The Case Against Teaching

by Naomi Aldort

Q: I cannot get my children, 13, 10 and 7, into anything of value. I try to create “life learning” situations but they are not interested.

“Well here it is again. as I start my 83rd trip around the sun,I

 am so lucky to be here. From a bad orphanage to a worse 

foster home to all the things it took to get here. I have survived 

5 broken bones, 2 concussions and somewhere over 100 stitches, 

cancer and heart surgery, and various operations from appendectomy to vasectomy.. still have some of my hair and teeth, have glasses and hearing aids...Somehow I got thru it all, and so it seems to me that God in greater wisdom forgives my humanity. Onward…"


Why am I quoting it on a parenting page? For perspective. Witnessing someone picture of a full length life can help us see our children with more calm and trust.
