Catholic high school's 'problem-solving' sign to parents goes viral

- A Catholic school in Arkansas is getting a lot of attention online after posting a sign to parents about forgotten items on its Facebook page.

The Catholic High School for Boys in Little Rock, Arkansas posted a photo of the sign that reads:

"If you are dropping off your son’s forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc., please TURN AROUND and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence."

The photo was accompanied by the caption, "Welcome to Catholic High. We teach reading, writing, arithmetic, and problem-solving."

Since being posted on Aug. 10, the post has been shared more than 115,000 times and has received a mix reaction on social media.

"Kids won't learn on an empty stomach. If a parent is willing to bring their child materials or food and pay you a hefty chunk of tuition change, stop talking," one comment reads.

"What an idiotic thing to say," another person wrote. "If they were ready to problem solve by themselves, they would no longer be in high school. Stop expecting children to be adults."

Others applauded the message, writing "I LOVE this."

Another Facebook user wrote: "Reading how some parents complained about this statement and seeing the kids in school. No wonder kids are the way they are, irresponsible!"
