Before I explain the headline on this post let me clarify something for our progessive/liberal friends that visit ‘Giovanni’s World’…
I am a fan of Glenn Beck. I respect him. I admire him. I pray for him. Finally, I did not get the following story, or the conclusions, from Glenn.
With that out of the way… Colleges and Universities around the country are sending parents a message, loud and clear. They (places of higher learning) want parents to write the checks for their kids, buy what’s needed for the dorm rooms, rent the U-Haul to get their childs belongings to the school. They even expect the parents to help lug all the heavy boxes of junk from the U-Hauls up to the students dorm room. Then they want the parents to leave the property.
Read this short article from the NYT’s where they use silly excuses and cute reasons to demand parents they ‘Go The Hell Home’. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/23/education/23college.html
Don’t let any of it fool you, there is one reason the parents are being told to go home… so the liberal/progressive/Marxist/anti-American brainwashing can begin! Only one other organization on earth would object to parents hanging around to make sure their kids are going to be ok… that would be The Boot Camps of the United States Military, which is very understandable.
Here’s my suggestion to all parents… First check into the type of College/University that your child wants to attend. Find out if the school has a habit of supporting all things progressive. Second, don’t ever let a school get between you and your child. Thirdly, love your children and teach them that family is always more important than any school or liberal organization. Finally, teach them that Christianity is a ‘good’ thing and they should never be ashamed of being a Christian.
