N.C.F.C.: Carnival too provocative for children

With the kick-off of the Carnival Season, the National Committee for Families and Children, N.C.F.C., has issued a statement saying they are “deeply concerned” about what they characterise as the increasingly provocative costumes and dancing. The agency says that although it is the right of all children to participate in the national celebrations and other cultural and artistic activities, they believe there are more meaningful and age appropriate ways for them to join in. The N.C.F.C. is urging organizers of the September Celebrations, parents, and concerned members of the public, to explore child-cantered ways of encouraging children to express their artistic abilities and national pride.
