Only in Sweden

Only in Sweden
I don't normally write about Nannyism abroad, as we have more than enough of it here.

However, the story about birthday party invites to a child's birthday party in Sweden (my old domicile 1996-2000) made me spit out my imaginary cup of coffee all over my imaginary trousers (I write very freely when I sit at this keyboard;)).

An eight-year-old boy in Lund handed out invites at school to his friends for his birthday party. However, he chose not to invite two of his classmates.

Fair enough!

Not in Sweden!

The boy's school says that he has violated the children's rights, they confiscated the party invites and complained to the Swedish Parliament. The school argues that if invitations are handed out on school premises then it must ensure there is no discrimination.

The boy's father, quite rightly, has lodged a complaint with the parliamentary ombudsman. He says the two children were left out, because one did not invite his son to his own party and he had fallen out with the other one.

A verdict on the matter is likely to be reached in September.

How long I wonder before the brain dead morons running this country try the same thing here?

  1. Too late Ken!!

    A few years ago, my grandaughter was instructed, along with the rest of her classmates, that she and they MUST send a Christmas card to one particular girl in the class, as her parent (Yes singular) had complained her child was being alienated and victimised by the other eight year olds. Of course, the fact the kid never washed and stunk, had lice and had major behavioural problems that often led to her assaulting the other children had nothing to do with her finding she had no one wishing to socialise with her.

    The real Nanny bit was the diktat from the class teacher,
    "Any child refusing to send a card to the particular girl would not be permitted to hand out Christmas cards on school premisis".....The mind boggles!!

  2. Surely sir you yank my chain??

    You jest???

  3. Ken:

    No sir, this is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but.

    When my daughter told me the story, I too thought she was winding me up but alas, she was not.

  4. Oh dear!

    Time to spit imaginary coffee over my imaginary trousers again!

    Good grief.

    I have 2 daughters who both went through school in a female only environment and so learned how volatile realtionships can be amongst young females, especially as they approach and then negotiate the teens years. (And I suspect it often does not stop there but in adulthood perhaps the males catch up and relationships or lack of them become more long lasting.)

    Mind you for her last 2 years of school my eldest moved to a mixed sex school and found the girls mostly clique bound and the boys mostly puerile so it's difficult to know what to make of modern youth.

    That said the making and breaking of relationships in younger children is all part of their learning experience. We all know that. So why does nanny (any nationality) feel obliged to think otherwise?

    Maybe we should just discourage anything that implies group interaction or may lead to thoughts about group interaction.

    Birthdays, Xmas, Weddings, national celebrations, Church going (any form), football matches ...

    I'm sure we could come up with a long list.

    No wonder the youth and young adults of today tend to 'group' by phone and internet rather than physically. Unless, that is, they are the types who frequent the streets and seek lager oblivion.

    About twenty-five minutes if I'm any judge... *sighs resignedly*

    It is worth reading the english version of the daily news in Sweden. They really are controlled and obviously hate heterosexual males.
    Not even allowed pink ice cream there.
