In October, Patch asked readers how they felt about one parent's view that "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" condoned bullying.
Specifically, blogger DadCamp wrote that the show sends the wrong message to children because of its "continuous teasing and bullying"
It's not the first time a parent has spoken out against a classic children's program with such a claim.
Last December, news spread that author and special ed professor George Giuliani said that "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was also a program laden with the theme of bullying, considering how much Rudolph was an outsider due to his glowing red nose. Giuliani has written a book titled "No More Bullies at the North Pole," which re-tells the story of Rudolph.
What do you think? Does "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" send the wrong message and condone bullying? Or is the claim taking an extreme aim at a children's classic? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
