Free from "bondage"
Someone asked me the other day, "Why in the world would you homeschool???"
I wasn't offended, although maybe I SHOULD have been.
He didn't "get it".
Why should he?
Having NO KIDS, he couldn't understand.
He couldn't understand why I would want to keep them with me.
He couldn't understand why I would WANT to be with them ALL DAY, EVERY DAY.
He couldn't understand that sometimes "sheltering" them from the world IS my intent.
I do NOT think that sheltering them from negativity, worldly views, or others peoples opinions is a BAD THING.
I look at it like a BLESSING.
I am in control...for the moment, of what they see,hear,and encounter.
I WANT to be in control.
I WANT to see them thru this journey, holding their hand...if need be.
I want my daughters to stay SWEET and INNOCENT.
I want my sons to be RESPECTFUL and HONORABLE.
I want them to be free of the BONDAGE that comes with the views of the OUTSIDE world - and what it tells them they SHOULD BE.
