Here's the point. Parents, there are some very silly, yet very destructive and popular myths that can screw up your family. Be sure you don't fall for these lies.
- Myth #1: Homeschooling will cause your kids to be social retards.
- Myth #2: Putting your kid in sports (or dance, piano, etc.) will help them develop winning character.
Bottom line, if you want your kid to play sports and attend school outside of home, that's fine. That's your decision as a parent. But don't think that they need those institutions and activities for character and social development. There's simply no truth to that. In fact, they may pick up more negative than positive through their participation in these things.
What they do need is for Dad and Mom to set a godly example, get active and intentional about discipling them, and build a close, loving relationship with them.
