This mother wanted advice from people online about if she was doing the right thing by pulling her child out of a religious private school. Her husband was furious!
A Happy Family
The couple – a 33-year-old man and his 28-year-old wife – are parents to a six-year-old daughter. They have been married for six years, and dated for a year before tying the knot.
He Came From a Religious Background
The husband grew up in a religious Pentecostal family, but he is not a fanatic.
He often shares stories about strange things he has seen at tent revivals, such as people claiming to heal others from demons and speaking in tongues.
He Liked Her Approach to Life
He has assured his wife that he is not as religious as his family, which puts her at ease, as she comes from a more relaxed family when it comes to religion.
In fact, he found her secular and open-minded approach to life refreshing.
His Parents Want Her to Convert
The wife has had a difficult time with her husband’s family, particularly his parents, who are religious and have tried to convert her to their Pentecostal church.
They Want to Control the Daughter’s Education
She has tried to tolerate their attempts to control her daughter’s upbringing, but drew the line when they insisted on homeschooling her.
She shut down the idea immediately, and her husband came up with a compromise: they would enroll their daughter in a Pentecostal private school to keep peace with his family.
She Agreed, and They Moved On
The wife agreed, but only after meeting with the school’s teachers and faculty to ensure they were open-minded and not too indoctrinating.
Becoming Concerned Over the School Curriculum
After two years at the school, the wife has become increasingly concerned about her daughter’s exposure to religious dogma and indoctrination.
She has had many conversations with her husband about her concerns, but he has been deflecting and avoiding the topic.
Her Daughter’s Troubling Behavior
Recently, the wife witnessed her daughter waving her arm slowly in the air, head bowed to the floor, moving to music while watching TV, which she found troubling.
She’s Not Waiting Any Longer
Finally, she decided to take action and withdrew her daughter from the school without telling her husband.
The Husband’s Reaction
When he found out, he was furious with her and yelled at her, insisting that public schools can be a nightmare, and that one of the teachers at the private school is friends with his mother and will tell her everything.
He Left Immediately
He left to spend Easter with his parents, leaving his wife and daughter alone.
She Doesn’t Know What to Do
The wife is now feeling lost and uncertain about how to proceed with her husband.
She knows that she wants to protect her daughter from religious indoctrination at all costs, but she is uncertain about how to move forward in her relationship with her husband.
She’s Looking for Advice
This situation has been one of the only times she has stood her ground, and everything feels like it’s crumbling around her. She seeks advice on how to proceed with her husband and salvage their relationship.
He Cares More About His Mother Than His Wife
