The first mistake [when raising children] is to abandon your children to the mercy of daycare, kindergarten, preschool, and school. To strangers, to hirelings who will desert the flock. Instead, in Deuteronomy, parents are commanded to teach their children all the commandments of the Lord, when they lie down, rise up, and so on. In Proverbs, the father constantly exhorts his son to give him his heart, to hear his words, to obey the law of his mother, to receive his instruction. The Great Commission tasks us to make disciples of all the nations, teaching them to obey everything that God has commanded. And Paul tells parents to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Finally, the apostle Bob in his epistle to the Equivocators, tells parents not to shelter their children. Not.
This is a serious job. This is not something that parents can or should easily delegate, certainly not to the state schools. Our children’s curriculum is supposed to be the law of God, everything He has commanded us…in other words, everything in the Bible and everything the Bible applies to, which is the whole of life and creation.
