I’ve been told that I should stop talking about the schools since my kids are homeschooled and that I should “stay in [my] lane.” Well, guess what? Considering that the school system is socially engineering our future generation, it is 100% still my business, and I will not stop talking about it. As long as I have a voice to speak, I will use it.
When it comes to the reopening schools debate, one of the most popular arguments we’ve been hearing recently is regarding the mental health of the students. As usual, I’m going to share my (likely unpopular) views on the subject because, hey, that’s what I do. 😉
I’ve been reading Little House in the Big Woods to my kids as our read-aloud, and, besides being a fun way to learn American history, it’s been eye opening about today’s “woke” worldviews, to say the least.
Here’s what Caroline Ingalls taught me about feminism.
It’s very troubling to me to see so many people falling into the vicious cycle that school itself has created. Think very hard about this. If you are having a hard time #parenting your children while they’re at home, why would you continue to send them to the institution that was the biggest catalyst for this problem to begin with?
I don’t think I’ve ever addressed marriage here on my channel before, but it’s something that we need to pay more attention to. In this day and age, marriage no longer carries the honor and commitment that it once did for many people. Far too many people believe that marriage is going to be much easier than it actually is. You have to be willing to make it work, but it is so worth it.
Here’s what I’ve learned in my 23 years of marriage (which was blessed with 11 kids!)
I watched a movie over Christmas break in which a dad said that sometimes he felt more like a camp counselor than a parent, and that really struck me. I’ve often thought about how children can be inundated with activities to the point that they have no free time, but I never actually thought about why so many parents do it. I finally figured it out – guilt.
I’m here to tell you today that it doesn’t have to be that way.
Today’s video is just a fun little interview I had with my four youngest children about #homeschooling. If you have any questions you’d like me to ask them in a more detailed future interview, you can leave a comment here!
