Do You or Should Tell Your Kids the "Truth" About The World
Especially those that homeschool their kids. Do you guys tell them about JFK assasination, Federal reserve,Bankers, Illuminati, Rothschilds, God, chemtrails, vaccines,etc... or should you allow them to be normal and fit in so they won't be outcasts and picked on when they do go to public school or out in the real world?

Yes! Stop lying to your kids. and prepare them for the reality that they will face once you're gone or before you're gone. You can't protect your children from everything but you can arm them with the truth. You can teach your children about self defense so sexual predators cannot kidnap them. you can teach women to defend themselves against domestic violence,etc... You have to teach your kids the real truth because you are their parent, stop saying,"Well, they need to be just kids." NO! they need to learn what is really going on so they can learn how to prepare to help themselves.

Don't burden them but give them the truth as is age appropriate.

An example would be telling your six year old that points out the pretty white lines in the sky that those aren't clouds and they weren't there when you were a child.

Re: Do You or Should Tell Your Kids the "Truth" About The World
it began when my 4 year old Nela said:
dad, i think the devil (easter) is someones dad hidden in clothes ... what should i say ?! i agreed and we smiled, thats all

On Christmas, the santa claus is a US variant of our little Jesus... she said:

the red one is not ours, its american, we have a little boy called jesus, he wears an ordinary training suit and a jacket from second-hand.. it struck me, i am no longer able to translate the world to her

she got it in a nice way
really happy from that

i told here the truth about this place
that we are on a planet in a big universe,
thats all she needed
life out there i asked ? she looked at me, for sure daddy :D

You wait until they can understand such things, without disrupting their development heavily towards THAT.

Exactly. Tell them this.

And that they are something, but don't tell them they cause cancer and mental diseases and block out the sun.

You see?

That would be overwhelming.

But they should grow up knowing they are not clouds. That planes put them down.

Re: Do You or Should Tell Your Kids the "Truth" About The World
I think it's important to give kids a foundation for perceiving "truth."

Teach them to spend time in perfect silence every day. Teach them to get in touch with and come to perceive and know what is inside of them.

Most people call this a "conscience." I think Plato referred to it as "The Light of All Truth."

Teach them how to trust what's inside of them and to measure the works of the world around them against what is inside of them. Draw them out with questions.

For instance.....bring up situations that they've been exposed to, (like something that happened at school or at a family members' house). Go over the details and help them to look within themselves to determine how they should interpret the right or wrong of it.

Teach them that it is not only OKAY, but that it is CORRECT to be at odds with people around them when it comes to matters of conscience. Teach them the importance of not judging other people...but to judge themselves as much as possible for how well they adhere to the truth inside them.

For example......my sister took my boys out for lunch on their b-days. When they were out, one of them had an empty soda cup and my sister told them it was okay to throw it on the ground. My son was conflicted and didn't know what to do. When he got home and told me about it, (he is six), I asked him what he did. He told me that he held onto the cup until he found a trash can. I asked him why he had done that. He told me that it didn't feel right to litter on purpose. I used that as an opportunity to point out that that is how it works. Following conscience.

I know it doesn't really answer your question, OP....but I feel, (as a mother of small kids myself), that this is an important foundation to lay for preparing kids for the world.
