This is not going to sound good.
This is so inappropriate, prejudicial, and likely sexist of me but I am having a really hard time. My daughters preschool (she’s 2.5) has hired a male teacher. They’ve done this before but the male teachers have always ended up in the older wing. They’ve hired one now for my daughters age group and I just don’t feel okay about it. I know, I know. I KNOW. but I’m still having a hard time. I guess I just don’t like the idea of a male teacher helping my daughter go to the bathroom or wiping her butt or whatever. I also was abused sexually by a close male relative as a child. I’ve done a lot of therapy and research since then and have learned that most abusers are close trusted family, friends, etc. I feel like a teacher falls in that category. How can I get over this? Or do I not get over it and request she be changed to a new room???
