Something I have learned in my short 30 years on this earth, is that the children are our future. With Common Core running rampid and more kids being inundated with the liberal agenda, I am glad to be a part of something to change that. There is a troop for Boys and Girls that helps to teach them correctly. For boys instead of Boy Scouts consider Trail Life USA. What are they? Great question. They are the Faith based alternative to the Boy Scouts. Who are they? Trail Life USA is a Christian adventure, character, and leadership program for young men. The K-12 program centers on outdoor experiences that build a young man’s skills and allow him to grow on a personal level and as a role model and leader for his peers. Living the Trail Life is a journey established on timeless values derived from the Bible.
What is the Girl Scout Alternative, you ask? American Heritage Girls! Who are they, you ask? American Heritage Girls is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. The organization offers badge programs, service projects, girl leadership opportunities, and outdoor experiences to its members. It serves as a catalyst for building young women of integrity and faith. It also broadens girls social development through extra-curricular activities. This program of character building has successfully served thousands of girls since its inception and will continue to do so long into the 21st century.
I was so excited to find out about AHG. I started a troop here in Butte, MT. Let me tell you it is not easy. This town is inundated with people who think they are Liberal and in reality are actually more independent/conservative. They have a HUGE Girl Scout following. Luckily, there are those who are totally over the GSUSA program. AHG is a prolife group and does not in any way support Planned Parent hood, like GSUSA. They have amazing program frontiers and they teach actual history. Each level is based off of a historical woman! This program is amazing and I have seen the amazing growth in the few girls that have managed to stay with it.
It is imperative as adults that we role model to our children properly. You need to be their parent first! Kids need discipline and structure. They need to know that they are unique and made in God's image. They need to know that what they are learning in school is wrong. Take them out of public school and put them in charter schools. They are scholarships available for those who can't afford it. The kids are worth it! Kids need supervision and age appropriate activities. So many kids here in Butte wander around town by themselves and the parents don't have any supervision or rules. Kids say and do mean things and the way they dress??? If that was my daughter, she would not be leaving the house dressed like that!
The societal pressures and just pure lack of judgment seriously should scare the crap out of everyone, or you are not paying attention. I have yet to have kids, and when I do they will probably respect me more than anything because I will be tough but firm. My kids will not have cellphones until they are 16. They will not be going off and doing there own thing. I will meet all their friends and the parents. My kids will have a private education, even if that means I have to work 2 jobs. I had a crappy upbringing and thank God I learned from it.
Kids are impressionable and if we don't take a stand against Big Government and the Liberal Agenda, then our kids and our Country will suffer because of it. Do not be the bystander who does nothing. I am doing what I can do. What are you doing? Time to re-evaluate and put your time where it matters, re-educating your children, teaching them the correct history, and showing them true historical documents. Time to be a true role model and leader, someone your kids can look up to, an inspiration. The only way to get away from the problem is to become part of the solution. There is no middle ground. It is do or die. In the word of Patrick Henry, "Give me Liberty or give me death!"
