This Post May Contain Potential Triggers For Weak Or Self-Entitled Souls
Those who followed my blog from the beginning may have noticed a sudden lack in posts. The downward trend having started when my Aunt passed away last year, it has simply become worse as time wore on. Daily prompts have no longer held any interest for me, blogging challenges simply frustrated me, sharing recipes or day to day things about my family felt mundane. All this and more stemming from the loss of someone who, though I didn’t know her as well as I’d of liked, I had grown attached to.
Of late, a new thing has happened though that has added misery into the lives of my family. My daughters, two both very bright minded and intelligent little girls, are being forced down a slow aching path of intellectual-stuntedness. How is this so? They recently passed, as of the starting school year for 2017-2018 classes, your child must be 6 years old by August 1st. It used to be that the child would need to be 5 years of age before the start of the school year, or in some places before Sept 1st. As it stands now, my children who are already learning to write their letters and read on their own, will not be able to be enrolled in any kind of actual school until they are 7 years old.
This is a travesty, a thing like this should not be condoned. The idea of changing the age as well as the age by date ought to be considered blasphemous. Sadly, I’ve seen no outrage. No contempt. Not so much as a negative word have I heard from any fellow parents. Granted I am homeschooling my children, I cannot enroll them officially as being homeschooled for, at minimum, another 3 years. The state won’t even recognize them as having done school work until such a time as they are considered age appropriate.
This and so many other things have been ravaging my mind of late. I am positively livid to the point that my ability to focus has been diminishing. Self-righteous children run rampant thinking the world owes them, entitled miscreants act as though they are better than the working class, while children run about laughing at the people who are actually behaving like adults and doing their best to raise their children. This behavior not only enrages me but it makes me wonder just how much longer the human race will continue on with people making a mockery of parenting and being an adult in general.
When did it become okay to make fun of people who work for a living to put food on their table and take care of their family? When did it become okay for people to mock parents for doing what they feel is right by their child in the best interest of growing up to be a respectable human being? This lack of respect and care astonishes and disgusts me.
