The bake sale problem is getting even worse! First, I said we need to cut ourselves a break and Screw the Bake Sale, but now my children's schools are requesting us to show up during the workday to help bake treats because our kitchens at home are not allergen-free. I empathize with families with allergies and I empathize with working mothers, so why are we even having a bake sale in the first place? Here's what I think: Don't just screw the bake sale, KILL the bake sale. Here's what we should be doing instead.
