I just finished a great discussion with Brontë and boys about prostitution. In school we were looking at gender roles in ancient Sumeria and discussing the impact of the Fall on women and children (see Genesis 3). As to why I’m teaching this material in our little homeschool, I’ll have to leave for another post. But suffice it to say you can’t have a complete discussion of history, especially Mesopotamian mythology, without talking about the dark side. Have you ever read through the Torah (first five books of the Bible) with your kids? Yeah, let’s put it this way…sex comes up a lot, and it is often not pleasant.
