A Government website has warned parents that a visit to see Father Christmas could be 'terrifying'
for small children.
Pantomimes may also be too scary and traditional party games could have youngsters in tears.
The advice for teachers detailed on the website said, 'Younger children in particular have a wide range of fears. For very young children, Father Christmas can be terrifying. Make sure that fearful children are
near an exit. Trips to the pantomime can cause alarm, so the same planning applies.'
Margaret Morrisey, from the National Conference of PTAs, is reported to have said, 'It is so sad that we have become so politically correct that we are trying to remove the magic of Christmas.'
The advice has been taken off the website and the Department for Education said, 'This is not Government policy. It does not reflect our views.'
Funny Warning Sign Story
On a warm and mild New Year's Eve, Martha's Vineyard revelers were
generally well-behaved. Police across the Island reported the night was
quiet and three arrests made Friday night were for operating under the
Steamship Authority (SSA) employees did fish a man out of the water on
New Year's Eve; it happened this way:
Wayne Lamson, SSA general manager, said the Martha's Vineyard arrived at
the Vineyard Haven terminal at 8:15 pm and docked in the north slip. As a
result, passengers debarked on the south side of the vessel.
Michael Grekwizc of Warwick, R.I. decided to exit the ferry wearing
rollerblades. "He came down the ramp and then did a 360 [degree] turn and
lost his balance and went over the netting that was across the opening on
the elevated platform," Mr. Lamson said. "So he ended up in slip one."
Mr. Lamson said the crew reacted quickly and threw two life rings and a
life vest to Mr. Grekwizc. Another employee lowered the transfer bridge as
low as possible, allowing the man to climb up on it and out of the frigid
water. The resulting commotion led to a delay in loading the boat for her
departure. Mr. Lamson said there was about a 20-minute delay in departure.
Mr. Lamson said he was thankful no employees and the man were not
injured. He said any accident involving the water is a serious matter
particularly in the winter.
Asked if he contemplated any changes in policy, Mr. Lamson said there are
not enough signs and rules to enforce common sense.
