Oppose: Deception of Parents is against every Child Safety Rule
This guidebook is not only misguided but dangerous to our youth. It is inappropriate for teachers and school staff to become involved in a child’s personal life and sexuality. We have long been taught as parents that no other adult should be asking about our kids intimate development and that any suspicion of secretiveness or deception should be a red flag. Are we abandoning this protection for our children? Are we giving school staff free reign to advise our kids on matters of utmost importance without the consent or involvement with the parent? Who is a teacher that has spent a few months with our children(hopefully too busy educating to discuss personal issues?) to involve themselves in life altering decisions above the parent?
One final thought. We know that early treatment for “gender dysphoria” includes hormone therapy, which when administered in childhood prohibits natural reproductive development, therefore effectively sterilizing a child for a lifetime. Do we not think that something so critical and life altering should be left to parents and medical professionals without the influence of teachers who have no lifelong investment in our child?
Shame on anyone who would pass this or encourage this kind of corruption in our school system. We are asking you to educate, not parent our children.
