12-Year-Old Girl Punished for Hugging Classmate

There's a special place in Hell for school administrators


A MOTHER in Western Australia is demanding an apology from her kids' school after her 12-year-old daughter was given a detention for hugging a classmate.

Heidi Rome's daughter Amber was punished at the Adam Road Primary School in Bunbury, south of Perth, for giving her friend a quick hug after the school bell rang.

Apparently that violated the school's no-hugging policy, a "blanket rule" which was brought in last year.
