As if our children don’t have enough problems to face already, according to Fox News guest, Elizabeth Esther, they should now face bullying from the very adults they depend on. No more ‘pity valentines’ for children that don’t have many friends.
For many years, students that bring Valentines to school have been instructed to bring one for each student in the class, so as not to exclude or discriminate against any other children. But one New Jersey school decided to take a different approach this year by sending a letter home to parents explaining a new policy.

It totally removes the meaning, the special memory for the kids.'[/box]
Esther went on to say,[box type=”shadow”] ‘You can’t make life 100 percent fair. And why not let them experience a little of that, like, ‘Wow, okay,’ while they’re young and the stakes are low rather when they’re 20 years old and they’re still expecting everyone to give them a Valentines.'[/box]
Luckily, parenting expert Jessica Gottlieb jumped in and explained that it did feel better for kids to get a Valentine’s Day card instead of being excluded from the other children.
