In this particular case, there definitely are.
What is beneficial to one, is not to others. You can bet this will be compulsory too.
Here's an example of the kind of people who will teach kids to control their emotions:
A school goes into lockdown mode over a student carrying a shovel that a teacher asked them to get out of his car for a discussion on WWII. Idaho prompted the school’s “resource officer” to call for the full lockdown. None of the purported adults on campus had the presence of mind to ask the student what was going on. The pro-state media called it a "'military-style shovel' —a cosmetic designation."
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
