Are you worried when you send your kids off to school and into the cruel world? Do you feel helpless to shield them from false beliefs, misinformation, and propaganda? Do you cringe at the thought that your child could be indoctrinated with divisive ideologies? Is it difficult to find rational truth? If so, this eBook was written for parents like you!
It offers a two-week plan that enables Christian parents and others with conservative values to teach their young school-age children a few basic Bible truths at home at the children's level of understanding. By knowing God's unchanging truth, the average young schoolchild can learn to recognize untruths and resist deception. This plan was created by an experienced elementary school teacher, and it is exceptional in two ways. First, instead of presenting familiar Bible stories, the book features original modern-day parables to which kids can easily relate. Second, there is a designed course that is short, simple, and adaptable to any lifestyle. There are just fourteen one-page stories to read aloud—one story for each sitting. Immediately following each story is a "Lesson Plan and Follow-up Activities" page with suggestions for fun projects that parent, and children can enjoy if they wish and whenever they wish.
About the author
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania during the Great Depression, Ruth was a child with normal hearing, but she was born to Deaf parents. Her first task was to learn her parents' silent signed language. At that time, there were no trained sign language interpreters, so, by the age of five, Ruth was interpreting for her parents and for all their Deaf friends, as well. She became their connection with the Hearing World, dedicating her activities to educating the hearing population about the nature of deafness and teaching sign language classes to encourage communication with the Deaf. She asserts that the teaching ability she acquired in that early role equipped her for her future role as a professional teacher. After marrying and raising two children, Ruth taught in the elementary school grades of suburban Chicago public schools for twenty-four years. During those years, she taught over two-thousand elementary school children, counseled their parents, trained student teachers, designed curriculums, and was nominated for "National Teacher of the Year" by her school's Parent-Teacher Association. A widow since 2019, Ruth now lives in Asheville, North Carolina.
