Smutty Sex Talk With Kids

School officials were busy defending themselves after it came out in the news that a middle school was teaching the kiddies about anal sex, sexual fantasy and saying "I like you" as ways to express sexual feelings.  Article.

 “The curriculum it is a part of, it aligns with national standards around those topics, and it’s part of our curriculum in the school district." 

National sex ed standards about genital touching and fantasy.  What country do I live in again?

Anyway.  In Normal People Land, we all agree that no teacher should be talking with any child about sex, sexual matters or anything having to do with any area a swimsuit from 1952 would cover.  I'm sorry, but JUST because someone has a teaching certificate, should not mean that they get to discuss ejaculation with a 12-year-old.  I mean, that's creepy.  You are gross if you think that.

"How much sexual guidance and instruction should the government offer our kids?" asks blogger Matt Walsh. "None. What percentage of your child’s government education should be comprised of sexual enlightenment? Zero percent. How many times in a given school day should the phrase 'genital touching' be uttered by a teacher to a classroom of students? Less than once. Actually, let’s be safe and say zero."

Of course everyone and their dog came out of the woodwork and declared that if the school didn't teach the kidlets about these things, that no one would.  As if 1. that were a bad thing, and 2. it were anybody's business how much the kid understood on this issue.  :/

  1. The image I can't get out of my mind right now. 10th grade. Health. Male teacher.. flushed face.... other very noticeable reaction to a much tamer discussion. Ewww, ew, ew. Now kids will have to deal with that at an even younger age. Looking forward to homeschooling my grandkids.

  2. words fail me.
    We learned about the human reproductive system in year 9 science, the classes covered plant reproduction and the life cycles of insects too, egg to larvae to cocoon etc, so it was all very basic with nothing extra being taught. Certainly nothing about actual sex, but we were mostly 13-14 at the time and I'm pretty sure 99% knew about sex by then. We just didn't have personal experience.

    1. Exactly. And when I went to school, they separated the boys and girls and prepared the girls for a "special time" and handed out brochures about maxi-pads with flowers on them. About as detailed as it got.

  3. I do agree with you on this one. I feel like middle age, although the onset of puberty, is not exactly the right age to teach sex ed. One reason is the lack of intellectual maturity of some kids over the subject matter and they might misconstrue the objective of such talks. I feel though that the reason it is passed on to the officials is because the parents at home refuse to educate their children about it, even at the right age, which results to sexual promiscuity and misinformation among the kids.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
