What is Your Mission?Ultimately, Protecting Young Hearts aims to foster childrens' moral, psychological and social formation - to develop informed, virtuous citizens and critical thinkers able to lead fulfilling lives and contribute to society.
We accomplish this by fostering a family-led public education system that
Why Do You Personally Care?Education is a particularly formative part of children’s lives, meant to help them become informed, productive and virtuous citizens -- so they may live a good and fulfilling life. Education is meant to nurture a sense of wonder, too, enabling them to better understand and appreciate the truth of God’s creation and its myriad dimensions.
These days, however, public education seems oriented toward a different end, one that does not foster critical thinking but aims to indoctrinate children into misguided secular ideologies and replace, with ambiguity and indifference, traditional -- and true -- moral principles that promote human flourishing.
Moreover, public schools are undermining and supplanting the roles of parents, who should have the primary role in their edification.
While some Christian parents are perhaps unaware of the extent to which their children are being misled in public schools, others are concerned but feel limited in terms of how to intervene and effect change.
Given the critical role education plays in children’s development, and given that the public school system in this country is undermining the beliefs and values Christian parents seek to instill in their children, we believe that we must mount a collective effort to protect the innocence and virtue of future generations.
As parents, we've personally experienced the harm the public education system can sow in forming children. For example, consider a recent holiday article distributed to students that stated, "Friends are like families, and they may be better than the real ones . . . Researchers have studied this. They found that personal connections may be better for one's health and well-being than family relationships." Such statements undermining family bonds are common.
Mobilizing Parents to Speak UpPromote school change. Hold schools accountable. Protect your child with your voice.
Children learn how to flourish and lead fulfilling lives from the people who love them most - from their parents.
" Growing up, I trusted schools to respect parent's rights and honor the family's role. Now, more and more, teachers seem to undermine the family, and impose their personal and political agenda on my children."
"My daughter's Christian culture, beliefs and way of life were consistently under attack. Protecting Young Hearts gave me a voice in education. The teacher and principal responded quickly once I made my view public."
