This is a guest post from Elaine, a radical sister in Christ after my own heart who is a mother, homeschooler, author and blogger over at RadicalChristianWoman.com. I asked her to write on home education in the final days as she is an experienced homeschooler of six, and she has given us some amazing and practical advice for preparing our children for the Kingdom and the final days from the home classroom.
Men in white outfits stood menacingly outside a playground full of happy children. At first, no one noticed. They stepped closer. No one cared. They stepped again. Nothing. It was only when they were already upon the direct border that people started to panic.
We know that Satan has an agenda against our children. Especially in our school systems. We can see it outlined in the Common Core curriculum and the teaching of evolution. Our teachers feel it as they are constantly stripped of their ability to control the children in their own classroom for fear of offended parents, essentially making them weaponless warriors. Parents are overworked and too tired to spend an extra three hours on the homework required each night of elementary students.
Thus homeschooling in the final days becomes a viable resource to parents wanting to fight the constant pull on their children’s souls.
While homeschooling gives us fabulous opportunity, we should not teach without recognizing that even our homeschooled children may grow to face predicaments we never had to experience.
