To handle the modern breed of micromanaging parent, educators are devising programs to help them separate from their kids -- and they are taking a harderNever mind the modern breed of micromanaging schools and experts, that want to teach and monitor everything from our children's eating habits to their sexual habits. We're supposed to accept their intrusive control and believe they have the best interest of the child at heart.
line on especially intrusive parents.
Educator and author Rosalind Wiseman calls parents who try to set the agenda for schools "queen bee moms" and "kingpin dads." What's ironic about Ms. Wiseman is that she is the co-founder of the Empower Program, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating teenagers about violence. So it's alright for a complete stranger to fret over my children but I'm supposed to back off or be labeled a "Queen Bee". Sorry Ms. Wiseman you've got it all backwards. It is you and your social engineers who need to quit attempting to parent our nation's children and resenting the involvement of those whom God has entrusted to their care. It is the parents of this nation who need to collectively say to our nation's schools and the "experts" who want to raise them for us - BACK OFF! They are NOT your children!
I hope parents will finally see that our nation's government schools are a conduit for social engineering meant to replace the parent with the state as the primary influence in children's lives. For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear let them understand before it's too late.
