Good morning all,
An external company at DD’s school provided a “diversity workshop” last Monday. My DD felt uncomfortable and spent the rest of it in the bathroom.
I asked her to explain what was discussed and how it made her feel (to get a record), I felt I had enough ammunition to talk to the parents in the group chat, to see if there were more concerns.
The first one to react was a parent who is also a school governor and she was protecting the school, reactions were supportive towards her and I chose my battle and remained quiet.
Most of the children whose mothers who said they DCs found the workshop positive, were boys. Most of the group remained quiet.
I opened a separate group with parents who were curious about the subject, to discuss, and only 3 responded (inflating the statistics, my DH included 😂)
I understand most schools are going that direction, and not sure how far this will go. I’m not fond of having the school sexualising the diversity topic, nor confusing children about reality.
In the experience of others, is it worth trying to peak other parents?, has anyone have had a positive experience? How do you go about it?
Thanks and have a super Wednesday.

Is peaking at school an honourable task to start?

Thank you @user123212. My DD want clear on why she became upset. Something clashed in her brain… I peaked her and now she wants a t-shirt with the definition of “girl”.
The grand parent book is a really nice introduction. Thank you for the tips… and you’re right, once indoctrinated, it’s hard to get back. I had that experience with my sister in law… luckily she lives far, far away.
Now the group has grown to 5 members. Let’s see what happens. Thinking about organising a get together with handovers… I’m not buying the grand parent book.
