Prince George can have whatever he wants...expect a best friend.
Thomas's Battersea, the school George attends, bans kids from having best friends. Instead, teachers encourage all students to form bonds with one another to avoid creating feelings of exclusions among those without best friends.
The trend of banning best friends has been growing for several years, and it's spread beyond European borders to American schools as well. Some psychologists and parents argue kids become more well-adjusted when they have larger friend groups and can avoid negative feelings associated with feeling left out.
Critics, however, say the approach robs kids of the chance to form valuable coping skills. By grappling with mild social exclusion when they're young, kids will emerge as more capable, resilient adults.
