Durham Police poster urges 'don't threaten kids with jail'

Recommended Posts

Saw this today and thought 'good idea', after all doing no wrong and being in need of help should mean a child can approach a member of the police for good rather than bad reasons.

Mixed comments about it, but I cannot see why other than bad parenting where the "if you don't eat your greens you will go to jail" type argument smacks more of bad/lazy parenting.

 

Classic example of putting something into the mind of a child arose yesterday, family member jokingly said the desert (apple and cream) was horrid and nasty, the 2.5 year old at the table made a distinct and immediate association with that and screwed their nose up at a bite of said dessert.
