#MothersDay NewsFlash ~ Reading #HarryPotter Damages Your Mind !


I have it from a real “educator” who actually founded his own school that Reading Harry Potter books makes children MENTALLY ILL… 

Harry Potter

Graeme Whiting, headmaster of the school he actually founded has also said:

“…other fantasy titles such as Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games and Terry Pratchett encourage ‘difficult behaviour’.”

And, of course, since he founded his own school and installed himself as headmaster, I can share this further information:

“…Mr Whiting, head of the independent Acorn School in Nailsworth, Gloucester, thinks that people should have a ‘special licence’ to buy fantasy books.”

And, only because this man is the headmaster of the school he, himself, founded, I’ll add a quote of his to make things perfectly clear:

“Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games, and Terry Pratchett, to mention only a few of the modern world’s ‘must-haves’, contain deeply insensitive and addictive material which I am certain encourages difficult behaviour in children; yet they can be bought without a special licence, and can damage the sensitive subconscious brains of young children, many of whom may be added to the current statistics of mentally ill young children.”

And, finally, but only because it is Mother’s Day, and mothers need to know how dangerous books like these can be for their children; and, also, to prove the high level of education this man has reached by displaying a sentence that gets to the core of the dangerous issue while it shows his amazing “proficiency” with the English language, please ponder this exact quote carefully:

“Children are innocent and pure at the same time, and don’t need to be mistreated by cramming their imagination that lies deep within them, with inappropriate things.”

    Presumably this headmaster has read these books….otherwise he would not know all this and if so, then he also must have been affected by them :-)

    Here’s an academic question. Can you teach properly and influence young minds if you are not yourself Pure?

    OED: Pure: ‘Not debased or corrupt, conforming absolutely to a standard of quality…..’
