Thus, the garden wants to avoid discrimination.
In one of the kindergartens in Hamburg, parents received a memo from teachers in which the management of a general education institution asked them to responsibly choose a costume for a party in the garden. The message stated that children should not be dressed up in Indian costumes so that “no one would feel discriminated against,” reports the Bild newspaper.
We are talking about costumes that have a connection with a certain race or belonging to an ethnic or other minority, moreover, they contain a negative assessment and can thereby offend part of the parental group, - explained the representative of the garden.
In addition, parents were asked to move away from the stereotypical gender choice of outfits and dress boys as mermaids and girls as superheroes or pirates. The management of the garden supports such demands with data from a leaflet-memo, which is published by the Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
It discusses, among other things, costumes that can have an impact on the development of the gender of children.
The garden's initiative was not appreciated not only by many parents, but also by politicians. The officials noted that when choosing a carnival costume, children should have fun and be creative, and not restrain themselves due to the prejudices of adults.
