What parent cant identify with a scene like this one at least on occasion? No matter what generation you relate to, none of us can relate to what kids go through in public schools these days.
Can you relate?
Yes, we can recall some instances of childhood cruelty like mocking and bullying. But, unless you are somehow connected to the school system you have no idea what kids today go through.
Even if you do work in the school system at any level, the "stealth" tactics are sometimes so subtle you just dont identify with them. Children today are routinely subjected to bullying, extortion and often physical abuse.
And thats from just one faction of the social hierarchy that goes on in public schools today!
How it begins
It begins with a bit of shoving in the hallway and can progress as far as kids having to "pay for protection" or even worse. School administrators do try, but it¡¦s a sad testimonial that we must now have armed guards patrolling our public schools.
Teasing, taunting and public humiliation have gone far beyond what we went through as children.
We havent even begun to discuss the "education" that our school age children are supposed to be getting in public school.
Maybe you are one of those people who can afford private school. Thats wonderful, but sadly that is not an option for most people. And, even private schools can have their own brand of social and educational drawbacks.
Is there a solution?
The answer is yes, there is an answer. The solution is home schooling. However, when you think of home schooling you may be under the mistaken impression that you do not have the skills required to teach your children, which is another myth.
