a perfect example

I am fully aware that homeschooling is a very controversial topic right now.  I believe that it’s a decision that each family must make based on their current situation and limitations.  Husband and I knew this when we first discussed homeschooling our children.  But we honestly felt in our hearts that having our kiddos at home where we can guard their precious souls against some of the evil in the world was the Lord’s will for our family.

Today, as I drove behind one of the local school buses taking kids home from school, I was reminded of why we made this decision.  Sitting in the very back seats of the bus were three children who were probably around middle school age.  And these three children, with no regard for whether it was right or wrong, proceeded to give me “the bird”.

Bear in mind that I do not know these children.  I have never seen them before in my life and most likely never will again.   But they thought it was funny to show how terribly “grown up” they were.

And then I realized….just last year, my two very impressionable girls were riding a school bus just like this one and being exposed to the “grown up” children in this world.

At that moment I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that we had made the right choice for our girls.  Regardless of what anyone else says or thinks.  It is our job as parents to safeguard the hearts of our children…..and it is a job that I intend to take very seriously.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6
