protecting our children from what is real

"You walk around the yard naked too much. I think this is unhealthy for your children" The moment those word left that persons mouth, a light came on for me. This is our culture! We protect the kids from everything that is real, and in exchange we give them half truths and watered down realities. Why!? Is it because it's what's best for the child? Or, are we afraid of the questions they will...

Raising wild, strong-willed children is not for the faint at heart. I choose not to spank my children. I want them to make good decision because it's what their hearts are requiring from them.

You have laughed at the Wise-Woman, shamed the lover, and judged the wild woman. You have called the healer a witch and openly discarded her ancient remedies and the herbal lore she holds. You have shunned The Priestess, and taunted the empath while you name her weak for her compassion. You have called the Great Mothers instinct running through me crazy so that you can turn your face from the...
