I've been sad listening to the news all week long about the Griego Family who were from my state. A mother, father, and three kids (ages 9 and under) were all murdered by their 15 year old son/brother. It's so hard to comprehend how things could have gone so terribly wrong for something like this to happen. There are just so many unanswered questions right now.
One of the things that really frustrates me is that the media is so quick to judge and come up with their own answers. The fact that this child and his siblings were being homeschooled is something that keeps coming up. In fact I just finished reading an article in the New York Daily News that stated the following as it's headline: " New Mexico homeschooled teen Nehemiah Griego accused of murdering family, planned to keep killing at local Walmart ".
If this kid was being educated in the public school system, I highly doubt that the headlines would have read "New Mexico public school teen......"
I guess you all get my point. I just get frustrated with how the media always has to throw that in whenever something goes wrong with a child who is being homeschooled. It's almost as if homeschooling is to blame for why this child decided to murder his family. We hear of horrendous acts that take place on a daily basis and the majority of these suspects (both children and adults) were educated in both public schools and private schools.
I'm sorry, I could keep going on and on so I better stop here. I just needed to vent.
