Parents at posh school ‘horrified’ over lessons teaching young children to ‘touch themselves’
‘This is pure indoctrination’

An elite New York City school that tells children they can’t be hugged “without consent” is now under heavy fire from outraged parents over lessons reportedly teaching young kids sexual gratification by “touching themselves.”
According to the New York Post, “health and wellness” educator Justine Ang Fonte at The Dalton School uses cartoons as a tool in her sex-ed classes for 6-year-olds featuring small children talking about “touching themselves” for pleasure.
“Hey, how come sometimes my penis gets big sometimes and points in the air?” a young boy asks in the cartoon, followed by an explanation about what an “erection” is.
“Sometimes I touch my penis because it feels good,” the boys says while nodding.
A small girl then notes: “Sometimes, when I’m in my bath or when mom puts me to bed, I like to touch my vulva too.”
Fonte claims she never uses the word “masturbation” in class, adding her lessons teach children not to touch themselves in public.
Parents expressed their outrage to the Post, especially when the school instructs consent for family hugs.
“Literally parents are supposed to say to their kids, ‘May I hug you?'” one parent said.
One mother said that another parent told her, “I’m paying $50,000 to these a**holes to tell my kid not to let her grandfather hug her when he sees her?”
The lessons for first-graders also address gender identity, gender assigned at birth and gender expression.
Other comments from parents who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation include:
- “Kids have no less than five classes on gender identity – this is pure indoctrination. This person should absolutely not be teaching children. Ironically, she teaches kids about ‘consent’ yet she has never gotten consent from parents about the sexually explicit, and age inappropriate material about transgender to first graders.”
- “We are furious. We were horrified to learn this was shown to our first-grade 6- and 7-year old kids without our knowledge or consent. But it’s so hard to fight back because you’ll get canceled and your child will suffer.”
- “I’m not against all sex education but it’s not cool to keep parents in the dark about it.”
