As someone who has worked from home for 15 years, I can totally relate if I ever needed to actually go into an office to work after all these years!
Birds of a feather!
Not necessarily. Both my mother and I prefer it cold in our homes. Anything above 70 and it gets very uncomfortable. I keep it 70 during the day and go down to 69 at night along with also having a tower fan right next to my side of the bed which lowers the overnight temp even more.
One single minute in that house would be considered “extended” imo. lol
How do you know that’s what is being said while they teach history? Have you seen the actual lessons and curriculums that show this level of detail? I’m very curious because I haven’t personally seen any of that. All I’ve seen and heard are people like you who don’t want that part of history taught in schools at all. I can’t figure out why.
How is it racist to teach kids about slavery? That’s such a strange thing to say.
Or she has a HUGE appetite!
Exactly! I recently read that the Texas state senate passed a law that will not allow public school to teach Native American history, Martin Luther King’s “I Had a Dream”, and cannot disparage the KKK. My 13 year old son asked how kids in that state could learn about those things if not at school and I told him that parents who want their children to have a diverse and HONEST history lesson would teach them those things at home.
Parents need to remember that the schools (no matter where they live) can only do so much. Even those who DO teach real history, only briefly go over some important topics and don’t give a deeper dive into them. That’s what parents are for.
Growing up, my parents used to take us to museums (natural history and science, mostly), historical landmarks/locales, and even day trips to the library every weekend. We visited old churches and castles (we lived mostly in Europe because my dad was in the USAF and my mom worked for the federal gov’t for the military).
We even watched documentaries and nature shows at home too!
I’m in my mid-40’s now and realize that I learned more from what I was taught outside of school, in regard to history, than I did sitting through countless hours of history classes and homework.
My dad is a lifelong subscriber to the National Geographic magazine and within recent years even the Smithsonian magazine. He and my mom still visit museums and historical sites (pre-pandemic, at least) even though there are no children trailing behind them these days. lol
What exactly do you have against “critical race theory”? I don’t see a problem with teaching children the truth of history. Brushing things under the rug in order to make Little Billy feel better about himself at school is not productive or smart.
