Download and read online Raising Children Today Is a Job in PDF and EPUB This story is about the young men and women today and how they are being trapped in their own little cage by not doing the right things in life. When we people have children, we have an obligation to teach, discipline, love them, and let them know not to engage in what amuses people but to let them know that what they do in life will reflect on their lives in the future. Raising children is a job, and we are failing our job by not listening to what is expected of us—that is, to give our children more than we have. They can’t get it without education, respect, discipline, and a lot of love and understanding of what they have to face. Let’s stop having babies at a young age and start planning for our young men and women’s future. We also need to put our priority in place first and leave man-made things alone (hatred, greed, drugs, killing, stealing, sex before you have a husband or wife, etc.).

Download and read online The Flaming Circle in PDF and EPUB "A Regeneration of the Pre-Christian Spiritual Worldviews and Religious Practices of the Holy Isles." This book is very different from anything Robin Artisson has written so far, for a very special reason: it is written in the tone of a father to his children. This book is a gift for his children, full of things he would want them to know and things he would want to tell them, to help them through their lives. The book is closer, more intimate, and warmer than most of his work. But it includes massive amounts of material regarding native British Isles (Britain and Ireland) traditional Paganism and spiritual ecology, and native Gods and Goddesses. Tons of scholarly backing and personal inspiration, as well as a wide and complete selection of traditional Pagan philosophical "points of guidance" are offered, as a father would want to offer his most beloved offspring. A full working reconstruction of the pre-Christian polytheistic religious perspectives and practices of Pagan Britain and Ireland is "taught" in its pages, like a guidebook and a long letter/narrative being sent from father to children. There is a long occult tradition of such exchanges. All are invited to listen in on a man telling the most important things he can tell his children, and hoping that they remember these things when he is gone and they have children of their own. A very personal project, but one he has wanted to create and write for years, and it deals with years worth of material he has collected.

Download and read online More Love Less Panic in PDF and EPUB In this heartwarming and hilarious memoir, Claude Knobler describes how he learned the hard way that the apple actually can fall far from the tree—and that’s Okay. Already the biological parents of a seven-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, Claude Knobler and his wife decided to adopt Nati, a five-year-old Ethiopian boy who seemed different from Knobler in every conceivable way. After more than five years spent trying to turn his wild, silly, adopted African son into a quiet, neurotic, Jewish guy like himself, Knobler realized the importance of having the courage to love, accept, and let go of his children. In this wonderfully written memoir, Knobler explains how his experiences raising Nati led him to learn a lesson that applied equally well to parenting his biological children: It’s essential to spend the time we are given with our children to love them and enjoy them, rather than push and mold them into who we think they should be.
