Here we go folks. Now they’re banning hugging in elementary schools, because personal space matters! The Geelong Advertiser reports:
HUGGING has been banned at a Geelong primary school with children told to find other ways to show affection.
“…in this current day and age we are really conscious about protecting kids and teaching them from a young age that you have to be cautious,” Mr Grant said.
How about we just teach kids how to respectfully communicate with each other?
Like… hey, I don’t want a hug… or I’m not really a huggy person… or no thanks.
Ok, so now they’re supposed to show “affection” with a knuckle-bump. But in 20 years, they’ll be banning that too because it’s showing too much affection. You know… PROGRESS!
