and they're also talking about little kids

that are talking about theywanna do things with them

that are very inappropriate.

that it hadn't been in years past,

even to people who may notbe able to do it themselves.

So for example, retiredgrandparents can homeschool

your children, there area lot of online options.

and that they are safe in my care.

My school is always armed (laughing)

and I do appreciate that,I'm thankful that I'm able

to have a good eye on them,

and that it's not justabout their physical safety

but their spiritual safety.

I'm able to guard what Igoing inside their minds

and inside their hearts.
