How Much Are You Renting Out Your Kids For?Submitted by LapHog on Wed, 12/04/2013 - 23:22
I 'unschool' (a particular philosophy of, and approach to, homeschooling) my kids.
Those who live inside the conventional box don't understand why I gave up my fairly cushy investment career to do so. One way I explain it is this:
I made X dollars per year, which, to be sure, certainly provided for some nice material things. In order to make X dollars per year, however, I had to send my kids to school to be, in a real sense, raised by strangers. The way I see it, I was renting out my kids for X dollars per year.
My kids are worth far more to me than X dollars.
How much are you renting your kids out for?
