The Gaslighting of the Millennial Generation – Born Again Minimalist

Posted on

A very interesting read. This term ‘gaslighting’ has kept coming up and up for me these past few months and it wasn’t until this weekend I found it it’s from a movie..?!!? With Ingrid Bergman?! Next on my Netflix list: Gaslight (1944).

A great article. Worth the quick 3-minute read.

Francis and the Boys in Los Angeles | National Review Online.

Just in case you wondered how far a reach the Pope has….

Pretty far.

“Dear Pope Francis, Thank you for washing the feet of youth like us in Italy. We also are young and made mistakes. Society has given up on us, thank you that you have not given up on us.

….

It is hard to be young and surrounded by darkness. Pray for me that one day I will be free and be able to help other youth like you do.

Dear Pope Francis, Tonight we pray for all victims of violence. The families of people we have hurt need healing. Our families need healing. We are all in pain. Let us feel Jesus’ healing tonight.

Dear Pope Francis, I read that the harshest sentence that a youth can receive in Italy is 20 years. I wish this was true here. I hope I hear back from you. I have been catholic and glad I am catholic because I have a pope like you. I will pray for you every day because we need examples of God like you are in this violent world. “

18 Reasons Why Doctors and Lawyers Homeschool Their Children |  ChildrensMD.

My favorites:

“We are able to work on the kids’ behavior and work ethic throughout the day. My son’s poor work effort at school was nearly impossible to address. The teachers didn’t have time to make my son repeat work they felt was average quality. We wouldn’t see the work until days after it was completed. Finally, we’ve been able to push him to his full potential.”

“Research continues to show that homeschooled kids do well socially. Our kids have no shortage of time with friends—each week they attend homeschool co-op, scouts, sports, dance, choir, piano, religious education and have plenty of time to play with neighborhood friends. Add in the birthday parties and homeschool field trips, and we find ourselves having to decline activities so that we can get our homeschooling done!”

 

Homeschooling.  It’s awesome.
