Quote# 31760

You must create a social circle for your children. It may be limited to just one or two other families who share your world-view, for you can be sure that when a handful of teenagers get together, at least one of them is going to introduce corruption to the others. We never allowed our children to stay overnight with other kids. When they wanted to go down to the local church on Saturday night to skate, Mike went with them. We never allowed them to go to parties unless one of us was there. We created our own fun that was far more exciting than the church gatherings. They never felt they were missing anything

And what if you yourself has more than one teenager? Do you keep them all separated?

Why do I get the feeling their "social circle" is the family from "Deliverance"?

It doesn't say much for your beliefs if you have to isolate your kids from the world. Afraid they can't think for themselves?

More likely, you're afraid they *can* think for themselves.

Only because they were so brainwashed by you they didn't know any better.

ahhhhh the PERL family way of doing it. Wife as housemat, kids with the social skills of oysters, "fun" with some strange new meaning.

I wonder how the "kids" are doing in the real world; or maybe the Perls have created their own, special, place.

//They never felt they were missing anything//

And I'm sure that when/if they go off to University they're TOTALLY not gonna go overboard like EVERY KID I KNOW FROM AN OVERBEARING RELIGIOUS HOME.

When/if they come back, they'll KNOW what they missed.
