  • [ – ] Sigrdrifa reply I'm an only child who grew up eating dinner either with only one parent, or in my room. You really miss out on a lot living like that. I always loved sharing ideas and learning new things about history and politics from a very young age, but very rarely got that opportunity. If I'm ever lucky enough to have my own family I'll try to recreate the setting from that painting every day :)
    • LazyCook parent reply That is just lovely.
    • VonMotes parent reply It will be at least as hard as painting that painting, it is worth it, but not until you finished do you realize it was. While painting such a picture, it will seem like it is too hard and frustrating, like you can't afford enough canvases to start over so many times as you make mistakes that can't be fixed, but sometimes obtaining the truth requires that we suffer with some solemnity.
  • Channel_Seviyn reply I have not seen one video that you uploaded that I didn't like! You create some very inspirational content which I am extremely grateful for. :-)
  • VonMotes reply First step, MELT THE ONE RING TO RULE THEM ALL, no more NWO, the world is too big for one man to rule. If we had family units on farms that functionally provided life then we would be sane, the destablisation of the family and the masculinationizaton of women are plans of the power mad globalist to break everyone and depopulate the earth of competitors so they can replace everyone with idiot sheeple.
  • [ – ] Good_News_This_Morning reply Agreed. Ditch the TV!
    • Lukhurd parent reply When everyone is focused on the TV during a meal, they don't take the time to appreciate the food and there's no interaction between the different family members.
  • bonniegail reply I am not a pagan. Your video made good points.
  • [ – ] DavidDoel reply You make good points but there are major downsides to homeschooling. Most importantly, the lack of social awareness. When you homeschool your kids that means you cut down on their social development. They will have a harder time empathizing with others and relating different experiences to their own. It's a very sheltered way to grow up, not being exposed to people who are different than you, who have different upbringings and different belief systems than you do. Lack of empathy is a serious issue in our society that leads to power and money-hungry people who only operate in society to serve themselves. There is a way to raise your child through public school without having them turn into just another brainwashed cog in the system. You can raise them to question existing belief systems, challenge authority, and don't be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes.
    • Sigrdrifa parent reply Homeschooling doesn't mean social isolation. Lots of ways for kids to meet other kids outside school - but in situations that are a lot less stressful. That way they can also interact with children of different age groups (after all, not all children develop the same. Imagine how horrible it is to be ahead of/behind your peers but be forced to spend all day with them anyway) Public school means you have a LOT of work to do with unschooling them, not to mention the damage otherwise done to the kids mind. Not worth it. Homeschooling offers many more opportunities.
    • Lukhurd parent reply Eh, there's a difference between socializing and being forced to socialize with complete strangers if you want any friends. Plus, children have to spend a lot of time without their family (notice how much little kids cry when they realize they won't see their mother for most of the day), which is made even worse if they are rejected by the other children. If they aren't rejected, isolation from their own family will cause them to be too independant (as in detached from their own family) and they'll start to rebel against their parents, all sense of family lost, and that's how teens become gangsters or extreme leftists or antifas... When you teach your own children, they won't have to leave their family, they'll still be able to play with other children, minus the side effects of socialization in schools. If you live in a village in the countryside (which is the best if not the only good setting for homeschooling), when the other children are home if they aren't homeschooled, nothing st...moreops you from letting your children play with them. If you live in a minimalistic way (inexpensive piece of land, simple house, no luxuries), then having only the father go to work and the mother taking care of the children could work. If you do some permaculture, hunting, fishing, and gathering, you'll spend even less money. It all comes down to whether or not you live a simple life. If you live an expensive life full of luxuries such as TV, incredibly fast Internet, every console that's currently trending, expensive musical instrument collections, in an apartment building in the middle of a modern city, then yeah, there's absolutely no room for your children to be homeschooled. If you live with no luxuries in the countryside, children won't have to rely on luxuries and socialization outside of the family in order to entertain themselves, as they'll be able to play with neighbors and/or in nature, and because there are no luxuries to spend money on and thanks to permaculture, the mother may not have to go to work. Also, your children won't be exposed to dangerous ideologies. When your teenage children go to school, they may be influenced by something they were shown or some ideology that other teenagers tried to promote, and they may not tell you that such a thing happened, so you can't have control over such situations or say "stay away from this, it's bad". When they're homeschooled, they have a sense of family, and will rely on you for wisdom and ideology, they will learn from YOU and no one else. School prepares children for a modern lifestyle. Homeschooling allows you to teach your children anything school programs don't, including farming, gathering, hunting, fishing, building houses... You were talking about ways to send your children to school without having them conmpletely brainwashed, could you elaborate on this subject? I doubt there are any such ways, but I'd like to hear what you had in mind when talking about such ways.
    • Aeridi parent reply I am a homeschool teacher and I would highly disagree with your comment. It is all relevant to the style of homeschooling that is being taught to the child. The child I teach is an only child as well, however my student is in no way depraved of any social developments, empathy or interactions with peers of the same age. If you implement social studies and teach them universally preferable behavior, etiquette, negotiation, deferral of gratification, then those would need to be practiced in real time. The public school system runs similarly to a public train system. The train makes only the stops it was routed to make and that is it. In a public school, if a child falls behind their prerouted system, they suggest your child is either suffering from retardation or mental illness and suggests you take your child to an institution funded by the state to receive evaluation to be put on medication and if you choose otherwise they expell your child if they cannot handle the matter yourself. S...moreo please, tell me where you have experience in such area as your comment purely states your opinion
    • [ – ] ForgottenRoots parent reply Check this video: https://vid.me/H5nP
      • [ – ] DavidDoel parent reply You have a very myopic view of public school based on your own experience, it does not necessarily mean it is the experience of everyone. Like I said in the previous comment, you make good points, because this is not a black and white world. Of course there are benefits to homeschooling over public school, just as there are benefits to public school over homeschooling. It’s disingenuous to claim there is only 1 right answer.
 For example, you claim public school holds smart people back. That could very well be true, but there are ways to combat that as a teacher or parent. For example, good teachers will recognize this and give smart kids extra challenges to keep them engaged. 

And interaction with “idiots” as you call them, is not a bad thing - it’s a representation of the real world. Our kids are going to grow up and be forced to interact with all sorts of people, nice, mean, dumb, smart, etc. It’s important that kids develop the skills to interact with all of them,...more as all those kinds of people exist as adults. Your suggestions to homeschooling parents is fantastic. But the reality is a lot of parents don’t do that. It really takes serious engagement from the parent in order to homeschool a child with proper social interaction. In other words its a full-time job, it’s not a luxury that many parents can afford - and if you’re a single parent it’s impossible.
        • [ – ] Sigrdrifa parent reply You're saying his view isn't necessarily right. What makes you say that -your- view is more correct? All i get from your comments is that "public school is better because I personally don't know how to homeschool properly"
          • DavidDoel parent reply See the reply above. I'm the only one making the argument that there is no right answer. It depends on the situation of the parents. If they have 18 hours a day to dedicate to homeschooling their children properly, then fantastic. My argument is that most parents don't.
        • [ – ] Replikant parent reply I don't know why do you see home-schooling as being isolated from the rest of the world. Children will still play with other children, not counting various trips, visiting the museums and many, many more. My experience in school is the same as his. Tell me, what is a chance of getting perfect teachers who will do the best they can for the children with potential? Let's pretend it's possible. They still have a class counting XX pupils. You just can't give all attention to one or a few chosen ones. It's not only about the indoctrination, it's also about the fact that teaching individually or in a small group is incomparably more efficient.
          • DavidDoel parent reply What's the chance of getting parents that can dedicate their entire day to educating their children followed by an evening of bringing them into social interactions with other children? This really comes down to do the parent(s) have enough time and energy to dedicate 18 hours a day to their children? My argument is most don't. If yours do, then fantastic, homeschool would work.
  • LazyCook reply I couldn't agree with you more. Brilliant!
