Also imagine if you will, another scenario: another mother of a six year old child. This mother was homeschooled.

Just imagine for a moment...
Just imagine for a moment a mother of a six year old child. Now, this mother has never been kicked in the head, however, all her friends are kicking their children in the head, and from what she has seen, children who are kicked in the head are very obedient and have lots of time for helping around the house. If she kicks her child in the head she will be able to make sure she is the only person influencing him and can pass her values on to him. It's a kick in the head - other people might judge but who are they to decide what is best for the child? She is pretty sure it will all work out, and she thinks this is what god wants her to do. Other people try to interfere with her process with dire warning but they must not have been kicked in the head properly, or they must be bitter and will eventually learn that their parents were right to kick them in the head: parents always have their children's best interests in mind. She has read some books about kicking children in the head from people who seem very experienced in the field, and has purchased several manuals on the topic, so she is fully equipped. After all, she wouldn't want to create a less than perfect situation for her child! She is the mother! There is a lot of work ahead of this loving mother. She may need to defend her values from naysayers. She will need to maintain perfection so that others do not think she is making mistakes. She is doing the right thing for her child. Now imagine this mother with a six year old child: she has never been homeschooled...
