“I first became aware ofrepparttar protective behaviors curriculum when a mother called me to tell me of an experience she had with her daughter. Her child, an elementary schoolgirl, had come home in tears. When she saw that her mother was home and waiting for her, she rushed to her in relief. AI wasn’t sure you’d be here, she told her mother. Her mother reassured her that she would always be there for her. In school that day, her daughter told her, her class had discussed “bad” touching including spanking."

"Inrepparttar 144346 course ofrepparttar 144347 discussion, children had been encouraged to share withrepparttar 144348 teachers and classmates whether they had ever been touched in that way andrepparttar 144349 girl had said that her mother had spanked her. The children were also told that people who engaged in bad touching would be taken away and put in jail. Forrepparttar 144350 rest ofrepparttar 144351 school dayrepparttar 144352 girl was terrified that her mother who had spanked her would now be taken away and locked up for her bad touching."

Parents, it might be wise to periodically ask your children if their teachers ask them personal questions about your family or how you discipline your children. Turning children into spies against their parents or making them afraid of their parents is not what parents pay school taxes for.
