Pregnant school teacher slammed by Hong Kong parents for letting class touch her stomach

A pregnant elementary teacher has been criticised by worried parents after she allowed her class to touch her belly and feel the baby moving inside.

According to an article in SkyPost, parents slammed the woman for exposing the children to the concept of sex and pregnancy at a young age.

The case came to light after the woman’s husband posted about the incident on Facebook, claiming his wife had become depressed as she’d been ordered to keep her distance from her class.

The post subsequently went viral, with some commentators mocking the parents for their “Stone Age” views, and others saying sex education should be taught at home, not school.

We’re guessing the stork still delivers babies in many Hong Kong households, and women get inexplicably fat for nine months right before the child arrives.
