Ann,i need yr opinion
today francy looked normal then started to cry for a while, asking me if the police would come in our home in the night for bring me
finally when he calm down he said he watched a sort of cartoon at school where a baby was scodled coz used a mobile phone and his parenst take away from police during then ight..of coursei calmed down him, saying it would not happens to me ecc ecc but i wanted talk with his teacher coz i never saw francy so nervous..but hub said to dont break their balls, that probabily he was jsut tired and he is sensitive...mmmm,but i want talk with teacher
I just saw your post and was coming to ask Bet.
I don't think it would do any harm to have a chat with the teacher to find out exactly what message the cartoon was trying to get across to the children, as obviously Fra has taken it to mean that if he does something bad or wrong, then they'll come and take his mum away. You and I both know that wouldn't happen, but to a sensitive 5 year old, you could easily see how they might think that, as good and bad are pretty much black and white in a child's mind. It's more than likely he's not quite understood what the film was trying to say and it's left him confused. So, yes, talk with the teacher and get their view, as maybe he's not the only child who was a little upset by this, and ask if they would have a chat with him to explain the film and calm his fears.
Sorry I was so long. The page stuck.
