When your child goes to school, and takes a history class, and the book says what happened on 9/11/01, will he get an A if he says that he thinks other than what the book says? Quoting: ZOMBIE_KILLER
Does public education allow for free thoughts and ideas on past events?
No, it doesnt.
If anything, public schools are a grooming field for the future leaders and taxpayers to be conditioned to accept these things, AND be dumbed down.
Our schools, nationwide, are so far UNDER the global standsrds.
This is another reason why I want to feed him as much info as I can.
I dont bombard my son with info, a simple well placed comment or peice of literature will get the ball rolling, then his research starts, amazes me with what he comes up with. Just keep in mind he is still a child and allow him time to be a child.
I feel its very important to allow him to do things on his own, I dont force anything, including sports.
Have you taken your son to any memorial services, or had him listen to any discussions?
Or watched any C.T. movies with him around?
Imagination is a kids best friend, and by design of the times, they are losing it.
Too many sports, cartons, play-dates, all that crap.
I spend at least one whole day being a kid with him, no matter how mundane or silly it may be to me.
Just to let him be a 9yr old kid and enjoy it while he can.
Who knows what waits ariound the corner, and he may have to grow up fast if anything bad happens in his lifetime.
I really hope it doesnt, but we have no sure way of knowing we wont face another attack, or disaster that could change things dramatically.
