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:
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”
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!
Learning the history of public education will change the way you homeschool.
In this day and age, coming across homeschooling advice is as easy as the press of a button.
While tons of useful guidance of all kinds is available, there’s one thing I haven’t seen mentioned thus far. I’m going to tackle it today because I believe it can be vital to the well-being of any homeschool, and it’s something that I don’t think a lot of people give much thought to.
As a homeschool mom, I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about school – public school, to be exact.
No, I haven’t been thinking of sending my kids back – perish the thought! What I have been thinking about is what life today would be like if the public education system never existed.
To be sure, proponents of government schooling would claim that society wouldn’t be where it is today without it, and I’d have to agree with them.
But that isn’t a good thing. Continue reading “What If Public Education Never Existed?”
(The Case for Homeschooling High School)
As someone in the homeschooling community who is very vocal in my criticism of the public education system, there are pretty many comments I hear time and again.
One of these comments is the notion that parents may, indeed, be capable of homeschooling elementary age children, but they just couldn’t possibly be equipped to homeschool high school.
