Schools have become war zones. Some are unsafe spaces where overt physical acts of violence are regular occurrences. Others have become centers where children are indoctrinated with liberal ideals rather than places to learn reading, writing and arithmetic.
Parents have the ultimate authority to raise and educate their children into mature adults. What happens when the educator begins to take the place of the parent? What happens when parents aren't even allowed to see the curriculum being taught? What happens when the values of our faith are attacked and devalued in the education of our children?
It's time to take back the responsibility of "training our children the way in which they should go!"
What can we do?
Teach your children to think critically. Children will naturally development attachments to their teachers. They grow to trust them as a parental figure. Because not everything they hear in school is true, parents must teach their children to think critically and the apply the scripture to any and all ideas presented to them.
Get involved in schools and fight for your right to choose what your children are learning. If we don't, the government will gain more power and it will become harder for parents to actually raise their children. When parents take responsibility for the education of their children, great things can happen for you, your family, your children.
The country of tomorrow is being taught in the classroom today. We need to understand that there are people who want to tear our children away from what is Biblically right, wholesome, virtuous, and instill in them some radical view of what it means to be a human being today. We can not let that happen. The consequences are too great. Our kids are too precious to leave them to this fate.

Remember, there are two kinds of fire in the world: One that burns and consumes and one that burns and empowers. May God's word and God's love burn brightly in you, giving you the strength to face any fire. Until next time, little embers!
