One of the lies that is so prevalent today is that unless you have a diploma, a degree, and experience with education, you are not capable, and most definitely not qualified to teach your own children. This is a LIE that sprouts directly out of Socialism.
You don't need a meaningless piece of paper to prove you are capable. period.
(Or shall I say, you shouldn't be required to have this piece of paper. In some liberal states like ours, the government has decided that you must have a college degree or go through classes before you're considered qualified.)
What gives me more qualification to teach my children, than that they ARE MY CHILDREN???
I strongly believe that a mother who has brought up her kids in the fear and admonition of the Lord has greatly surpassed the school system in educating them, regardless of the qualifying papers she holds.
“Process kids like sardines, and don’t be surprised when they come out oily and dead.” J.T. Gatto The Underground History of American Education
“Administration covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters can not penetrate, to rise above the crowd.
The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting; such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which Government is the shepherd. ~Alexis De Tocqueville
This is exactly what the Public Schools are doing to a majority of American children.
God placed kids into families for a reason. He knew that their ultimate needs are:
1. A leading father who is priest, phropet, protector, and provider for the family
2. A loving mother who is diligent in providing, teaching, nurturing, and taking care of their physical and spiritual health. Both parents share in the role of bringing up their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
3. A home environment to shape their character, build their faith, protect them, encourage them, and strengthen them in their relationships with family and friends.
