What are our schools teaching????

I have been helping my granddaughter with her GCSE revision.  Law was straight forward as it was just about learning facts about the law.  But some of the other subjects are just pure propaganda, social engineering and indoctrination.

I always thought science taught you things like how the heart worked.  The difference between arteries and veins.  What is chlorophyll, chemical reactions etc.  In short facts about how things work.  Not about whether culling badgers stops cattle from catching TB, or ‘pump head’ which may or may not be caused from being put on a heart lung machine, but the statistics seem to show nobody knows.

What is the point of discussing situations that the experts do not know the answers to, when the children don’t know in the first place what TB is or how the lungs work.

RE, which is only half  a GCSE, you might think should be about learning about the world’s religions.  No, it is about common sense and all answers must be given using common sense only and therefore they are not taught any real facts, but are asked to give their thoughts only.  As long as it is common sense of course.

Global warming is taught as fact, rather than the views are divided between equally qualified scientists and the science is changing on it all the time.

People complain about faith schools indoctrinating faith into the kids, but you send your children to a faith school so that they will be taught within that ethos.  It’s your choice.  State schools obviously are indoctrinating our kids with the secular ideals of the day.  They are socially engineering in the worst way regardless of the truth of what they are teaching.  Social ideas change with the wind and media propaganda.  I doubt most parents realise what they are being taught and would be concerned if they knew.

New age, meditation (in an unhealthy way) are just some of the things being done in schools regardless of the dangers or whether the parents approve.  Our schools are creating a society that may come back and bite us on the backside in years to come.  I’m quite glad that i won’t be around to see it but fear for my younger family.

We are what we think!

Belief System

If you accept a belief,

You reap a thought.

If you sow a thought,

You reap an attitude.

You sow an attitude,

You reap an action.

If you sow an action,

You reap a habit.

If you sow a habit,

You reap a character.

If you sow a character,

You reap a destiny.

I don’t know who wrote the above but it is so true.  You are what you think.  Whatever is at the front of your mind all the time becomes the way you behave.  If you tell yourself your a nasty  horrible person, then you will find yourself behaving that way. 

If you say, i can’t do that your won’t.  Tell yourself everything always goes wrong for you and it will.  You get the picture.  Think miserable thoughts.  You most certainly will be miserable.

The opposite works exactly the same as well.  Guess what the doers, the go-getters are thinking.  The happy people, the contented, the encouragers of this world. 

So we have it in our hands to choose how we think.  Sometimes hard I know, but you have to take every thought captive and dismiss the bad and choose to think good things.

Start telling yourself, you can, i will, i am.  Think how you can help others, rather than what others may have done to you.  When you feel down, put on some happy music and think of good things.  There is a lot to be said for counting your blessings.

It takes about 40 days to create a habit either good or bad, so start now to create some good habits in the way you think and see how much your life will change and your blood pressure go down.

Remember you are what you think.

Back to school

In 2 weeks G’daughter has her Law exam or at least part of it.  They seem to do their exams in dribs and drabs now.  She struggles with revision and says she cannot do it without me.  So we have already done about 8 hours with many more to come.  Law is her first exam, then comes Child development, Science, Graphics and quite a few more.

Law though i knew nothing about before i started.  At the beginning of the year we did about 18 hours for her mocks and if i remember rightly she got an A for that so we are hoping for an A* this time.

I now know far more about law than i ever figured I'd need, but if it is going to help i do it willingly.  She is on her own with German though, learning that on the quick to help is just beyond me.

You have to laugh though because one of her friends is coming round her house to revise with her because she is struggling with the revision too.  Soon i will have a little school lol.  They do seem to do the exams very different from when i did mine.  We did 2 years of study then an exam at the end.  They learn a bit, then an exam, then another bit, then another exam. 

If she gets good high grades then she can choose what she wants to do at college, low grades and she has to take what they will accept her for.

Well enough about that, what else is happening.  Well did i tell you about the revision ha, ha.

To be quite honest the days are just going by pretty much the same each day.  Get up, housework, eat, computer, bed.  Sounds boring but sometimes the predictability of each day can be a blessing, and of course i am never alone, there is always my God by my side to talk to and put a smile on my face as we sing and share the day together.

It's been a long while.

It has been a long while since i have written in here and i make no promises now that the next post will come any quicker.  I am not even going to bother explaining what i have been up to since i last posted, life has just gone on with it's ups and downs, but one thing i will say i have bought two new things.

And they are, a new computer and a kindle.  My old computer was full and i just fancied a kindle.  Well also all my book cases are full and the books were starting to make piles on the floor.  The kindle is brilliant and i have started reading far more again, and the old classics are free.  So i read for nothing Pride and Prejudice.  Missed it when i was young so thought this is the time to really see what Darcy had been up to, and i am looking forward to reading loads.

Easter weekend my and hubby was involved in a production of the Passion Play which was played on the green next to our local theatre.  We use there electricity, roof  for spotlights and sounds.  This is the 4th time we have put it on since 1995, we aim for every 5 years depending when Easter falls in the month.  It is a big production involving over 20 churches, over a hundred cast and we had around 7,000 people come and see it over the 3 days it was on.  We had a great time and the culmination of a lot of work starting last October.

What's next?  Well i don't really know.  That is the fun of just letting God lead and see where you go.  I seem to keep going from steep learning curve to steep learning curve and can only see the next step of the road.  That next step for me is starting training with the 'Healing Rooms', but when i have done that i am not sure what next.

Meanwhile life goes on, slightly slower as i get older in the amount i do but a lot faster in time or so it seems.  Which reminds me that's why i called this blog Stop The Clock in the first place.
