Scary and Crazy! Read to find out why...

From Preschool games to SAT writing, kids grow up so fast!  I still remember being in school myself, and now I am all grown up with not just one, but two children school age. My daughter is 10 years and my son 5 years. Recently, I have been reminded how thankful I am for the choices I have made as far as their education. I know some people think that to home-school only effects education, but they would be wrong, it can effect many other things. Like keeping our children a little safer IMO.

A few weeks ago my daughter was in the truck telling me about how some of her public school team mates (she plays softball) were talking about a boy, their classmate, that had gotten in trouble for bringing Cocaine, Yes! I said Cocaine!!!! to school. These are 10 year old children. My husband and I just looked at each other and I know we were thinking the same thing. How thankful we both were that our children was not be exposed to such dangers.

As scary as that is, I have an even scarier problem that is happening to our kids and making the idea of public school seem even more dangerous. Last week a friend of my mom's had to put her daughter in jail for battery. She said her daughter just litterly lost it! When they searched her room they found a knife and powder. They assumed it was Cocaine as well, but after the police came, they found out it was bath salts. Apparently the new trend to get high is to snort smashed up bath salts! Her daughter was just 15 years old.

I am of course praying for these family's, but I am so thankful to not have to worry that my children are going to have to deal with such dangerous nonsense. Growing up, I of course  had my share of peer pressure situations, but nothing like this.

Anyways, I just wanted to share this with all of you. If you have bath salts, you may want to check to see if they are the ones you can snort, and make sure you children know how dangerous this new trend to get high really is.

From Cocaine to snorting bath salts, Let's hope are kids will be able to grow up :(

I hadn't heard about the bath salts thing. Whoa. I'm SO happy that my boys haven't had to deal with those kinds of pressures. I feel so bad for kids today!!
