The curriculum begins innocently enough in kindergarten, where it states that children are to be taught to welcome new people, not to bully or exclude them. But by first grade, children will be taught that there are different types of families. They will be required to read Who’s in a Family? by Robert Skutch. This book talks about Laura and Kyle, who live with “their two moms,” and Robin, whose family “is made up of her dad, Clifford, [and] her dad’s partner, Henry,” along with other families. The author said that “the whole purpose of the book was to get the subject [of same-sex parent households] out into the minds and the awareness of children before they are old enough to have been convinced that there’s another way of looking at life.”
So...I excerpted part of the article to show the part that I dissaprove of (in bold)-- the "REQUIRED" part. In my elementary school district, parents can opt out of having their child receive lessons on personal safety (good touch/bad touch), HIV/AIDS, and the puberty talk. I don't have a problem with a public school having this curriculum in place, but I feel it should be up to the parents to decide if/when they want their child to be a part of this instruction.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things. -- Robert Brault
