In Year 2 they have a day where kids learn about samesex relationships
It’s after Easter apperantly is that nationally and is every school different

If this to happen How can I as a parent address this with the teacher the fact that I don’t want him to participate

This thread makes me realise how great schools can be in fulfilling the need to expand kids’ education from the narrow mindset of some parents. It also reminds me how carefully we need to monitor faith schools for undermining that goal and why religious home schooling should have even greater scrutiny. headinhands said the rest of what I think especially in relation to the confounding of “god says” with genuine morality.

I dont think taking him out of the lesson is a good idea. My view is you are teaching your kid your religious values - trust your teachings and religion to guide him whilst staying in all mainstream lessons and not singling him out. Your religious teaching and belief if that strong should stand out above. My personal view is that its very important for kids to learn this early on in this day and view it as normal and acceptable for their own sakes and for the sakes of others. Not sure if my ramble makes sense but there you go!

Kids (often younger than 7) will have heard of the term gay in the playground used as an insult. I think that learning what gay means (man loving man/woman loving woman) isn't going to make anyone gay.
