In my opinion, there are two areas that a Christian Mom like me may feel insecure about. Those are: 1) Working outside the home 2) Sending our kids to public school
Being a passionate Christian mom, I am surrounded by other Christian parents who have strong convictions about those two issues. Most of my friends are "Stay At Home Moms" and many of them homeschool their kids.
There were awkward moments at church when other parents would say something about how "they will never send their kids to public school" like the kids sent to public schools are doomed to destruction. It's awkward, very awkward for me to hear that and see the expression of disgust in their faces.
Well, I am here to say that I work outside of home and my kids go to public school. "Public School" works for us. Yes, I have to closely watch my kids so that they don't pick-up some bad habits (like swearing because there are a lot of kids who swears in the public school) and yes I have to watch closely what they are being taught (like evolution is not acceptable because we believe in creation); but overall, I think it's good that they are learning how to deal with these kind of situations early on, so that when they go to college, away from us, they would know how to handle these situation and stand up for what is right. They are being trained in a way.
I make it a point to be active in school, to be helpful and volunteer whenever I can. I know the administration and they know me well. My kids are learning and they are learning well. They are blessed with great teachers (a bonus is that both teachers are Christian too :) ). We get to meet other families and we get to share the love of Christ to others this way. Yes, public schools work for us at this time. Maybe someday we'll change, but for now, we think it's what's best for us.
