Professor: Reading to Your Kids, Having a Good Family, Is Unfair to Others

The progressive fairness police have found another target of supposed privilege that they wish to see eliminated. Namely, parents reading to their children.

According to a professor at the University of Warwick in England, parents who read to their children are “unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children.” Parents should not seek to give their children a head start on reading or language comprehension, because other parents may not be doing the same.

Only to a progressive, nanny state proponent, could this idea make any sense. Progressives see one person’s success as harmful to others, and ability as unfair.

“I don’t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,” says Professor Adam Swift.
