Watch: Is a ban on ‘best friends’ coming soon to your kid’s school?

Lifestyle

What’s happening?

An “inclusionary” trend in some European schools seems to be spreading in the U.S. “Should schools ban kids from having best friends?” a piece published by U.S. News & World Report asked earlier this week.

“A focus on having best friends certainly indicates there's an unspoken ranking system; and where there is a ranking system, there are problems,” psychologist Barbara Greenberg wrote in the article.

The argument is that kids are learning to exclude each other by having a “best friend” and that they should instead be encouraged to have a larger social circle and be “more inclusive and less judgmental.”

Glenn’s take:

“This is crazy town,” Glenn said on today’s show. “Does inclusiveness just keep going until our kids in a classroom are chained together all day? That way no one is ever left out.”
