I’ve been a dad for 18.5 years. And there ain’t a single day in those 18.5 years that I crossed my fingers and hoped school would teach my kids life. Not a single day. I’ve never been to a parent teacher conference and looked at a teacher and said “you got this?” It takes a village I agree, but let’s be candid, I’m King and this is MY posterity. I pray my kids get nuggets from many sources along the way, but expect ME to be the source of power for these kids. It’s on ME to teach them to balance books, what interest is, what top and bottom line revenue is, how to market and how to emotionally connect to other humans. I often hear our education system is “failing” our youth. It’s not. Parents are failing. Dads work 20 hour days to afford the Range Rover for mom. Mom is bat s**t crazy by breakfast and chewing Zoloft like skittles. Mom and dad “stay together for the kids” while not even having the level of respect you would for a roommate let alone spouse. Parents gossip about each other and are more preoccupied with some royal as****es and Oprah than they are their own kids mental health. Parents are failing... I know y’all don’t want to hear that but it’s truth. Mom and dad don’t give a damn about their own mental wellbeing, invest nothing into their own growth, work at s**t jobs they hate, but expect little Johnny to somehow magically find optimism and tenacity in life to live their dreams and fantasy... nah, the truth is this mom and dad... WE ARE THE PROBLEM. The lack of discipline is the problem. YOUR discipline. The plastic screens you use as juvenile pacifiers to avoid conversation and truth are the problem. Your inability to face your own bulls**t is the problem. Your reliance on others to teach and lead is the problem... It’s a sad stage of affairs when kids tell their parents to f**k off and mom and dad chuckle notching it up to a bad day. It’s a sad state of affairs that kids are killing them selves at an alarming rate. It’s not surprising though, mom is too comatose on Xanax to even know the little ones are sad and dad is too busy trying to climb the ladder that he didn’t even know tee ball season has come and gone... PARENTS... We are failing...

I was told that a man becomes what he dreams...so I paid very close attention to my dreams, and always reach for the furthest stars.

I had a dream not long ago to put together an honor society of children...a group of kids from young to old that I will teach every other week for years to come. Today, just a month later...I saw the dream come to action.

Just like the dream, I saw the kids gather around me like the leaves around a tree...gaining an understanding that isn’t typically offered, a different style of educational inspiration. Today was our very first meet up!

Remember kids, never allow anyone or anything to keep you from being who you are and what you came to do...as long as you aren’t hurting anyone, and you aren’t hurting the homies...you have the right to be who you are.

You are the youest you that anyone could ever possibly be, and that’s a good enough reason alone to always be yourself!! Let your love lights shine!!

I hope you will read Dave Ramsey’s comments about going cashless. It’s a two minute read and he does a nice job of explaining this:
Dave Ramsey repost:
HERE'S WHAT NO CASH ACTUALLY MEANS:
A cashless society means no cash. Zero. It doesn’t mean mostly cashless and you can still use a ‘wee bit of cash here & there’. Cashless means fully digital, fully traceable, fully controlled. I think those who support a cashless society aren’t fully aware of what they are asking for. A cashless society means:
* If you are struggling with your mortgage on a particular month, you can’t do an odd job to get you through.
* Your child can’t go & help the local farmer to earn a bit of summer cash.
* No more cash slipped into the hands of a child as a good luck charm or from their grandparent when going on holidays.
* No more money in birthday cards.
* No more piggy banks for your child to collect pocket money & to learn about the value of earning.
* No more cash for a rainy day fund or for that something special you have been putting $20 a week away for.
* No more little jobs on the side because your wages barely cover the bills or put food on the table.
* No more charity collections.
* No more selling bits & pieces from your home that you no longer want/need for a bit of cash in return.
* No more cash gifts from relatives or loved ones.
What a cashless society does guarantee:
* Banks have full control of every single penny you own.
* Every transaction you make is recorded.
* All your movements & actions are traceable.
* Access to your money can be blocked at the click of a button when/if banks need ‘clarification’ from you which will take about 3 weeks, a thousand questions answered & five thousand passwords.
* You will have no choice but to declare & be taxed on every dollar in your possession.
* The government WILL decide what you can & cannot purchase.
* If your transactions are deemed in any way questionable, by those who create the questions, your money will be frozen, ‘for your own good’.
Forget about cash being dirty. Stop being so easily led. Cash has been around for a very, very, very long time & it gives you control over how you trade with the world. It gives you independence. I heard a story where a man supposedly contracted Covid because of a $20 bill he had handled. There is the same chance of Covid being on a card as being on cash. If you cannot see how utterly ridiculous this assumption is then there is little hope.
If you are a customer, pay with cash. If you are a shop owner, remove those ridiculous signs that ask people to pay by card. Cash is a legal tender, it is our right to pay with cash. Banks are making it increasingly difficult to lodge cash & that has nothing to do with a virus, nor has this ‘dirty money’ trend.
Please open your eyes. Please stop believing everything you are being told. Almost every single topic in today’s world is tainted with corruption & hidden agendas. Please stop telling me & others like me that we are what’s wrong with the world when you hail the most corrupt members of society as your heroes. Politics & greed is what is wrong with the world; not those who are trying to alert you to the reality in which you are blindly floating along whilst being immobilised by irrational fear. Fear created to keep you doing & believing in exactly what you are complacently doing.
Pay with cash & please say no to a cashless society while you still have the choice.

Using books in general is one of my favorite ways to learn and teach. They’re always a great jumping off point to teach whether it be literacy, math, science, social studies etc, there just seems to be so much you can do with a little bit of creativity.

Cas loves games so making anything into a game is a sure fire way to keep him engaged and excited. He will even to an activity multiple times if it’s a game. He will even pull out older “games” from past topics during his free play

It's becoming more and more clear that we need education reform!

“Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your roadmap through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.”

—John Taylor Gatto, Dumbing us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling

Did you know that our book—The Tuttle Twins and the Education Vacation is based on Gatto’s The Underground History of American Education? Check it out today at TuttleTwins.com

Those of you new to homeschooling this year, if your unsure of where to start and what you should teach your child....

An easy place to start is by looking up your local school boards standards. Every school board has a document for each grade level outlining the concepts in each core area of study and how to support/teach this skill

You can use this as a guide to best support your student while relying on your own education philosophy/methods and your students learning style.

As an example this is GA States Kindergarden Standards -https://www.georgiastandards.org/Georgia-Standards/Frameworks/ELA-Kindergarten-Guidance.pdf

if you need help locating your own state/school boards feel free to ask me for assistance or email your local board and they can email you the file directly.

Raise them Wild

Education starts from birth, from our first breath we start to learn about the world around us.

In College when studying to become an ECE (Early Childhood Educator) we did an in-depth study on different philosophy types, like Montessori, Waldorf, and Riggio Emelia. I had only really known about Montessori practices (some of which we use) and it was very interesting to learn about some others. But, I was very moved by Riggio Emelia’s philosophy; how they took the children to the statues of the town, to explore, touch, and do rubbings. There was just something amazing about the untraditional exploration that excited me, as well as the idea of 100 Learning Languages. (see bottom)

After my son was born I started to look more into unstructured forms of homeschool, like school, forest school, garden school, wild school, etc. My biggest thing was I hated ridged routine set to specific time slots, Specific activities at specific times. I also hated set units with endless worksheets, sitting and heavily teacher/parent led programming. From what I had learned in College I wanted a strong emphasis on play, not just in early years but through life, I wanted exploration and dirt, child-led activities, children's interest to mold the program, and above all I wanted it to be slow, flexible and FUN.

Most parents start “schooling” around four-five years old when they go or would go to kindergarten. By this time most already have some solid interests and set ways of play. By starting at birth we mold interests too. Like with anything a child learns from food and eating, religion, mannerisms etc. this is from birth and well before school-age. When starting at birth or in toddlerhood, you are able to instill positive ideas and interests such as respect for the earth, conservation, mindfulness, natural and healthy eating and medicine, active play and exploration (sans digital), love of literacy, it's really endless.

Thanks to Spartan, we're thinking of making dreamcatchers today. And what better way to find materials for this project than to go out into "nature’s arts and crafts supply store" -- your own backyard or the nearby woods!

Notice: I have opened up the store function on my website. If I can meet a minimum number of order/payments through my website I will keep this function open, if not I will revert back to invoicing until a time where I am able to try again based on volume. I hate to lose the personal aspect of invoicing and conversing but I know for many this is an easier option. www.justaphaseholistic.guru additionally, resources and more from Raw n' Wild Collective will also be available here
