Companion piece for this morning’s Nancy Campbell piece – Daylight Robbery

Men, while the main burden of homeschooling weighs mainly on the mother, I believe it is very important for the father to provide every assistance possible. The father must encourage his wife daily for the effort and sacrifice she makes. This effort should not be taken for granted. As fathers, we should not fail to . . . 

1. Daily show interest in what the children are learning and accomplishing.
2. Help the children to understand things they find difficult to understand.
3. Step up to the plate if any of the children have a behavioral problem or need correction. Don’t leave it only to your wife.
4. Help your wife in searching for the right curriculums for your particular children.
5. Join up with a homeschool support group in your area if you feel your wife needs more encouragement.
6. Be careful about running your children to every extracurricular activity they want to be involved in. This creates a very hectic lifestyle for the mother, especially if there is a larger family.
7. Make time for your wife so she can discuss with you the things that concern her about the children’s learning. And pray for her every day as she faces this great task.

I believe that all true believers should take their children out of the public education system. We still have some godly teachers who are trying to hold up the light, but on the whole, children are now being taught from a humanist/liberal base and more and more the gay agenda is being including, plus classes on Islam. Children hang out for many hours every day in the company of peers who are usually a negative influence upon their lives.

Do we have a clear purpose for their education? If so, we will want them to receive a godly education.

Last night I was talking to my daughter-in-law and asked her what was her biggest reason for homeschooling. She replied that she did not want to be robbed of the time she would miss with her children, which adds up to thousands of hours. Over the course of their life at school, children will be away from their home for about three years of their life (that’s apart from college). And this in the most formative years of their life!

    With a ministry title like “meat for men” I have to wonder some things.

    No where does it actually say “Men get off your ass and do the dishes for once. Or make a meal so your wife doesn’t have to.”

    Can’t have men lowering themselves to a womanly standard so just appreciate them from a distance women love that.

  • Nea

    Also note that the only concerns he has to be open to listening to are about the children’s education.

  • MizzKittay

    Children have more concern than wives? This messes up everything I thought I knew about CPM… the dissent must be strong with these few.

    “We still have some godly teachers who are trying to hold up the light, but on the whole, children are now being taught from a humanist/liberal base and more and more the gay agenda is being including, plus classes on Islam.”

    A few points:
    1) Before giving home-schooling points, you should have a basic understanding of English grammar.
    2) While I love a good game of buzzword bingo, “humanist” and “liberals” are not actually synonyms and should be separated.
    3) If classes are on Islam and humanism, why aren’t the schools teaching classes on Christianity? (Oh, wait. You have no idea because you aren’t involved with your local school system.)

  • Allison the Great

    Yeah, he’s still not shouldering any of the responsibility of being a father, he’s just checking up on the mother more. That’s not being a parent, that’s being a manager, or an employer.

  • Nea

    Ah, but some of those children are *male*…

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    Meat For Men sounds like the title of a bad gay porn film…

  • B.A.

    LMFAO!

    Part of his advice is to join a homeschooling group. They are not all created equal I can assure you of that. There actually are humanist homeschooling groups that are open to families of all types. However, these groups do have rules including that you may not evangelize your religion to other families and that you must respect diverse family structures. It’s ok in those groups to say “We celebrate Halloween.” It’s not ok to hand someone a gospel tract telling them 100 reasons why their family should not be celebrating Halloween.

    The other one that always confused us when we homeschooled was Rainbow Resource Center. It’s a homeschooling supply company but I swear when I first heard the name I thought it was an outreach after school type program for gay teens.

  • Trollface McGee

    That’s what I always think… wrong kind of meat >.>

  • Trollface McGee

    I think it’s excellent that we’re including the gay agenda in public schools. It can be so confusing to keep up with it. Imagine my horror when I went to my daily Destroy Christian Marriage seminar and got the Assless-chaps Quilters Circle instead. If only I had been properly taught to update the gay agenda at 6:16 am like kids are taught these days I would be properly destroying marriage like I intended to do.
    And classes on Islam are pretty damn interesting, I’m listening to a lecture series on Middle Eastern history and there’s so much that’s not covered in schools – and my school actually studied Islam… oh, wait, that’s supposed to be a bad thing.

  • Allison the Great

    Maybe the title is a Freudian Slip for Colin.

  • Baby_Raptor

    She replied that she did not want to be robbed of the time she would miss with her children, which adds up to thousands of hours.

    Note that it’s all about her. Not her kids, or what they need, or their rights…Just her and her wants.

    People like this woman should not breed.

  • Baby_Raptor

    The schools aren’t teaching classes on Christianity because Christians are a persecuted minority, remember? We all hate them and want to brainwash them into the liberal secular homogay agenda.

  • I am truly shocked, shocked that godly men of God like Colin Campbell would think that women are even capable of educating their godly children, especially their male offspring.

    “Over the course of their life at school, children will be away from
    their home for about three years of their life (that’s apart from
    college)”

    Only three? You know we spend something like a third of our lives sleeping. If you add up the hours we spend on any consistent activity it’s going to sound like a lot at first blush. It’s really only a drop in the bucket though.

  • Rebecca Horne

    The thing about homeschooling in order to keep kids away from liberals and gays is hilarious, because my wife and I want to homeschool.

    It’s GOOD for children to learn to be away from their parents and become independent human beings. School is a great place for most children to learn how to develop their own individuality and become confident in making decisions without constant parental input. Of course, they don’t want individuality or any decisions to be made by their children without their “guidance”.

    Also; this paranoia about schools being “godless places” or whatever is so ridiculous. Small, rural schools in the Bible Belt (like my own K-12 public school with a total enrollment of about 500) are going to be full of teachers that are probably also Sunday School teachers or small group leaders or preacher’s wives (or even preachers themselves, like my Algebra II teacher). And I know that many of these CPM types live in districts like my own school district. Yes, they teach state-mandated history courses which usually involve a basic rundown of the history of Islam…and Buddhism, and Hinduism, and, yes, even Christianity. And any social studies class that doesn’t present the facts about the growing push for LGBTQA rights would be worthless. Even if they never agree with it, they’re still supposed to be “in the world but not of it”. How can they expect to have any kind of impact like they say they want to do if they don’t even try to understand the other side?

    Don’t forget Texas, where textbooks were edited so that the children would never hear the E-word. (Evolution)
