Another choice piece from ‘The Morning Show’
'The Morning Show' often has stories that make me face palm, today's favorite was 'Ban kids sitting on Santa's Knee?'
Because Santa might be a pedophile.
What the morning show doesn’t seem to know is, that here in Australia, if you’re going to be working with children, you MUST sign a form stating that you are permitted to work with children and are open to a background check on the matter. I’ve had to sign such a form 3 times. So any previous offenders are out.
As for future offenders? What sort of pedophile would commit a such an act within eye and ear shot of parents, other children, shoppers, idle bystanders and other staff? They will literally under a spotlight. Anyone who would use being a store Santa as a means of getting close to children is stupid.
I’m all for protecting children, but teaching them that they need to fear everyone is a terrible approach.
