Am I being cruel or is is fair to do this to a 6 yr old

my son takes a lunch to school...Monday he forgot his lunch box.....Today he forgot another lunchbox.... so should he get hot lunch until he brings those 2 back or should i just give him yet another lunch box?

  • Haha...ok if she's smart enough to "drop" his lunch he's smart enough to process that he doesn't like hot lunches and remember to bring the others home...

    I think you have the right idea mama!

    Hot lunches until you see the lunch boxes!

  • hey should bring them back yes but I would still buy him another one. My son is very forgetful and he is 7

  • If there's nothing wrong with the lunch provided at school, I would let him eat those until he brings his lunch boxes home. Kids are never too young to learn a little bit of responsibility. It's definitely not cruel to make your kid eat lunch at school. lol

  • give him another lunch box. Kids will be forgetful and they dont mean to.

  • What I forgot to add is that he left 2 lunch boxes at school so he should bring those 2 back home ... right? is a small school with one class room per grade so it is easy to get stuff back

  • Is the hot lunch bad?

  • Is he forgetting his lunch boxes at school? If that's the case, then just put his lunches in a plastic bag. Like a Wal-Mart sack. And give him a sandwich and other things that can just be thrown away.

  • Just put it in a plastic bag and let hopefully it will remind him to being his box home.
