Should we be worried about school-children pretending to be animals?

Apparently, an increasing number of children are dressing/identifying as animals in school

  • Yes, such liberal trends could permanently damage a child
  • Maybe if they’re disrespecting other students or violating rules
  • No, there’s nothing wrong in a child’s fascination with animals

      Since the beginning of this year, multiple rumours have been circulating about children identifying as animals. Additionally, many angry parents and legislators have accused schools of encouraging these children by making special accommodations for them.

      In March, a Nebraska senator had accused a school of planning to set up litter boxes for the children who dress up as animals. His claim was debunked shortly after his statement went viral.

      Even though most of us these claims were proven to be baseless, parents are still worried.

      Yes schools are not a place for Halloween. You seem to set up your questions for slanted answers. Your conservative answer was based in Extreme, ridiculous fashion. Public schools need to teach classical math, history, geography, reading/ writing without SLANTED INPUT snide remarks- like fake news today! Your polls are worthless the. Way you set them up

      Yes indeed! My point would be ask a child psychiatrist & they will tell you. I’ve had a child psychiatrist before when I was a child. I know something about that. Not that was what I was doing but I’ve been taught & informed about issues that also exist along with the issues I had as a child.

      “Such liberal trends could permanently damage a child?” Is this a joke?

      Yes we should be worried about this as this may have a negative impact on how they behave or interact in social places and at home.some act in this manner because of what they may have been exposed to at home in terms of what they watch from the screen.
      Thank youn

      Yes we should be worried in a sense that it may stick in their minds forever that can cause future damages and if they are just pretending or fascinating with animals wouldn’t be a problem.

      Normal childhood behavior should be encouraged. Most kids in elementary school don’t know what being a furry is unless they have been taught by a parent or an older sibling. The child’s education should be based on solid curriculum , reading writing and arithmetic. Please protect young minds, nourish them with love and good things, extremely limit tablets and tv..

      I worked at the Clairmont Psychiatric Hospital, many decades ago. There, their psychiatric wing had a ward where I accompanied a Psychiatric Nurse with another aid. Our job was to prevent elopement! ONE held the clipboard. The next (me) had the most powerful Mag flashlight , available at the time. Our job, had us go room to room , under the instruction , of the nurse, we(via the past experience, of the RN{whom took notes , of the behavior}) had to predict , where, in the room the patient (ANIMAL!), was, and my job, was to flash the flashlight, into the Animals,(patient’s), eyes, and the R>N>, had to visibly see the patient-animal! Some were dogs, some were cougars, some were snakes, some were deer…bobcats, tigers, lions… Thanks, for the memories!? North is north, during, a hurricane, or a summer day with windless blue skies, and a single white cloud, or during the rain. We all know more , than we express. Have I , been tacit enough!? I was taught to pretend , as a child, as an exercise. This is not that, IMO.

      Definitely it is not that great advice for a child to be pretending to be an animal. This is because it turns disrupt their social interaction with people and they sometimes grow with such attitude and this leads to poor communication or socialisation with others.
