Everyone can be positively joyous about their PS. They can do happy dances about how things like this could never happen.
Personally, I’m not taking that chance. One shot, I have one shot with my kids innocence. All it takes is one gung ho educator and it’s all gone.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
While there is no harm in some basic education on the facts of life -(I had it in 5th grade. They had a girls only talk about the changes to expect growing up and a similar boys only talk for them but NOT sex ed)- at that age, IMO, they should still be encouraged to think that the other still has cooties.
For as long as possible.
