Sigh. When it comes to going to school, it's pretty safe to say that things are quite different for our children than when we were kids. From peanut-free tables in the lunch room to cupcake-free birthday celebrations, kids today definitely have a much more sensitive classroom environment, though some schools take things to the extreme a bit more than others.
