First World Problems: The INSANITY of 21st Century Parenting

Whatever happened to raising your own kids?

You know, when it comes to 21st century parenting, let’s admit that we have an epidemic of people who simply aren’t interested in being a part of their kids’ lives.

Am I talking about deadbeat dads? Nope.

Absent mothers? Uh-uh.

Unfortunately, I’m referring to something that is often considered mainstream and is all too often heralded by the mainstream media.

Any guesses? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!

Homeschooling and education are my passion. It is my fervent hope to one day devote more time to creating content for you. If you’d like to support this ministry, consider supporting me on Patreon

Thank you so much. I appreciate each and every one of you!

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

  1. Shelly, you are my hero! Once I lived next door to a lovely woman who was a nurse. She and her husband had two beautiful daughters. I want to say they were around 4 and 5 at the time. On many of the days the mother had off from her busy full-time day, she still sent her daughters to their daycare so that she could clean her house. That just made me sad! I worked in a daycare center once. It was a nice place with caring “teachers” as we called ourselves. But I felt so sorry for those precious children because they spent more time at the daycare than with their families. And there was no way we “teachers” could give each of them the attention they deserved and needed.

  2. Bravo!! I’ll say it again…Bravo!!! You are talking about something that I am sooo passionate about! I agree COMPLETELY with you! I chose not to send my kids to preschool and many people were very shocked that I would make that decision. When my middle son began struggling in kindergarten, my mother-in-law claimed it was because he didn’t go to preschool. (Turns out, he’s severely dyslexic, among other things.) Although my two older kids spent a couple of years in public school, I ended up homeschooling. My oldest has now graduated and my younger two are both in high school. Home is where they belong!!

  3. Preach it, Mama! I think it’s so sad when I hear mom’s saying they can’t wait for their kids to start preschool. I can’t relate. I have talked to mom’s though, who aren’t looking forward to it but have become convinced that their children are better off with these “experts”. They just don’t understand the value of kids spending all day with the people who love them most. That bond with parents is soooo important, especially when they get older and have to decide who to listen to.
