Who was Your Best Friend in Preschool? Now you Can’t Have Them.
A Preschool in Massachusets is banning a term that has parents and kids ready to throw a temper-tantrum.
According to Boston 25, at Pentucket Workshop Preschool you can no longer use the term "best friend".
The reason, soft. But here it is:
"It has been our experience (which spans decades) that the use of the term 'best friend,' even when used in a loving way, can lead other children to feel excluded [...] which can ultimately lead to the formation of 'cliques' and 'outsiders.'" - Diretor of Pentucket Workshop Preschool
I was trying to think of my best friend in Preschool, I'm pretty sure it was Derek. Double T said his "best friend" was Jimmy, but he was older...shocker. Steph said he best friend was Nolan.
