Child Labour

I think children should be encouraged to get physical and sweat.  Kids nowadays are too cosseted and mollycoddled.  They are afraid of getting dirty and sweaty.  And it’s a positive shame!

I hope that our decision to homeschool will provide the children with many opportunities to get mucky.  I hope they learn to love the feel of earth in their fingers, the sensation of walking barefoot on the grass and the indescribable satisfaction of falling asleep physically tired.

There is nothing like using your body to teach you to appreciate it and what it does for you and what it allows you to do.

We love Eric Herman

Go to his website www.erichermanmusic.com and check out the music videos!  They are so fresh and original.  The kids love them.  I think the current favourite is Snow Day.  They keep asking when it’s going to snow in Malaysia, LOL.  I am desperate to buy some of his music.

Love his energy!
