The overwhelming success of ‘The Squid Game‘, released on September 17, 2021 on Netflix, has managed to rescue certain children’s games that almost everyone knows, such as English hide and seek or rope throwing. However, and despite the fact that the television series is for those over 16 years of age, those who have taken up these hobbies, marked by the sadistic nature of the series, have been children.
‘The squid game’
“A couple of days ago, the children of 8 and 9 years (3rd and 4th grade of Primary) were playing what apparently seemed the game of” One, two, three, English chick “, but it was “Red Light, Green Light” from ‘The Squid Game’“A teacher began by stating the situation.” Game with a little song included and simulated shooting at the participants, falling to the ground pretending to be dead, as in the series“, he also added.

This teacher’s complaint was also accompanied by an appeal to the parents of those 8 and 9-year-old children who had let their children see their children, along with them, in a series of extreme violence. “Fathers and mothers, it scares us that you see well normalizing violence. It horrifies us and makes us sick“wrote the teacher in her Twitter thread, after expressing her displeasure at seeing how her students imitated the tests of Korean fiction.
The teacher’s appeal has not been the only one. A school in San Sebastián de los Reyes has also given parents a wake-up call, requesting that they not facilitate the viewing of ‘The Squid Game’ for their children. In addition, this school has also launched a curious ban: No costumes related to the series on Halloween.
