The most empowering thing you can do, is to take your children out of this system. Protect them for at least the first 10 years...At least for 10 years.

Don't be afraid to educate them in your homes.

You can do it, and they'll do it themselves, and they will surprise you with how intelligent they are. And you'll see that light in their eyes, it won't go out after 2 or 3 years of public schooling; It'll still be there.

You'll see that child will still loves you. It isn't listening to the children at school telling them how much they hate their parents.

-Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
