Outsourcing Parenthood

One of my recent commenters, Spunky, directed me to one of her posts that addressed the same topic I addressed in my previous post. It is definitely worth your time and attention. The essay addresses a common problem among parents, not one that only affects homeschoolers, but all parents no matter your schooling choice. Here is an excerpt to whet your appetite and the basic premise of the essay:
We are outsourcing parenthood. Parents are knowingly giving the job of raising their children over to another. No parent would readily admit this of course. But the increased reliance on day care, before school, and after school programs demonstrates something else.
After reading Outsourcing Parenthood, make sure you drop Spunky an encouraging note.
