.

    “If you are dropping off your son’s forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc., please TURN AROUND and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence.”

    Brilliant!

    Those Catholic school educators don’t mess around.

    Click here to read the book that’s driving liberals nuts – “God Less America.”

    The school also posted the message on Facebook and, as they say, it’s gone viral. Television station KARK reports the posting has been shared tens of thousands of times.

    And parents from coast to coast are giving the Catholics a thumbs-up for teaching boys about self-reliance and personal responsibility.

    • “This is beyond awesome! I find it hilarious that anyone’s bellyaching about a Catholic school encouraging parents to cut the umbilical cord and force their kids to develop self-reliance.”
    • “Treating your high schooler son like a baby will make him soft and weak.”
    • “It’s called learning through natural consequences. A child doesn’t learn responsibility when mommy or daddy comes running to the rescue.”
    • “Those Catholics are one tough bunch.”
    • “You can’t learn responsibility always depending on someone else.”
    But not everyone was thrilled with the school’s methods.

    • “This is disgusting.”
    • “Surely this is just a suggestion and not a rule. No way, no how would any school person tell me what I could or could not bring to my child.”
    • “If a school refused me being able to bring a forgotten lunch or a book he left because he was in a rush, I would find a more understanding school.”
    Personal responsibility and self-reliance are lessons that seem to be lost in public schools -- where children are coddled.

    Catholic High School teaches young boys how to become men -- instead of mama’s boys.

    Damn right. Sonny boy should blow Father O'Grady if he leaves his homework behind, just like the rest of us had to do.

    1. This is hardly just a catholic school thing.

    2. Joke that schools will be legit tough on kids whose parents are paying.

    Hmm - I don't know. We've all forgotten things - thing is, as an adult, if you forgot something, there's alternatives. At school you're pretty much trapped. ... but schools don't have a lot of logic, ironically ....

    I have to admit, one time - this girl didn't bring a lunch, so - her grandmother worked at the school - and brought her in A HAPPY MEAL. I didn't think that was fair ... the rest of us, if we didn't have a lunch, would have to depend on someone sharing what they had.

    no
    they treated every student the same

    that's not the way the world will treat them
    and as a result the school isn't teaching them the correct lesson

    the fuck ups don't get many breaks
    the non-fuck ups do

    Why would you subject your kid to Catholic school?

    Because you want them to turn to drugs, become a teenage parent, and hate God.

    All I saw was catholic school girl and all I could think about was when I fucked my former girlfriend while she was dressed up like one. Ladies, I highly recommend you do this at least once for your dude.

    You'd know the rules going in. They'd tell ya to fuck off, and that you're welcome to take your son elsewhere.
