I do not want the government raising my children either, even when the media tries to make it sound like a good idea.
1 John 4:4 “Dear children, you belong to God. You have not accepted the teachings of the false prophets. That’s because the One who is in you is more powerful than the one who is in the world.”
God gave me my children. They are mine. I love them. I know them. I want them to be successful. I can raise them. I can educate them. In fact, it’s my job and my responsibility to do so. It is my right to do so.
The best resource I have found for keeping me updated and informed about my rights as a parent is http://www.parentalrights.org/
Have you read about the Romeike family, if not, you need to. Click here http://www.hslda.org/courtreport/V26N2/V26N201.asp
In case you haven’t signed the latest petition protecting the Romeike family, please do so. If our government will not help this family, then I doubt they would help mine or yours. http://www.hslda.org/legal/cases/romeike.asp
It seems to me that the government would encourage homeschooling. We do not add to the problem of overcrowded class rooms. We save our country’s tax payers $16 BILLION! http://ww2.onenewsnow.com/education/2013/02/15/nheri-23-million-homeschoolers-saving-taxpayers-$16b
Amen sister! Well said!
Thanks for the kind words and thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you’ll come back again soon. betty jo
When I saw that commercial being passed around FB the other day, my jaw almost broke it dropped so quickly. I could not believe the things that were coming out of her mouth. I am still appalled by it. I just, I don’t understand.
Radical Mommy, wish I could explain it to you but I’m not understanding either. However, I understand it is time for us to really be paying attention and speaking up.
