At the end of school last year, during the pandemic, one of the required reading assignments presented online was the book I am Jazz, which is the story of a boy transitioning to a girl. This took me completely by surprise. My 7 year old was thoroughly confused and I had no time to prepare for the questions I was asked. My decision abd right as a parent to talk to my child about this subject was unfairly taken away from me. This subject matter is in my opinion too mature for a child of 7 to understand and I would have liked to have had the opportunity to decide when to educate my child about it. I do not have any material or documentation, this all happened during a virtual school session and it happed too fast to document.
