Denise’s post “I am not the Enemy” reminds us that we parents are the ones responsible for our children–not their teachers, not their coaches, not their catechists, not their doctors, not the local in-school birth-control clinic.
It is time for parents to understand that being in the driver’s seat as a parent means more than just sitting behind the wheel of the minivan. It is time for institutions to abandon their adversarial stance towards parents. They are to cooperate with my agenda for my child, not fight it. No one loves my child more than I do. I am not the enemy. I am the parent.
Read the whole thing. And don’t be afraid to take back your kids. They’re your kids.
