Homeschooling doesn't keep our children free of hurtful situations. As much as we would hope that it would, homeschooling can't shelter them from learning life lessons.
We have watched our children each go through difficult circumstances. In the midst of one of these now, I need wisdom and discernment, and a muzzle on my heart and mouth. I desperately do not want to make things worse by overreacting (or underreacting).
If I had heeded my husband's mindset about all of these things, we would all be so much better off!
Ladies, listen to hubby--his instincts are given to him by the Lord as the head of the home.
