Subject: NO on HB 96

Dear Legislator:

Please vote NO on HB 96.  Families need all these early years to spend their precious time with their children and pass of the things that are of value to them.  Education system does not allow the teachers to teach morals and values.  Children need these years at home.

Stop messing with moms and their babies and the precious few years they have to bond with their little children.  No small child should be spending more time away from their homes and in longer school days, much less taking a little 3 year old out of the home and into an institutionalized government day care center.

It is disgusting to listen to your debates and arguments about this funding and that cost, how much we might save and spend.  At what cost?

Since you, Utah Legislator, are primarily of the male gender, please stop thinking as men for a few brief moments.  (If that’s possible.)  Start thinking as a mom, for a change.  Think with your heart instead of with your pocket book.

Do you have any idea what the cost is for the anxiety that separating a little toddler  (only 3 years old!)  from a mom causes?  I’m not talking about a financial cost.  I’m talking about an emotional cost.

Pre-K Sex Ed:  European Style

I’ve received a report from a good friend who recently returned from a European country where pre-K is mandatory now.  It all started as voluntary, by the way.  That’s how it works.  She was there teaching seminars to parents, and she learned that the pre-K classes were teaching those toddlers about sex: gay sex, hetero sex, and narcissistic sex (how to get pleasure from touching themselves).

They now use unisex bathrooms with no stalls.  Girls and boys together using the toilet.  Urinals on one side, toilets on the other.

The parents complained to the school that they wanted to teach their children modesty and values.  They thought the sex ed topics were inappropriate.  The school administrators told the parents that teaching modesty and values was inappropriate.  Yes, you read that correctly.

Did you get that?  THE PARENTS WERE INAPPROPRIATE!  Teaching a 3 year old how to masturbate was appropriate.

If you think this is very far-fetched, not long ago, a top university official told me that the college accreditation committee was on campus at Brigham Young University and informed the school that its Honor Code – based on a standard of morality – was immoral because it infringed on the freedom of students to co-habit, to have premarital and homosexual sex.

Do you see a connection here?

Parental Alienation

Back to pre-school:

I know a mom who was working part-time and hired a nanny to watch her little one.  Eventually, the toddler bonded with the nanny and not the mom.  In this European country, according to the report I received, parents are now noticing that starting school at such an early age is alienating the toddler from the parent who, up until that time, had been the trusted and primary source of their information and values training.  At age three, the teacher becomes the expert, not the mom.

Think about it:  As my friend explained, any teacher that would teach something so intimate and personal as sex and how to self-stimulate to a three year old is not only alienating that child from the parent, that teacher is also guilty of child abuse and sexual exploitation.

Knowing the strong agenda of this transformation of our schools into a top-down federally-driven system, with the ever-indulgent secularization and sexualization of young children who are spending more time in a school classroom instead of with their parents at home, can you, dear Legislator, really truly promise that this expansion of the role of the state as parent, and these heinous crimes will never happen in Utah?  I mean really promise?

I think not.

Still doubting my own skepticism?  Consider this:  Who would have thought, even two years ago, that Utah would be the first state to fall victim to a federal judge who would strike down a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, unilaterally legalizing gay marriage, and that the federal government under US Attorney General Eric Holder would de facto create domestic partnerships, overriding our state Constitutional law?

Gentlemen (and a few ladies who are mostly socialist Democrats) of the legislature, if you are even remotely thinking about voting in favor of the early-pre K bill – HB 69, because all you are thinking about is “cost savings,” I have two final questions to ask of you:

1. Can you guarantee, by opening the door to Pre-K, that down the line you will not also be opening the door to pre-K sex ed European style?  As we know, as Europe goes, so goes the U.S.

2. What on earth are you thinking?

So, in a few years, if this bill passes now in 2014, and when I am proven correct with my assessment here, I think it appropriate that the moms, whose children you have alienated, not just morally, but with that special mother-child bond … unite!

Sponsoring HB 96 is opening up this inevitable door through which no one really wants to look or even imagine in pristine, conservative, religious Utah.

But by then, I’m sure that we too will be told that what we once thought of as inappropriate is now the norm.

Thank you,
Pam Lundberg
