A mom wants 'Sleeping Beauty' banned from her son's class for promoting inappropriate behavior


A mother in England is taking issue with "Sleeping Beauty" being part of her son's school reading, our affiliate WZTV reported.

The Newcastle Chronicle says mom Sarah Hall feels the book promotes an inappropriate sexual message since it tells children it's OK to kiss a woman while she's asleep.

With rise of the #MeToo movement -- just named Time magazine's Person of the Year -- and a wave of sexual harassment allegations, Hall says books like "Sleeping Beauty" don't help the situation.

In a tweet Hall writes "Tell you what, while we are still seeing narratives like this in school, we are never going to change ingrained attitudes to sexual behaviour #MeToo #consent #mysonissix"
