I was trained to watch for signs of physical, sexual, mental and emotional abuse, with 'radicalisation' added later. It was a fundamental part of my job to safeguard children from harm. I would have been reprimanded for failing in that duty of care. As soon as I arrived on shift I had a cluster of children surrounding me, all wanting to greet me and show love. If I had to forego such confidence-building contact, or wear a mask so they couldn't see me smile, I may as well have ripped their hearts out. Autistic kids couldn't even sit still, far less in a box! That is extreme cruelty and anyone who sends their children to be schooled under these rigid and unnecessary restrictions, needs their head examined. Any headteacher who implements this disturbing regime should be sacked for violating the rights of the child, whom they are paid to educate, not torment and subjugate. I saw a woman meet a friend with a toddler in a pram today and she stood two meters away from the child while engaging his attention. They are teaching children from infancy to fear, mistrust and shun physical contact. I can't live in a world where people don't hug, kiss, shake hands and demonstrate affection. They have already been enforcing the no-touch policy here for some time. When the children play a game that involves touching such as "tag" they use a fake hand. We have also been told to start practising "social distancing" in the home, so that the children are prepared for when school starts. On the one hand they want physical separation but then for everyone to think alike. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
