Preschool discourages phrase “best friend”

News

(WSPA) — Parents are upset that a Massachusetts preschool is discouraging students from using the term “best friends.” 

CBS Boston reports that school officials say the phrase can cause some children to“feel excluded” or like “outsiders.” 

Christine Hartwell tells the news station her 4-year-old daughter was told she could not call another child her best friend. 

Hartwell says her daughter will attend a different school for the rest of the year.
