    Default From the UK: Teachers banning best Friends?

    A story in The Sun, A UK newspaper claims that some schools teachers in Great Britain are adopting a no best friends policy to sheild children from the pain of splitting up. The story seems too ridiculous to be true but here it is:

    TEACHERS are banning schoolkids from having best pals — so they don't get upset by fall-outs.

    Instead, the primary pupils are being encouraged to play in large groups.

    Educational psychologist Gaynor Sbuttoni said the policy has been used at schools in Kingston, South West London, and Surrey.

    She added: "I have noticed that teachers tell children they shouldn't have a best friend and that everyone should play together.

    "They are doing it because they want to save the child the pain of splitting up from their best friend. But it is natural for some children to want a best friend. If they break up, they have to feel the pain because they're learning to deal with it."
    “If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him to do?"
