Our system of government gives individual citizens both rights and responsibilities. The Declaration of Independence says that God gives us our rights and that government protects those rights. But rights come with responsibilities. Citizens have the responsibility to pay their taxes, to obey the law, to respect their leaders, to help in times of emergency, and so forth. If we do not bear our responsibilities, we might well lose the rights that God has given us.
We can do better than that. Homeschooling gives your children opportunities to see government in action. You can take field trips to visit government offices and to see sessions of the state legislature. You can read the Constitution and discuss it as a family, study leaders from history, and learn how the branches of government work together. Your children can write letters to elected officials and listen to godly adults have real conversations about political issues and candidates running for office.
