My daughter goes to a parochial school. And, by and large I'm happy with it..I'm not a member of their church (I do attend another church)..but it hasn't caused any problems...but something happened last month that I wasn't happy about and then last week another thing. I felt both things were developmentally very off for 1st graders. (I'm not sure if it's the school or the teacher, but I intend to find out) Last month..they discussed graphically the events of 9-11. I thought I better find out ahead if they do anything else like that...well I've waited too late because last week they had a service project to help single pregnant women who need help. I'm fine with that too...I"m not fine with how it was presented. My daughter said "it was to help women who decided not to kill their baby!" Geez! We have only just discussed how babies are made. I truly feel if they want to talk about this to such young children they should have told the parents first. What do you ladies think? I asked another parent in carpool who is a member of the church and they were upset too that the parents hadn't been told. I really feel like this is something that should be left to 5th maybe 6th grade? I'm not sure..I just really wasn't ready to talk about this anytime soon.
