Ok, I am back in my struggle….with the education system, and how it doesn’t involve food.
What are we without good food?
I want them to cook, grow vegetables….look after the hens. sit at a table and converse…know what food is good for maintaining their bodies, but still delicious. For me, it is just as important for them to be able to care for themselves, and have a zest for life. For me this comes before RE ( don’t get me started) and Henry VIII. I want my children to be full of fun…everyday be involved in exercise, food, reading for the joy of it, art, music…
Apparently I expect too much…
I have removed my children from school dinners, after all their complaints about how the food is rubbish and often under cooked. I originally sent them for dinners in the hope they would eat well and enjoy the social side, plus try new foods. Like so many things, it seems it is more important to digest facts than nourishment. Am I wrong?
I am 40, and have always worked. But I never followed my passions. (Until now.) Nor do I remember much from my education. I am also starting to see the children emerge like butterflies…Only to be trapped in the net of state education.
What do I do…relax, home educate and teach them the beauty of life…..or go with convention, watching there hopes dashed and wondering how they will survive as adults??
Do I expect too much???
I shall go make a cake for us to enjoy after school….and I will see what they think.
love and hugs
