"Toddlers and babies should be viewed by child carers and pre-school teachers as sexual beings according to material linked to a new early childhood training module, sparking a warning that children are now at the centre of a dangerous (homosexual and) gender experiment.
The Start Early training module developed by Early Childhood Australia with funding from the NSW Government, teaches that ‘not everyone fits into male or female gender; there is a continuum of variation.’
Wendy Francis will today outline concerns with the training module at a NSW parliamentary inquiry into the sexualisation of children and young people.
“The ideological thinking that gender is fluid is underlying this module as it did in the controversial Safe Schools program,” Ms Francis said.
“One resource book ‘Children’s Sexual Development and Behaviour: Pants Aren’t Rude” which is linked to the Start Early training module, encourages parents and teachers to think about their children, and even babies, as ‘sexual beings’ who should be allowed to sexually stimulate themselves from infancy.
“Most parents would be disturbed that childcare staff and pre-school educators are being told to view their children as sexual beings.
“This is an extreme and dangerous way for any adults to view children,” Ms Francis said.
“In the book, educators are told to encourage children to keep masturbating in private, rather than telling them to stop.
“Most would believe it can be harmful to talk with young children about sexual topics before they are ready and it is completely inappropriate for educators to be taught these ideas and encouraged to apply it to our toddlers, particularly without the knowledge of parents.”
In response to a Herald Sun article by journalist Susie O’Brien, Early Childhood Australia released a statement saying that its free online modules will not include information about sex, sexuality and cross-dressing.
“Yet a month on, that information remains in the recommended resource book for Start Early and can still be purchased through their website,” Ms Francis said.
“The NSW Government should review its support of the program.”
At today’s hearing Ms Francis will also speak on the impact of:
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
“What the world needs most is a voice that courageously speaks the truth, not when the world is right, but a voice that speaks the truth when the world is wrong.” Fulton Sheen
True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
