From Daily Focus, Alpha Omega

How many times have you been accused of sheltering your children from the real world because you homeschool? After experiencing this confrontation numerous times, I finally realized an important fact my accusers were ignoring. They sheltered their children from the real world, too. Most caring parents draw a line and set limits on what they allow their children to experience. The only difference between my sheltering and theirs was that I had simply drawn our children’s line in a different place. R-rated movies, magazines and books that promoted sex outside of marriage, violent video games, and other activities that violated God’s Word were not a part of our family life. The standards I wanted to set were for training in righteousness, not for training in the ways of the world.
