Now down to the question.
DS bought home a note from school today saying he has been selected to do a "8 secrets of happiness" course through pastoral care.
The 8 secrets are
1. Count your blessings
2. Practise random acts of Kindness
3. Savour life's joy
4. Thank a mentor
5. Learn to forgive
6. Invest time and energy in family and friend
7. Take care of your body
8 Develop strategies to cope with stress and hardship.
These steps will be shown through drama, art and craft, poetry, journaling and games. I don't believe in God religion annoys the crap out of me(personal reasons).
The thing is that DS is a literal child and will take these things as the truth not as subjective things. He however wants to do it(which is his choice) but I would rather he not learn about God and religion through the school. I am also very annoyed that he was "selected" so he thinks this is a special privilege that he gets to do this. The class runs for 55 minutes once a week. Which means he will miss out on class time. I am also rather annoyed that they sent us this considering in the year and a half we have been at this school my children have NEVER attended RE classes.
Would you let him do this?
