| February 26, 2014

When I was growing up, my Mom worked a lot. She was a hair dresser during the day and waited tables at night. Sometimes, she had three jobs. That was life. She was divorced, buried her oldest son and she worked. My Mom never walked around saying being a Mom was hard. Life was hard, but she didn’t walk […]

The “Coldness” and “Self-Indulgence” of Those Who Don’t Want to Trouble Themselves with Children

| July 18, 2013

Today, the idea of having lots of children is looked upon with disdain, as if you hate the planet or have become one of those parasites of nature that needs to be restrained.

From Generations with Vision with Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner. “Americans are inconsistent.

Why is Europe committing demographic suicide?

| April 13, 2013

Sobering: Demographers, economists and psychologists are scratching their heads over a phenomenon that breaks all their statistical models and paradigms of human behaviour.

From the Wall Street Journal: For more than three decades, Chinese women have been subjected to their country’s brutal one-child policy.

| January 30, 2013

From Andrea Mrozak over at Mercatornet: Improving education outcomes is a goal for schools and ministries of education all over the world.

It will be interesting to note, then, whether those who desire these improvements […]

The Need to Breed

| January 9, 2013

Here is a great post from Get Along Home that bluntly states an obvious truth that our short sighted, “me centered” modern society seems to be oblivious to: We don’t seem to understand (and by “we”, I mean “not me”) that children are a literal investment. You have to put in the work to get […]

Our own thing

| July 15, 2012

In our day, expressions like “personal growth”, “self-fulfillment” and “following our own dreams” are tossed into the air on a regular basis.
