AIBU to think that Dali's Lugubrious Game is unsuitable material for use in a year 2 literacy homework? Of all the paintings they could have chosen to ask my 7-year-old to describe they pick one with themes of castration and masturbation, and some quite disturbing imagery.

I imagine the castration and masturbation won't be pointed out or discussed with 6 years.

Instead it will be about the colours

Nothing was pointed out. It was a handout she simply brought home with no class discussion. Dd asked us to look it up online as she couldn't understand what she was looking at. I doubt she was the only one.
