This lady I know...she home schools her children. They stay at her house and really don't interact with other children.
Well, the other day, her son (who is 15) ask me what Muslim is...and I explained it's a religion, ect...
He ask me "are you sure it's a religion?" I ask him why he wanted to know. He said he was watching the History channel and saw somethings on there that he was unsure about. He was going on about what they said and didn't understand the things they were saying.
He ask his parents and they avoided the question. So, he goes on telling me that he knows I'm smart and wanted to ask me.
They're all great people. It's not like they keep their kids locked up...I guess they just choose not broaden their perspectives.
So, I kinda felt like I was in the wrong for telling him about things. But...if he's taking an interest in History...I don't see why he shouldn't know about things. Especially since he's 15.
