School Bans Mother's Day Cards

Because some kids don't have them? Is that possible? I mean I realize that a mother may have died, but even that child still has a mother and might find it consoling to make his or her mother a card.

From Daily Mail:

A school has banned the making of Mother’s Day cards because the headteacher does not want to upset children without a mother.

Helen Starkey has ended the tradition in the interests of "sensitivity".

"More than five per cent of children here are separated from their birth mother and have either no contact or no regular contact with their mother," she said.
