    I resigned from teaching due to CoVid and having stressed induced diabetes because of the job. I have taught in a variety of schools from Montessori, Charter, and Public. I would stay extremely far away from Public, because of an alternative agenda. Montessori was interesting. I worked at Bob Hope Charter school where their philosophy was based on Montessori strategies. However, this is where I really started seeing technology being pushed. I even stopped one day in my tracks and said to myself, “Are these students really benefitting from all this tech, or are they being programmed,” because while I stepped back I could see the students acting more and more like machines. My experience being a teacher was eye opening and there is so much to do with education.

    Don’t forget Charlotte Mason for homeschooling and her thoughts on children with connection and being observant with nature! Love Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio Emelia also!

    Child-led (supports natural love of life-long learning), mind-body-soul connection and wellness management, security felt by a safe and secure foundational environment all are ingredients to a resilient individual! I am all about our role as parents, is to be the example or to I’m with you Bret!

    And the hard lessons we endure can color us positively in our futures if we paint it that way. It’s not about avoiding pain and misfortune but to learn how to manage ourselves through and past it..

    Very interesting lesson…!

    Bret, I’m sorry to hear you had PTSD, I’ve had it myself and know for sure how difficult it was and sometime is to live life after a traumatic experience. I’m happy to see you’re doing well.

    I love that Montessori is mentioned here. I´m a Montessori teacher and can see many similarities between it and Permaculture. My plan is to combine the two in the future 🙂

    I love that kids was brought up for this course! There is SO much that can be said about raising kids in today’s economy and society. I’m constantly trying to get my “city-kids“ more into nature and gardening, partially because I grew up surrounded by nature and I want them to enjoy that same wholesome feeling I get when outside city limits.

    Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv is a really good book addressing Nature-Deficit Disorder, I’m only halfway through, but I couldn’t recommend this book enough!

    Consider looking into Reggio Emelia inspired (its actually a town in Italy) and their approach to “childcare” and early childhood education.
