yesterday i posted a question about homeschooling. today my question is, anyone scared to raise their kids in this violent disgusting world? im sorry but i opened my yahoo site to read the news and a boy murdered and decapitated his sister and i cant. eveyday is another murder story, every day is another person killing someone, or another child going missing. my goodness, i just want to move to a desolate area of the words and be left alone to raise my kids in seclusion. anyone else have days like this? where they are scared well terrfied for their childs future? or terrified about this world going down the crapper? im absolutely disgusted today. and more and more i know my fears about the world are validated. i wish i was wrong.Answer Question

Unfortunately it happens all the time and way before us. You just didn't hear it as often because technology was not what it is today. I'm scared, but I don't want to live my life that way or bring my children up to be in fear of living their lives. Doesn't matter if you go to a public school, private school or home school the dangers are still there. We are not safe in our own homes as we would like to think. Anything can happen anywhere at anytime. We just have to live our lives to the fullest at this present time and pray.

Do you really think the world is a scarier place today than it was 100 years ago? 200? 1000? I don't! I think the dangers that we face are very different than they were in the past. 200 years ago the city of London was paralyzed with fear because of a serial killer nicknames Jack the Ripper. 1000 years ago life was very harsh. Disease, violence and the very fight for survival is enough to make our world seem like a picnic.
I choose not to dwell on the ugly things in life. I teach my children how best to protect themselves and how to keep safe, and then we focus on all the beautiful things that life in the 21st century has to offer.
