I am glad my children are deprived from the world by being homeschooled, no cable TV, sit with us in church and they are each others best friend.
Okay, homeschooled, whatever. No Cable TV, I can live with. Sit with us at church seems awfully restrictive, but fine. But no friends?! Jesus! Way to keep the kids in the cult!
Don't let anyone convince you your kid needs friends!
Yeah, who needs real social skills in this world?
I could have done without almost all my childhood friends, and this world isn't any better than it was 20 years ago.
So...because you can look back and cut your friends out of your life means you should be able to force your kids to be hermits? Greeeeeat. Here's a hint. They deserve the right to decide the same for themselves.
My children are my responsibility and I refuse to turn them over to the wolves of the society, whatever disguise it wears!
You are doing them a far greater disservice than anyone else could ever hope to do. Congratulations. You will have two children unable to cope with the world when they grow up.
