Protection of Parental Rights

I'm off to a field trip today and wanted to leave this very important note up for you to read while I'm away. Hat tip to MandyMom. Thanks for the heads up!

Hey gals- please go to this site, http://parentalrights.org , to sign a petition! As Christian parents, homeschooling mothers, this is IMPORTANT!

Here's an excerpt from the site:

The precarious state of parental rights within our nation is reason enough for serious concern. With cases like these filling the courts, every parent should be concerned about the protection and preservation of their rights.

But another storm is rapidly forming on the horizon.

International law that seeks to empower the government to intrude upon the child-parent relationship is becoming an increasing threat. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), a seemingly harmless treaty with dangerous implications for American families, is approaching possible ratification by the United States.

If this treaty is made binding upon our country, the government would have the power to intervene in any child's life to advance its definition of "the best interests of the child." The scenarios that could occur—and are occurring—as a result of this dangerous notion are both manifold and frightening.

Under the UNCRC, instead of following due process, government agencies would have the power to override your parental choices at their whim because they determine what is in "the best interest of the child."

In essence, the UNCRC applies the legal status of abusive parents to all parents. This means that the burden of proof falls on the parent to prove to the State that they are good parents—when it should fall upon the State to prove that their investigation is not without cause.

I have heard of that before. It doesn't shock me though. The U.N and our goverment just want a one world order. They want to make sure everyone goes to public school and get dumbed down.(i myself was homeschooled 98% of my school years,and also i have been too public school twice so i can say i much perfered homeschool) They try to teach kids that its wrong to be independent. I hear now though,the kids they started doing saying that too,cannot really work very well in the workforce without a "team" effort.

I have zero good memories in public school,and i think that it is great that their are sooo many parents who are homeschooling now.

good luck.

"wrong to be independent" - exactly. That is why Voltaire said, "It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong." We live in fast times... and all we can do is pray and take it one day at a time.
