I think the response from children will primarily be positive. I believe it will be more of a positive response because children are typically more accepting to new ideas because they have not been around long enough to develop a strong opinion. Drags reading to children would help show the children what they will run into later in life, but is not the most important activity children should worry about. Evansville parents should let their child go if they believe that it would be an educational boost for the kids awareness to society.
I think Evansville kids would respond to the goal of the event by noticing the life's of the people they saw and understanding that its not for them and they should grow up to be a different kind of person.
Evansville children will surely have a lot of questions about the Drag Queens. I believe that this event will have 2 sides to it as far as the outcome, one of them being that kids will be very amazed and interested with them, and the other being that some could be a little scared because of the extravagant hair and makeup they wear. I can see the children having a lot of questions for them, but it's not a bad thing for them to get exposed this way. Some parents may want them to meet the Drag Queens while their doing something beneficial like reading them stories, rather than seeing one out in public who may not be as nice. With them being just kids, you wouldn't have to go in depth about what exactly a drag queen is. As far as they'd know, it's just someone with a lot of makeup on.
The drag queen story hour may be just a tad bit much for the kids of Evansville. I do not think that the kids will pay attention to them reading as they will pay attention to what they look like. Most kids under the age of 11 shouldn't even know what a drag queen is in my opinion. Some kids that are more timid and shy will tend to be scared of the way they look and others may make fun of the way they look. I believe that these drag queens want attention but don't do it at a kids event do it involving something else or for young adults like teenagers to adults.
Evansville kids may respond to the goal of the Evansville Public Library "Drag hour" event in many ways. As I am no longer a kid, I am already exposed to and knowledgeable of this hot topic.I think younger children may respond better than most people of my age. Since drag is becoming mainstream, why not expose it to them at a young age? They will be exposed no matter what, so why not do it while they are young? And for those who do not want their kids to go, they do not have to go. It will not affect them at all besides the fact you they have a narrow minded child that isn't accepting of other people's lifestyles.
The Evansville library is host a event for drag queens to read to kids. These kids most likely won't respond to event the way people want. More than likely their just gonna see another person reading a story to them. They'll think that those people look, and dress kinda funny and might make a few jokes but they won't care as much as the adults and the kids will miss the hidden meaning of this event. The kids are more interested in the books than the person reading them unless its Santa.
I feel the kids wont act as negative as the parents for the event. These kids are pretty young and might not understand it. All of the drama and backlash is coming from the parents and adults. I think the goal that EVPL was trying to achieve was to get someone in the library that was different and would interact with all the kids.
How might the kids react to the drag queens respond to the event. The kids might go to the event and get a positive vibe from them . The kids could get a huge life lesson from the event at the library. They could learn about the reality of the real world.
Drag story hour will have both a positive and negative reaction I believe. Some kids wont know whats going on or the fact that it is a man dressed as a woman. some kids might get scared of a completely different concept of life being thrown at them.
How might Evansville kids respond to the goal of the event? Evansville kids might not understand of it. But as they used to it and it will get better. I think for children will be easier. They likes to learn and to do new things.
Vanderburgh County Public Library is hosting an event where drag queens are now able to read to children. The drag queen story hour will maybe bring a positive model to the children, but what will the "drag queens" say to our children? You'll never know and that the library is hosting an event where children come and hear a story about a book from them. But I do agree that it could be a positive model but could turn bad if not watched carefully.
Evansville Kids Response About Queens Story Hour? Is a positive thing for students to attend by learning and seeing new things. Also you never know how kids would react at the same time. Because their so young so by explaining what, the kids are about to get into they will understand more.
The library is hoping this Drag Hour will open kids minds and have them be ok with drag queens. The younger kids will probably Be scared and not know what to do because they wear crazy makeup, hair and dresses. They wont care that a guy is dressed as a girl just that they were nice. The drag queens are reading and singing with the kids so younger ones will put a positive memory to drag queens. Older kids will really be weirded out and make fun of a guy dressed as a girl. After the story they might feel ok and fine with the ideas of drag queens. The experience will be a lot more positive than negative.
