Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Anger in Children is Purely Selfishness?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Angry ChildrenEditor's note: Michael seems to be saying here that if you control your child and everything about their environment then the incidents of anger will be lessened. While I agree that teaching children to deal with their emotions and the things that frustrate them is a very important goal it still seems likely that the switch is not too far off in the world of Micheal Pearl child training. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Taking Love Out of Marriages?

quotingquiverfull

by Hunter Wallace at Occidental Dissent as quoted by Nathanael Strickland of Faith & Heritage - Against Love-Based MarriagesEditor's note: So now love between marital partners is wrong? Marrying for love leads to disaster for society at large? Cannot wrap my mind around being married to someone you did not love and sharing the day to day intimacies of marriage without love. Fundamental Christianity really is the craziest of mindsets. This type of thinking must be a factor in why there are higher divorce rates in Evangelicals. … [Read more...]

News: HSLDA’s Newest Defense Case – The Naugler Family

news

Initially wasn't going to post about Kentucky CPS seizing all ten children in the Naugler family since it's been well covered at both Homeschoolers Anonymous and in great depth by Kathryn Brightbill. But.. more and  more comes out each day on this family.

Stories are emerging about things like piles of garbage, human feces and glass being rife on the homestead as well as the photos of the family home, basically a tent top with three stick walls they've lived in even in the cold of winter. Failure to … [Read more...]

Do Not Turn Yourself Inside Out

by Nora Woodhouse cross posted from her blog A Heart Like Mine"Do not turn yourself inside out trying to explain yourself to people who refuse to see you. You know who you are."I really liked this quote; I always seem to find things like this when I really need them. A wave of sadness had hit me yesterday, in part because I was still trying to recover and process from a nightmare the night before. I had this horrible dream Other Child was dying and there was nothing I could do about it. I was at their bedside forced with having to let them go. I think a dream like that is fairly representative of how I am still sorting through my feelings after making the choice to go no contact. … [Read more...]
