This mom just wants to do a kind deed by allowing her son to share some food. So, she couldn’t contain her surprise when she got scolded for packing extra food for her son’s classmate!
Packing Extra Food
A mom on TikTok had been adding a lot of extra things to her son’s lunch box for some time now. OP (Original Poster) had a good reason to, and she was absolutely shocked when, one day, the school got upset about it.
A Shocking Reason
She turned to TikTok to share her story and said she was surprised to find out that her son had gotten in trouble at school during lunchtime. This was shocking in itself, but the school’s reason went beyond just her son’s lunch.
It’s Just Ridiculous
In her video, OP told her story while packing her son yet another lunch box stuffed with more extra food before he went to school.
She said, “Would you believe I got reprimanded for sending my son to school with too much food? Now, to me, that sounds ridiculous because if he’s hungry, he should be able to eat.”
It’s All Unexpected
In hindsight, no matter the reason, a student—or a parent—shouldn’t get into trouble just because they brought tons of food to school. After all, kids need all the fuel they can get.
However, you’d be surprised to know what the school really had a problem with.
A Heartbreaking Reason
As OP listed off the food she was packing for her son—chips, pudding, sandwiches, and other snacks—she said, “But that’s not the reason we send all this extra food.”
It turns out one of her son’s classmates told him that the only time he gets to eat is when he’s in school. OP said, “This extra food is for a child in my son’s classroom.”
A Compassionate Heart
OP was shocked to hear about her son’s classmate, and she was absolutely heartbroken for the boy. So, she took it upon herself to add some extra food to her son’s lunch box so he could get his classmate to eat more.
For her, it was the only way to help the child out.
Agree to Disagree
OP was very generous when she did her best to help out. So, when the school reacted negatively, she was at a loss; she didn’t understand what the issue was.
A Kind Deed Shouldn’t Be Punished!
To put it simply, OP was appalled by the school’s reaction, and she had a lot of questions in her mind.
She said, “Why would the school stop me from giving him extra food? I’m sure they’re aware of the situation going on at home, and I find it absolutely f****** disgusting that my son is getting reprimanded for doing a kind deed.”
Being reprimanded by her son’s school could cause a bunch of emotions to arise. It’s cold and heartless for the school to stop her from doing a good deed, and, at the same time, it could have been embarrassing for a grown woman to get told off by the school.
Even so, OP wasn’t going to be deterred. She said, “I’m gonna keep making this kid’s lunch, and they can kiss my a**.”
The No-Sharing Rule
While some people might think that schools have a strict no-sharing rule because of kids’ possible allergies and, perhaps, COVID-19, for OP, this wasn’t a good reason to stop packing her son more food to share.
Covering All the Bases
Allergies, flu, and other viruses aren’t a deterrent for OP. She said, “If that’s the case, then it should be their responsibility to make sure that child eats.”
OP also explained that she had checked with her son’s teacher about the kids’ allergies beforehand to make sure she wouldn’t bring something that would trigger allergy attacks.
The Community’s Suggestions
The online community flocked to the comments section to commend OP for her generous actions.
One said, “So grateful for people like you. You’re amazing for helping that sweet baby. Thank you for being you! I stand with you!”
Another commented, “It’s a great thing you are doing! The school needs to stay out of it!”
Schools Should Be Helping!
While people thank OP for her generosity, they can’t help but call out her son’s school for their heartless actions.
“Thank you, and God bless you for exposing the heartlessness that your child and his friend face coming from people who are supposed to be helping,” commented one user.
Another said, “I would go to the school and hand it to the kid myself and dare someone to say anything to me feeding a hungry child!”
A Kind, Caring Heart
TikTokers also praised OP for her heart and her selfless actions. For the community, OP’s setting a good example for people worldwide!
One wrote, “I love your caring heart. More people need to understand that your kindness is feeding a hungry child. What is their option to help feed this child?”
Another said, “You are a wonderful mom who cares for humanity. Don’t stop what you are doing.”
What do you think of what OP did? Do you think she was overstepping her bounds when she packed extra food for her son’s classmate?
