A great reason for homeschooling

I love this thought:

There is no absurdity so palpable but that it may be firmly planted in the human head if you only begin to inculcate it before the age of five, by constantly repeating it with an air of great solemnity.
-Arthur Schopenhauer, philosopher (1788-1860)

I believe I have a responsibility from God to teach my children.  And I am very slow to trust the government.

I hope you won't be offended if I point out that the juxtaposition of that quote and your own reply might be viewed as ironic, to the non Christian.

I agree that there is a bit of irony here.

I do see a differnce between a government trying to tell everyone want to think and believe and each person doing his best to find the truth.
