As each day passed with my heart burdened to homeschool, I stood by & watched my son begging me to keep him home every day. I'd pick him up after school & he'd be so sad & down & wouldn't eat. He told the doctor he wished 'that tomorrow wouldn't come & he didn't want to live til then, because he was being put on display in front of all the students by his teachers. And for doing what? Fidgeting, moving his legs, his arms, rubbing his eyes, laughing? Goodness me! If a child couldn't do what was natural to them then what does that leave for the rest of humanity??
I finally pulled him out of that secular system that was diluting his mind.God has given every human being a brain to use for wisdom and knowledge. And I needed my son to be free from that 'regimented' uniformly routine of 'you can't do this and you can't do that', SSShhh! Don't talk back when I'm accusing you of something' and "no, if you were absent on the day of the test, I can't make time for you to do the test!".................I, and ONLY I, as a parent , have the right to tell my son what to do when he's speaking. I brought him up & taught him & prepared him for life, only to what? Hand him to strangers to abuse, ridicule & bully him? No wonder he didn't believe me when I'd say ' You're special. You're loved. Do your best in everything.Trust in God for your answers in life.Don't return evil for evil.Respect your elders & those in authority etc.'..........
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. PROVERBS22:6So here we go............let's do what is right for our children! LET'S HOMESCHOOL!!!!
til next time, Smiley :)
