So my husnad comes to me and says...."Guess who our kid wants to be for history day"...

Jesus Christ.

I find this hilarious because we are not a religious family. I am not really sure how he even knows about Jesus.
The best part is my Atheist husband trying to help him with his homework.

That is all.

:D

  • Those are some big shoes to fill. I'm guessing a public school might discourage that choice & have him pick someone else.

  • they shouldn't discourage it, he was a historical figure, a living person. Whether or not he was a the Messiah, walked on water, turned water to wine is debatable, but his mere existence isn't.


    Great that your husband and you are supporting him, many parents may not have. Though it is kind of funny imagining him helping him with the assignment. lol

  • Maybe his choice means he's curious & would like to learn more about Him.

  • He is in a charter school that studies different religions as part of their history sections.

  • I think it's sort of awesome lol. Are you guys approaching it from an historical perspective? I mean, clearly, it's history day, but how are you working it?

    We aren't religious either but I think it'd be cool for a kid to explore the historical eras that the bible was written in

  • That's awesome, lol

    When our kids did history day, they also had to dress the part and we had a history night at school where all the kids set up their displays and wore the appropriate attire. Is this similar to what your son is doing?
    I ask because, if it is, I would love to see pictures, lol

  • He is in first grade so we kept it pretty simple. He had to write a paragraph and will have to dress up and act the part too. He is very excited!

    Actually, in my public school district we allow all students to express their religious beliefs. If they want to do a report on their religion, they can.If they want to hold prayer circles at school, they can. It is part of their freedom of speech. I as an employee however am not allowed these privileges by the way.
