A new study from Stanford University shows that Danish kids who postponed kindergarten for up to one year showed dramatically higher levels of self-control.

"We found that delaying kindergarten for one year reduced inattention and hyperactivity by 73% for an average child at age 11," Thomas Dee, one of the co-authors and a Stanford Graduate School of Education professor, said in a release.

I want to protest in the strongest possible terms two stories in the Oct 14 News by Tyler Olsen; they look very much like a one-two punch of propaganda from a malignant campaign to force so-called early childhood 'education' on British Columbia families.

The first story was headlined Number of 'vulnerable' children entering school on the rise, with the sub-head Increase related to lack of core 'emotional and social competencies'" The 'vulnerabilities' and 'emotional and social competencies' are vaguely explained as a lack of self-control; but there is no indication of any research that identifies the cause of that lack.

When my son was four years-old, I bought him his first journal. I had no idea how he would fill the pages, but I knew there were stories inside of him that needed to come out.

At first, I questioned my decision. Even though my son was a very verbal child, I struggled to get a story out of him. However, I didn't give up. We kept at it on a regular basis. He seemed more comfortable and confident each time and the pages began to fill up. JM's original stories were only 2-3 pages, but eventually they grew to 15-20 pages. He told stories about things that were important to him...

The number of wineries in San Luis Obispo County has exploded over the past decade, and while my focus was on connecting with some new properties along with checking on developments at long-time favorites.

"Hard cider" is not new to American culture. It was a staple of early settlers in the British colonies. It is reported that, in the 1670s, some New England villages with apple orchards were producing upward of 500 barrels or about 25,000 to 30,000 gallons of cider a year for their community! Even children drank hard cider with breakfast and dinner.

A new study out of Tennessee is indicating that the universal preschool program in the state may be a complete waste of money that doesn't actually benefit the children enrolled and may actually harm them.

This study has similar conclusions as one in Quebec that examined low-cost daycare programs, as well as studies that suggest that Head Start has little to no academic benefits for the children who enroll in the program. In many cases, putting a child into a low-standards pre-k classroom led to a worse outcome than a child who didn't receive any care.

Traditional schools in the United States and many other countries are training grounds, intentionally constructed to prepare children for the System. Public and many private schools are designed to program children to be asleep, and stay asleep.

Our innocent kids are systematically programmed with worthiness issues, depression and the abhorrent need to fit in. Once a child is programmed for 12 or more years, he or she is well primed to move into the "real world" with beliefs and behaviors that feed and perpetuate a systematic agenda. Schools are structured so that rewards are given for following along, being good, doing as you are told, memorization and repetition. Punishment is given for speaking out, thinking for yourself and not following along.

All News Pipeline was recently sent an email that contained a very strange warning that was recently given out by a private school near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ahead of the Pope's visit next week in which the date of September 18th was given.

After reading this letter, what do you think? The letter begins: "We are living in very difficult times in this world." Why do they specifically mention September 18th? Much more including a statement from this concerned parent and several more pictures and videos below.

A few years ago when I was throwing around the idea of homeschooling my daughter, I had a discussion with a friend of mine over coffee and goldfish crackers while our kids played with wooden trains.

It was a reasonable assumption. After all, I'm an introverted artist and writer living rurally with extended family and plenty of bizarre thoughts floating around in my head. Basically, I'm a weirdo. But no, I wasn't homeschooled. I was educated in the public school system. That's right Mrs. Warnica, what I am today is all on you.

A recent warning from the Food and Drug Administration is telling women to avoid ultrasound scans. In the warning it says: "Ultrasounds can heat tissues and in some cases, produce very small bubbles or cavitation in some tissues."

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, an organization of women's healthcare physicians, has said for a long time that ultrasounds should be used only if there is a medical benefit to the pregnancy.

I have ADHD and so does the Hippy Hubby. It has been a reality for me my entire life. My mom did a good job at trying to avoid diet triggers and shoved me outside to play as much as possible, but sometimes it can still be very difficult.

I have spent the last 9 months developing this aromatherapy blend so that it would be helpful to every member of my attention deficit, hyperactive clan. After doing as much research as I could, as well as testing out my creations on myself and the rest of my hyperactive clan, I have developed this aromatherapy blend, Calm Your Squirrel!
