Parents, did you know that you forfeit your legal rights as parents when your children are in the “care” of their school. “In Loco Parentis” means “in place of the parent.” It is the legal responsibility of  schools to act in place of parents when students are in their care.

Do you really trust your child’s school to act on your behalf when making decisions for your child? Do you trust them in every case, knowing that they DO NOT have to inform you of their decisions or actions? Do you trust your child, under their authority to properly represent the standards and values of your family, and do you trust the school to respect those standards? How about in the case of birth control or, heaven forbid, a pregnancy? Wouldn’t you love to know that the child you love is dealing with these issues and help them deal with them appropriately? The schools WILL NOT inform you if your daughter comes to them first, and they WILL counsel them to take actions that most of your would strongly disagree with.

It’s time to take our children back! They are your children, not the schools’.

Do you have questions about the legalities of homeschooling? We recommend EVERY homeschool family become members of HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association).
