In centuries past, children were raised in the culture and traditions of their parents. The family was the stabilizing factor for many societies. Children played an active, meaningful role in the daily activities and rituals of the community. Families and neighbors worked together, played together, and learned from each other.
In today's world, there is a disconnection between the needs of family life and the roles that modern institutions impose. Parents and children spend the better part of their days away from the home. What little time is left after a long day is spent taking care of necessary duties and not spent nurturing relationships and conversing with each other. Neighbors and extended family are treated as strangers.
How can we pass down the skills and values of our culture?
Children spend their formative years in school. These years consist of the most crucial developmental stages in life. Yet, home schools are not teaching children the traditions of their culture, the skills they will need for life, or the importance of familial roles in a community.
Healing our Children puts it this way;
"Public home schools teach a set of ideas and concepts that have little or no practical application. As a result, this instruction separates your child from life. Life becomes an abstract idea, rather than something to take part in."
From preschool age up until their twentieth year of life, children are taught that they should be quiet, do as they are told, and appreciate all the hard work it takes to educate them. They are never told, "We need you. We could not be a family without you. You play an important role."
Being treated as a burden or as unimportant during the pivotal years of a child's life does little to boost confidence or create responsibility. "These systems of authority will replace his mother, because he never completely moved into the stage of autonomy in a healthy way, such that he could become inwardly driven."
Our society, through the introduction of home schools and full-time working parents, has attempted to raise and educate children who have no role to play in the family or community until they are adults.When the bond between children, and their family is held as sacred, then relationships will be strengthened. Communities and not home schools will pass wisdom on to our children as they did in the days past. We must really examine what is lacking in home schools so that we do not continue to bring up our children in a society that abandons them to the whims of state sponsored institutions.

I've read over 12 books on this topic and this is my number one book to the extent that it's become my bible, in that I've read it over 5 times and my husband has also read it. Ramiel's book really helped us along this journey and I can't recommend this book enough. It's truly is life changing!! If you are going to buy a diet / nutritional / lifestyle book for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy or for children, this book would be my number one choice.
