An 11 year old Christian Grey!

Here at HerMamas we love to see anything that helps to promote a love of reading. If you have a child in grade school you may have recently celebrated World Book Day. Maybe your kid got to dress up as their favorite character from a book. There was probably a Harry Potter or Alice in Wonderland . At a school in London an 11 year boy came to school dressed as his favorite book character... 

Yup that's an 11 year old in a grey suit with a grey tie holding an blindfold and zipties. Yes this kid went to school dressed as Christian Grey. Understandably the teacher was a bit weirded out by this and did not allow Liam Scholes to be in any of the class pictures until he modified his costume. And now his Mom is upset. Nicola Scholes, who is also a school teacher, feels that the school and teacher overreacted. She also felt that the school was a bit hypocritical because other students were dressed as characters with guns, and a teacher was even dressed up as the lovable serial killer Dexter yet her son was called out for her sexually charged character.

I think that sending your kid to school as a kinky sex character with tools for bondage is inappropriate. I don't think an 11 year old should know any details about Christian Grey or 50 Shades of Grey. But does this upset Mom have a point?
