Our Kids, Our Choice
As we enter our new Earth, we will keep what has worked since the beginning of time to support growing children, like breastfeeding, and will shine light on areas that have gained more interest during this great awakening time, like informed consent, homeschooling and homebirth.
Unique to breastmilk, is its ability to change according to a baby's age, to suit his/her developmental needs and how it includes white blood cells and antibodies, along with other immune boosting properties, to promote optimal health. Breastfeeding also supports mom's health by lowering her risk of both ovarian and breast cancer, supporting her heart health, regulating insulin levels, along with many other benefits.
Yet what homeschooling has in common for all, is the ability to take ownership of your child’s education rather than hand it over to a broken system that doesn’t always have your child’s best interest at heart.
Vaccines for Children
In 1986, Congress removed all liability from vaccine manufacturers, through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which made way for a vaccine schedule that more than tripled in number. Today, 69 doses are recommended before the age of 18, yet children are not healthier and are dealing with chronic disease in greater numbers than ever seen in our history.
Informed consent and knowing your state’s religious, philosophical and medical exemptions can empower you to make better choices for your child’s health.
More women are opting for a planned homebirth to welcome their baby into the world in a more comfortable setting surrounded by loved ones. It also allows them to follow the natural course of birth, which the female body was designed to do.
Planned homebirths are associated with lower rates of maternal morbidity, postpartum hemorrhage, perineal lacerations, along with lower rates of birth interventions and higher rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration.
Homeschooling has never been more important. The WHO has defined what implied consent entails in this document consent_note_en.pdf (who.int) and specifically in this section below which appears on page 3. It's imperative that we share this information with parents in our communities.
"An implied consent process by which parents are informed of imminent vaccination through social mobilization and communication, sometimes including letters directly addressed to the parents. Subsequently, the physical presence of the child or adolescent, with or without an accompanying parent at the vaccination session, is considered to imply consent. This practice is based on the opt-out principle and parents who do not consent to vaccination are expected implicitly to take steps to ensure that their child or adolescent does not participate in the vaccination session. This may include not letting the child or adolescent attend school on a vaccination day, if vaccine delivery occurs through schools.
Many students and families have chosen homeschooling for their educational journey. Study.com strives to make education more accessible to all people, in and out of a formal classroom. That's why we've recently developed several comprehensive guides to help students and families make the most of their homeschool experiences. The following resources can help students and families understand more about homeschooling resources and methods:
