Deborah Drapper

Today we came across this interesting site, The Rebelution, and the story of Deborah Drapper.

The two of us have also watched a couple of videos of the BBC documentary on her. The first of six parts is here.

We have then had a number of interesting discussions! We plan to watch the rest of the videos tomorrow.

Juliana, you may find this way of telling the Easter story interesting.

Thanks for the Easter link! We'll have to try that out. I think Safina would enjoy it.

I watched the 10 minute video. It would have been fun to be a part of your discussion on this.

I was not home schooled. I have considered it and really thought about my motivations for even considering it. And, a big motivation for it is a fear that Safina will be mistreated. But, fear should not be my motivation for doing or not doing something!

I kept thinking, however, as Deborah was talking about her life about all of the things she was 'being deprived' of. And, I found her father's comment to be very interesting. That he's grateful his children are missing out on being bullied, peer pressure and a lot of the negative aspects of school outside of the home.

Very interesting and challenging to think about!

Have fun discussing...
