Parents: Have You Lost Your Parental Rights At Your Child’s School? Are You Sure?

Picture this.

You are a divorced parent with a 15-year old son. He wants to live with his father to try a better school. You let him.

Next thing you know, your 15-year old son wants to live at a friend’s house for a while and his father allows him to do this. You have no idea the amount of time spent at this “friend’s” house.

A few months go by and you find, unbeknownst to you, that your son is living at this “friend’s” house, and with help from this family and some homosexual “advocacy groups”, your son has filed for “emancipation” without your knowledge. Next, they tell your son’s school that you knew about it and relinquished your parental rights. Your son, with the help from this “LGBT advocacy group”, filed a claim with false information and never alerted YOU as the mother.

1.I-dosing (taken from an article by great schools)

In this age of technology, it’s not surprising that entrepreneurs are trying to create a way to get high online. The result is a phenomenon called “I-dosing,” which attempts to alter consciousness via sound. “The Internet craze has teens plugging in their headphones to listen to downloadable MP3s that are said to have effects akin to getting high on actual drugs. There are various tracks designed to elicit the same “high” as specific drugs. Anywhere from five to 30 minutes long, the tracks consist of binaural beats, in which the tone of one frequency is played into the right ear and a slightly different frequency is played in the left ear.” Many teens put a hood over their eyes and kick up the digital sound waves and use these “digital drugs” to change the make-up of their brain to try and reach a high similar to taking narcotics. While research is still being done on its lasting effects on the brain, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs has found it to be enough of a concern that it has issued a warning to children not to do it.
