Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with a dear friend mashaAllah. She drove all the way from the other side of London and made us lunch. I am very grateful to Allah (Swt) for the sincere sisters he has placed on my path in life. Alhamdulillah. She’s the type of person that really makes you think deeply about LOTS of things. She used to home ed her three boys and is considering home edding them again. After discussing home ed, methods of home ed, and the way some Muslim home edders tend to go towards a kind of ‘home ed extreme’ and lock their children up away from the world as if that will save them, she shared something with me which struck a chord with me.
“When home educating, our aim shouldn’t be protecting our children from the world, but rather it should be that we are the ones that introduces them to the world.”
Might not strike a chord with you, but it led me to really think about what this HE journey is all about…what are your thoughts?
