What your children learn in school can changed at home. Sadly, most public schools have a liberal agenda. You should have seen the look at my 9 year old son's teacher's face when I told her that he has been taught to visciously attack anyone who puts their hands on him. She was so taken back by it her mouth was hanging open. I followed it with, "Well, a bully is only a bully until his nose is broken!" The same can be said abou a lot of things. I can tell you this, my son isnt bullied. Not many 9 year olds can throw an effective jab-cross-hook, or defend one for that matter. Any time he starts the liberal spew that he is taught at school I correct him and tell him no, that is ONE SIDE of things. You need to look at both sides and make an educated decision.
As far as food goes, my kids pack their lunch. What they eat is not as important as how active they are and they all have a pretty strict workout routine that they stick to. Cant go wrong as a kid if your hobbies are hunting, fishing, sports, and working out.
