For a while now, dh and I have been deciding between Catholic private and public schools for our kids... out of nowhere, my SIL rings me up to say"""my dh and I have been discussing this ...""... and proceeded to say that Catholic Schooling is nothing but brainwashing. (dh is a Catholic and went to Catholic school.. where as I am not catholic.. I went to a public school). (mind u, her kids go to a catholic school, and what's more, she's happy with it!!). so i don't know what her point is exactly, but she went on to say that seeing as I am not Catholic myself, it's not fair on my family to send the kids to a Catholic school. Then when I told my MIL this conversation - she got really angry and said "'well funny she said that, because she was telling me, that if you don't send your kids to a private school, they will be of no class."". How annoying. Firstly, nobody asked SIL her or her dh opinion.. secondly, my family don't care where we send the kids to school... and lastly, (dh can't really say much about the ''brainwashing"" comment as he didn't really pay much attention at school. lol. he said he can't reacall any brainwashing.. ) so question is :; is there THAT MUCH religious activities going on at Catholic school??
I am aware they will be doing mass etc, & you are to be baptised and have communion and confirmation etc... but is it to the point what she says it is?? We aren't super religious, yet are looking for what is the best school facilities, subjects & environment wise for our kids..
