Is it really August already? In just a few weeks time, children and parents all over the country will be gearing up for back-to-school time.
Unfortunately, the new school year will be starting on the heels of some very troubling events – two mass shootings, to be precise. Considering that schools have been targets of these heinous crimes in the past, it’s only natural that parents are concerned with how to protect their children, hence the topic of this post.
I’m actually going to be re-visiting a topic I covered last year – bulletproof backpacks.
(For commentary and a bit of ranting on an article covering this subject, watch the video. Ranting is my specialty. 😉)

A homeschool mom’s reflections on her children’s time in public school
If you live in the northern hemisphere, chances are that summer break is here! As always, I’m seeing so many different reactions from parents about this time of year. Some are relieved and happy to have their kids home for a couple months. Some are feeling overwhelmed and are scrambling to figure out how to keep their kids occupied for the next 12 weeks. And still others are, unfortunately, trying to overcome the obstacles that have been thrown before them (NY and CA, I’m looking at you) and are trying to figure out what will become of their children’s education once summer is over.

Over the past few years of me being a homeschool blogger, I’ve learned one very obvious thing:
My opinion on the necessity of college definitely falls into this category. Here’s why. Continue reading “Why I Will Never Force College on My Kids”
“He who controls the schools, controls the world.”

Today I’m going to be upfront about something a lot of my fellow believers don’t want to hear:

We’re living in a world today of mass censorship. Whether it’s blocking dissenting opinions on mainstream social media platforms, removing information that goes against the status quo from websites like Amazon and Etsy, or discriminating against “conspiracy theory” videos on YouTube, one thing is clear:
We, the people, are no longer trusted to do our own research or form our own opinions on anything of importance.

You are your child’s first teacher.
How many times have you heard that adage? The beautiful thing about it is that it’s true, whether you homeschool your children or not.
Unfortunately, I believe this message has been lost in the shuffle of schooling, experts, and degrees. It’s something that, sadly, isn’t reflected on much anymore. Continue reading “A New Perspective on Homeschooling”
You know what I love about the New Year? Countdowns. How exciting is it to reflect back on some of the most “happening” things of the previous year?
Last week, I shared my 10 most popular blog posts from 2018. This week I’m going to do something I’ve never done before – share my most popular YouTube videos from 2018. I’m actually really excited because, as I write this, I still don’t know what they are!
That’s right. It’s all a surprise to me, too! So let’s get started! Continue reading “My 10 Most Popular Homeschool and Education Videos from 2018”
Yikes! Another year has come and gone. Am I the only one who noticed that it was gone in a flash?! This past year has been a bit of a whirlwind for me, as I’ve been spending a bit less time here on my blog and a bit more on my YouTube channel.
As always, it seems that my more controversial posts are those that have garnered the most attention. Without further ado, here are… Continue reading “My Most Popular Homeschooling and Education Posts from 2018!”
As many of you are aware, one of the issues I am most vocal about is my criticism of the public education system. This isn’t something I do because I’m trying to make people mad. Inevitably, however, I do realize that my posts and videos are likely to ruffle a few feathers.
I’m okay with that.
Truth be told, I am far more concerned about getting the word out about the true purpose and history of the public school system. It is my firm belief that if people were aware of these things, at least some of them would think twice about exposing their kids to this toxic environment. (Sorry, but I’m not pulling any punches.)

Did you ever notice how everyone today seems to be singing the praises of multitasking? Articles, blogs, and books are completely dedicated to the “art” of doing several things at once as if it were actually a good thing.
I beg to differ.
Gone are the days of considering multitasking to be something as simple as answering the phone or changing the baby’s diaper while making dinner. If only that were the case. Continue reading “Traditional Schooling Is Nothing More Than “Educational” Multitasking”
