Traveling in the van recently, the topic turned to Ouija Boards came up. I have no idea how or why. Apollo sat in his car seat keenly listening, as he always does. He doesn’t miss much.
“You shouldn’t play with those, ever. The Bible says we should avoid things like that.” I said to the van full of kids in general.
There was brief pause and then Apollo said, “Well that’s scary!”
“Why is it scary?” I asked.
“Because we use those at school.”
Thankfully, I have over fifteen years of homeschooling under my belt. And I’m used to parenting where nothing is as it seems.
“Do you mean you use GeoBoards at school?”
“Yes, we use them a lot.”
Don’t worry, I assured him that GeoBoards are just fine. We own several ourselves. In fact, I wrote a post about teaching geometry to preschoolers using those very GeoBoards. No witchcraft involved.
