I do not believe this to be so. One of my favorite books is Let Me Be A Woman by Elizabeth Elliot. In this book, she writes about why it is important to have educated women, even if they get married and have a family. The reason women should be educated is to
Draw out (the root meaning of the word educate) the gifts that God has given, whatever they may be. Surely I did not send you [Valerie] to college on the assumption that you should not marry. A Christian liberal education will make you a better wife and mother, I'm convinced, if that is God's will for you. If You were called to be a tax collector or philosopher I should likewise want you to have that kind of education.When the time comes for my daughter to finish high school, I will not discourage her from attending college, but on the flip side, I will not say to her, "You MUST got to college and get your degree before getting married and starting a family." It's a fine line and I need to be careful. I need to be educating her throughout her preschool and school years. We do this very informally right now. I read out loud to her to help her pick up words and hear new vocabulary. Drew talks to her in Spanish. We sing and talk with Charis. She is allowed to explore her environment as much as possible, without putting her in harms way.
What type of things have you done to help educate your child/children?
Do you send them to private or public school? Do you home school them?
