"Before we get to the last 29 minutes, which is the mano armano. We'll talk about that in a moment. Talk to us about your favorite scene or your favorite line. I have to say, there's two lines. They come one pretty close to each other. And you all want ugly mother. Oh yes, classic probably the most famous line of the movie you is one ugly mother. Delivered quite well because the expression on his face. I mean, he does look shocked. Yeah, yeah. And I remembered even from a kid, even when I was 8 years old, I remember that line thinking that's a cool line. And then later, at the very end, he looks at him, and he is about to kill him, but he realized that the guys, you know, this monster is going to die. I don't have to, I don't have to finish above. And he just looks at him and he's kind of like almost in a reflection as the predator was looking at him earlier, and examining his face. When he pushed him up against those rock there. And he's looking at this monster examining him, and he just goes, what the hell are you? And then the monster repeats this and I love those two lines.

What Is SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome) and What Is Causing It?
"Been watching the news that isn't the January 6th committee prime time show, there is a new thing that is starting to gain some traction, which is called sudden adult death syndrome or sudden arrhythmic death syndrome, either one works. Where all of a sudden, healthy adults are just dropping dead dead inexplicably, that there are people that are perfectly healthy, they're adults, and they start dropping dead. This is being reported on more and more. Now we started to see a lot of these stories over the last year and you've sent us a lot of those stories at freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com of a lot of healthy young people that drop dead inexplicably. Now it just so happens those young people in those adults had recently got a COVID vaccine, but of course there's not there's no way they could be connected because the vaccine is totally a 100% safe. 100%. It's honestly a modern miracle. The mRNA technology. It's amazing that we're even able to mention it. In fact, the mRNA technology, the gene altering technology, it might just be, it might be mano from heaven, actually. Play cut 79. Just baffled by increase in sudden adult death syndrome. Are they are they that stupid? I don't think that they're stupid. I think that they think we are stupid. And I mean, they're kind of right. Sudden adult death syndrome really. We just have suddenly all these extra deaths. And we know, we have no idea why. But we do know that it's not the vaccine, that's the one thing that they can tell you for sure. There are too many powerful institutions and stakeholders involved here that all have huge interests in us not knowing what the side effects are of this vaccine. But it's definitely not because the vaccine that we know. Maybe Trump voters, it might be because of insurrectionists, it might also, you know what? It might be because of the big lie. That's why people are just dropping dead. Or it might be, it might be Tucker Carlson's fault, but it certainly is not the vaccine.

"Sinoe. Homeschooling is just regular repetitive activities. And sometimes i can feel like wrote or mundane but god is in the in those daily moments washing dishes and cooking dinner and doing math. He will meet you there. I think we need to not feel like every encounter with god is going to be the spectacular mountain top thing. He meets us in the day. Yeah listen to god because he will give you the answers that you need if there is a challenge if there is a need he loves you and he loves your kids and he has a good father and he wants to bless you and provide for you and meet your needs so i think listening to him and then the last thing i will say is decide to enjoy the journey. Enjoy your kids and enjoy your life. This isn't it's a season of sacrifice but it doesn't need to be a season of drudgery. Yeah you know what i mean like. There can be joy in this season and a lot of fun together. Yeah yeah oh. That's a great way to tie this up Know there is so much joy when we look for in so much of it is about perspective. How are we seeing our kids through the lens of scripture. Through god's is you know as much as we can. We were not god of course but you know how does he see them and then trying to see them in in light of how he made them how he created them and ourselves as well you know. Cut ourselves some slack.

"So glad that you've joined me again today. I am back with nancy manotas. And we're having fun this week. We are talking all about successful homeschooling and some of the things that get in our way we kind of talked about success in what success looks like in our christian home schools and You know it looks different than what the world thinks. Success like psych. And so if you missed our conversation In the beginning. Go back and listen to monday's episode and yesterday's episode which was on wednesday and we're going to continue down this road of how to successfully homeschool and they knew it looks different for everybody. Not everybody has the i mean. No one has the same homeschool. It's it's you know it's interesting. Because it's kind of like a fingerprint. Everybody has a unique fingerprint. Everybody has a unique homeschool as well. I don't think there's a person who's homeschool looks exactly the same as someone else's we're all using different curriculum. We all have different sized families. We all use different methods. We all have different learning styles. We all have different teaching styles. So there's not one formula that works perfectly for everybody but some of these things that we're talking about today we'll help anybody everybody to be successful no matter how you teach no matter how you home no matter how your kids learn and again pointing back to jesus that's it that's what it's all about you know. How can we point our kids towards the cross Lately that is what matters most. And so i wanna talk a little bit about goal setting and we. We've kind of breezed over this a little bit. But i know and i think it was the last time we talked when we talked about. The price is right. You are on a few weeks ago and we talked a little bit about goal setting in knowing your why and we have to kind of know what the end goal is. But i want to dig into that just a little bit more and how his home schoolers. We can set goals for our children and for ourselves. Sure well. I think one thing. That's really helpful is to determine where your child is right now. So you're not just looking at what level of math there in or spelling but you also want to evaluate like where are they spiritually and physically emotionally and socially. Because we're not just doing academics. You know they're physical things like before they can right. They need fine motor skills. So you know. There's all those kind of things but are they. Do they need help with how to interact with other people. You know social things emotional things so start by identifying where they are and then you're gonna set measurable attainable goals and so talk about it with your spouse talk about it with your child if they're a little bit older to and figure out how to incorporate these objectives you know. Say you want your child to can't even think of an example right now but you know. Pick a a spiritual goal. Maybe it's read through the bible in a year as a family. Well then you need to by having that goal then you work it into your daily schedule so that you can accomplish that. And then you want personal goals and family goals to And then the reason that you have goals is because you then evaluate every activity your curriculum everything that you do gets evaluated against your goals. Does this meet our goals. So maybe a family goal is. We're having dinner together every week night. Or whatever or where. We don't have a lot of extracurricular activities because family time is important. Well then when an opportunity comes up you know you have this personal family goal and you have to assess as like okay. Are we going to say yes. Or we're going to say no so those can really help you. And so and then in talking about our final obstacle to success is a lack of organization. So you're right. Organization is one of my very favorite things in my life and i believe it's a biblical principle order promotes peace and so if you've piles everywhere and you are fighting to find what you need. It creates stress and we can eliminate that no this is not about perfection again. It's not about having everything constantly organized you live in your house and you have small people living in your house and you're doing things all day. It's different if you're away at work all day and you come home at dinnertime and no one made a mess so we have to be okay with the masses but it's about creating an environment where learning can happen because you're not waiting through a mess and you can find your supplies in those kind of things. So i have some tips for organizing supplies in your day and things like that. Yeah bring it okay. So some of the things. Now keep in mind i. My children graduated in two thousand ten and two thousand eleven. So i did not homeschool when there was google drive and things like that but these are some of the things that i found really helpful that my kids could also participate in i used. We have a lateral file. And i had a color hanging file folder for each girl and each subject had a tab and i made them responsible for filing their paperwork. Because i would get overwhelmed. You've probably felt this way. If you have a stack of papers waiting to be looked at. Oh yes like it would kill me emotionally and so i needed things organized so that i could deal with them. When i was ready i knew where to find them. And so three ring. Binders hanging file folders. You know that any of those kind of things can be really helpful in heavier. Kids help you. And it's good for them to learn skills but they want to be part of the you know the team We used a lot of classic plastic bins and drawers. I'm a big fan of a label maker and they're just fun i know but having sa- kind of having a place for everything and teaching your kids to put things back when they're done and also teaching yourself to put things back when you're done If you set it down you have to pick it up later so you could just put it back so we always had a rule in our house. Don't put it down. put it back. Oh that's a good one and my kids would roll their eyes. Every time i'd say it but you know what they learned it and now you know they've olivia's a mom too and she appreciates these pointers and something. That's really helpful with your home. School supplies is to have a designated place for things. Even if you don't have designated homeschool room like have a shelf or a closet or have been or something in the area where you do school. We always had a policies not the right word but a rule. Basically we let the girls keep their school things in their bedrooms. Because i felt like. I would never find them again. You know and i also didn't. I wanted their rooms to be a place of relaxation. And so if it was put everything done back at the end of the day then we knew where to find things the next day and then also as the mom prepping for the next day i had to look ahead you know. Is our science experiment. A craft project. Do i have all those supplies. Because there is nothing worse than sitting down at the table we're to do. This project might not find something. You know your kids keeping their attention if they're anything like mine. Once i lost their attention really hard to get it back. Yes so those are some pointers. They're like your art supplies and your science supplies in your math manipulatives and things house a place for them even if it's a small corner of your dining room on a bookshelf with the bins. Or.

"In order to be able to effectively have expectations of them ineffectively. Homeschool them in And that's hard to do especially when you have more than one kid but oh yeah. Yeah but you can't enact one of the beauties of home schooling that your home with your kids and so as you're going throughout your day you get just naturally you become the student of your child right. You know what makes them tick. You know it excites them. You know There are strengths and weaknesses. And what a privilege. We have to be able to use that to direct their hearts in their education. Yup it's true another quick one is being sacrifice. So you know parenting. We've already talked about this in. The price is right one about the sacrifice that's involved in being parent. Have you have to give. What sleep if you're sick. You still have to take care of your kids. You eat your food coal. You do without things because your kids need things. Whatever but home. Schooling is like parenting on steroids. Because now you're providing their academic education And i think if we get into a thought life of like. I have to give up so much for these children. Then then it's a self pity thing and i think we just have to recognize that it is a joy and a gift you know to get so into our children for the season and it's worth the sacrifice. Oh yes absolutely is worth the sacrifice if you missed our episode. A few weeks ago called the prices right. Nancy and i got together and did that was really fun. And we talk. We really unpacked. That idea of is home. Schooling worth it you know. What are the sacrifices that we make his parents and is it worth. Is it worth those tax services. So let's take a quick break. We'll be right back learning to write well. In order to effectively communicate. Ideas can be a challenge for many students equipping teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers is key. The institute for excellence in writing is an organization dedicated to training mentoring and providing a model for teachers in a clear sequential and effective method of teaching writing that reinforces history science literature and other content areas. Our methodology begins with dictated content. So rather than sing to child here. Think of something and learn to write we actually give them the content and through the our nine units gradually win them from dictated content to that blank page through the process of learning to write. Well students learn how to think clearly and to express themselves eloquently and persuasively for more information or to order the program visit i e w dot com. We are back with nancy. And we're we're talking about tips for successful homeschooling and kind of those obstacles that get in our way So last we talked about just having unreasonable expectations and then we talked about the sacrifice that we make as parents And whether or not it's it's worth what we're doing so what are some of the other obstacles we can face. I think a lack of commitment can be an obstacle to success. So if you are living your home school life with we had a bad day. So i'm going to threaten to put my kids back in school that creates a really unstable unsafe atmosphere and it communicates to your kids that you're not serious about this. And so then they're not going to cooperate. It becomes the cycle. And so you know you have to understand that life is not easy homeschool. Life is not. It doesn't mean it has to be hard. It can be very joyful but there will be challenges and we just need to understand that if you have kind of that long-haul vision for it. Just like i treat it like my marriage. Quitting is not an option. We could be happier miserable. Let's work on happy and so kind of the same with my kids was. I'm in this. We're going to make the best of it when it's hard we're gonna pray we're gonna forgive. We're going to overcome and that really created some stability for us to help us keep going. Yeah i think. Lack of boundaries is an obstacle to success. It could be your own internal boundaries. You know social media to me is the biggest drain of time. And i'm guilty of being on my phone all the time. I'm not raising children right now. And i'm glad that we didn't have that in my home school days but back then i would check email every you know. I was online and doing things that would pull me away from home schooling and as soon as i left the room my kids were like we're not doing our work. It's not just me Things they confessed after they were grown. About what would happen funny like oh we would just get out a book and start reading and not do our math okay. Shut down for my computer. Are you guys doing your mouth. Yeah mom have to understand that. There's boundaries but i think also external boundaries you know so we can get in our way but other people if we don't protect our home school time. Yeah other people think. Oh your home. Watch my kids. Could you do this for me could you. You know and then pretty soon you know that bible verse about the little foxes that spoil the vine like all these little things will steal your home school time if you don't have boundaries to protect it yeah and so i also think trying to replicate school at home is an obstacle to success. Yeah because we're not schooling. Our children were disciple ing our children. Right and part of that. Discipleship includes math and science and grammar and reading but also teaching them principles for living and critical thinking skills and ethics and manners and caring for others. And you know it's not sit at a desk. Do this work for fifty minutes. Then we're moving on if there's something that they're enjoying or they want to keep working on. We don't have a bell. That's gonna ring when math is done and if it only takes fifteen minutes okay. Great you can move on. If you get done early you get the whole afternoon free. You know whatever And so think outside that school frame right in liberty you have. I think you know there's a lot of joy in that yeah for sure. Couple more quick. Ones outsourcing too much beauty of home is the interaction between parents and their children. And are there resources that we can utilize absolutely we did. Some small co ops in some enrichment classes and things. But i wanted to be at the core of children's education so find the balance that works for you but if you outsource the whole thing you are missing out on a blessing because it really is more about relationship that academic academics are important if that makes sense and then kind of one. Last one is treating curriculum as your master. So maybe you have a friend or maybe you've said this you know you're getting towards the end of the school year in. You're like we're so behind. We'll never finish. Have you said that. Yeah and it could be for a couple of reasons one. You plan too much or too. Haven't finished what you plan and the other might be that your curriculum. You won't be done by the time you figured you'd be done. It's okay if some things take longer like my girls. Algebra was not their thing. One took a year and a half one to two years. I didn't care that. It took them longer. Because i wanted them to master the concepts. You know not finish a curriculum. it's just think about curriculum is a tool. And you don't want to be in the other ditch where you're lazy and sloppy and they haven't learned anything you know you're still in chapter one or less than one thirty six weeks in but you does that make sense yes i need. The balance curriculum isn't telling.

"Am so excited to have you back. Nancy with me so fun. So you're on a few weeks ago and we were talking about the prices right. That was really fun. We talked about the price of home schooling and and is it worth it. Is it really worth the sacrifice that we make as parents to home school our kids and so this time we're gonna talk about successful homeschooling and i know that this is a topic that every homeschool mom loves to talk about Because we all want to home school successfully. I mean if we didn't we wouldn't be doing it right exactly so For those of you. Who may have missed nancy In her first episode that she did with us a few weeks ago. Nancy could you just introduce yourself to us once again. So i am a graduated mom of homeschool mom of two that we home schooled our daughters from preschool through high school. And i'm a grandma too little boy a grand boys they're two and five and Love the grandma life. It's amazing and i served on the board of directors for the statewide homeschool organization with my husband for thirteen years and then was the executive director for three. And now i'm retired. And i still love encouraging a home homeschool parents so fun and i lived at you it to be grandma. That's so much fun for you. I don't like the long distance grandma thing. They live in northern california. But we get to video then video call and we get to visit them and they come down and see us so it's working out pretty well. Yeah that's nice and you're not terribly far from them. It's a thirteen hour drive. But it's you know flight to san francisco or sacramento and drive up a couple of hours. So yeah it's not close by but it's doable. They're not on the other side of the planet or something so right right which is green not not across the ocean. It's so funny garrett. And i went on a date last night. Actually we found this great taco place that we like. We love tacos but we like kind of like hipster tacos. We're not hipsters but we like hipster tacos with the call names and that are just different than your typical tacos with rice grains and so anyway we went on the state last night and coming home we were talking and do you realize that we're old enough to be grandparents. I was like yes. I do because we been married. Twenty six years and so had we had kids right away. We easily could have grandkids by now. Which should be exciting. I mean i've heard. Grandkids are amazing. I think kids are amazing so if your grandkids are more amazing like people like you tell me then. I really can't wait for grandkids strew. Yeah it's amazing so funny. Hopefully we'll have grand boys granddaughters too but we have no boys in our family. My whole world is girls and so it would be fun to have. Hit is a whole nother world from raising girls to having grand boys. It's a blast. Yeah they're super fun. Yeah that's that's the word on the street. That's what i've heard. Talk to moms of boys and just hearing the stories of things that that they do and they're they're just different. You know god made us male and female and poisoned girls are different in. It's it's good. It's such a good thing. And i cannot understand why the world wants to pervert god's plan because it is such a beautiful design that he has made but anyway. We're not here to talk about that. We're here to talk about tips for successful. Homeschooling in this one of my favorite things to do is to encourage homeschool families to be able to homeschool with excellence. Yeah you've home schooled. You did it for many years. You home school girls all the way through and so i know that the lord has taught you many things through your journey of home schooling and so. I'm grateful that you're back with us again today to be able to encourage our audience with Some very specific things that they can do to be successful in their home. School journey Did let me kind of ask you when you started home schooling. I know you shared time. You were with us that it was not something that you had really planned on doing but you had observed another family who you really respected. And you're like. I really liked that family. And what they stand for So that's kind of what got the wheels turning with you. But i don't imagine that jumping into home schooling. You went into it. And you're like yep i got this. I'm perfectly equipped. I have everything altogether in know. Exactly what i'm doing go. So i assume you learned through the years totally learn along the way i think i was. Probably i think when when you make a decision from the beginning to homeschool there is something about us that we're just naturally swimming upstream. We're kind of cult counter culture and so there was something in me that i was. I was determined to succeed to do my very best with this because this was the decision that we had made in. We did make the decision from the beginning that we were in for the long haul. I didn't see the purpose in educating my children. And then in their t. Early teen years sending them out to be with a group of peers that we're not gonna lead them into godliness guy and so we we did have the long term vision but sure there was lots of things i had to figure out along the way. So i you know. I love the idea of having a plan and a a goal but really we're relying on the lord and so we need both. We need to have a vision for where we're going. But we also need to really be reliant on him because he guides are steps so this topic of success to me is is kind of at the core of our home school adventure. I think you need to start with asking yourself two questions. One is what the successful homeschooling look like to you. You know every family is going to be different Some families are going to have really rigorous academic focus. Some are going to be. My children need extra attention and care. They need to have a quieter environment. Whatever like there's all sorts of dynamics but then there's going to be You know. Are you focused on academic achievement. On you know that they wanna be a doctor. So you're preparing them for that is that you don't know what they're gifting czar yet but you really want to give them a good foundation so just asking yourself and starting having conversations between you and your husband or for the men with their wives what does successful homeschooling look like to you. Start having that an ad digger list as you go. The other thing. And i shared this in our last time together was to think about the end homeschool with the end in. Mind so picture yourself. Your last child has graduated. And you're looking back on your home school experience. What do you want to feel. And what do you want to hope to have accomplished in your time that you've invested with your kids and so those two things can help me to plan my days because i was thinking about the end right at some point. You're going to finish even if you have ten children or twelve children. You will finish homeschooling at some point and you want to look back and know that you did your best. It's never going to be perfect. It's not going to be without flaws and failures and missteps. But do you know your best. And that'll help you make plans for today.

"Keep going keep perseverance. Keep pushing through And so you're again as we talked. You're on the other side of this. Now you've home-schooled your girls you've you've done the thing and i know that it was worth it for you What is the fruit that you have seen. Come out of it not just for your girls but for your family and your you know you and your husband you yourself personally. Well it's such a good question. It's a big question You know. I think it's really important to take knowledge. It's not an easy road to travel but it's a worthwhile road to travel. I can totally look back. And not regret one minute of how i invested my time. Sure i look back. And i would have done different things parenting i would have. We spent so much time in ancient history. We never really got to modern history. And i had a friend who kept telling me if you don't get moving and she was absolutely right You know and so. There's things that we didn't get to work. But but the investment of the time the relationships that we have preparing them for adulthood and looking at who they became as young adults. You know that is gratifying. And i can look back and know that all the good bad and the ugly was totally worth it and god gets the glory. You know all the good that came from it and so You know. I think one of the things that so cool about home. Schooling is because you're with your kids all day you know there are those subjects they struggle with or you know character issues or whatever but there are moments you know. Maybe it's a math concepts that they just not been able to wrap their brain around and finally they get it. You get to be there right. You know it's not just their first steps in there for sentences but it's you know they've mastered something that was hard and you can celebrate with them and so to me that's one of the rewards of this great journey I think it's really worth it when we get to learn to be more patient and more kind and more calm and you know dying to self a little bit putting down those selfish desires. Yeah it helps us grow and mature as believers kim and so. That's you know very rewarding in the home school an adventure. I think it's really worth it when we persevere through our hard season You know we all have hard challenging seasons in our marriage with our kids in our home school too and when we work together. I think there's a closeness in the family that wasn't there before you know if everything's just easy you take things for granted but if you have to buckle down and make it through hard times there's just a and a strength that comes. We have conquered something hard together and we can keep going. I think that there is this amazing gift of seeing our kids develop into godly young women and men. That's the reward you know if there's nothing else if they just love the lord it's enough you know there's so much more to it but to me. That's the core. yeah amen. yeah so. I think the relationships with siblings. If you can get along with the people who live in your house you can probably get along with anybody yet together. All the time and you really learned to navigate. I think things in a healthy way. If we're parenting well if we're helping each other. I think we become better citizens of the planet better human beings better friends better employees later whatever. Yup i agree completely. I tell my girls all the time. I'm like if you can get along with each other. You could get along with anyone and there are always going to be people. And i think that's god's gift to siblings is there. There are always going to be people in your life. Who are going to be so different from you that it's gonna be hard to connect with them in but if you've learned to do that with your siblings with anyone well most anyone. Yes that's true. Some maybe not so much. But i think it's neat to see our kids thriving and growing and becoming who god created them down. Amen that long haul. There's so many people who and this is not a criticism but it is a and it charge to say. Consider home schooling for the long haul. You're only going to home school for a short period. I feel like you're robbing yourself of a great blessing. I did all the hard work teaching my kids to read. I don't wanna miss out on their teen years when they're interesting and we have great discussions and they have more time to go and learn things and do things and not be around the they still have care pressure and they still have things even in the christian community but you're there to kinda shepherd them through those relationships and the navigating those things so to me homeschooling. The teen years was the reward for all those little years that were harder like little kids are hard. they're wonderful. Yeah there's so much fun you know projects and read aloud and all defeats things but the teen years to me. Were most rewarding because of the closeness in our family even when you know the mom and daughter headbutting There are plenty of times. James would come in time. I'll go to your room and he'd help us sort it out but she is truly one of my best friends today. Yeah and it's just neat. So i loved that encouragement with you know having a teenager and a preteen you so often hear from the world. How the teen years. Just as a matter of fact we. This was so terrible. We were at breakfast several weeks ago. And there is an couple sitting next to us and we struck up a conversation with them and they were really sweet and they're talking to us and then asked how will their girls were in brooklyn said fifteen and he said oh. I hated it when my girls were fifteen. He literally said he said they were fifteen years old and i was like. Oh that's so sad. And i mean he was like it brought back and he was. I mean this man was probably in his seventies and it literally brought back like horrible memories for him. And i just wanted to marry to have hated your teen years with your girls. I mean. that's that's really horrible And so i. I appreciate that encouragement because you know there are struggles. I mean you know there's the hormones and there's the emotions and there's all the things but i love the teen years i mean i am genuinely enjoying fifteen years old and i have enjoyed all the years that preceded it i i i i love each year that that my girls grow into a new phase of life. It's exciting because we're watching them. Like you said grow into who god created them to be and we get to be part of that and being obedient to helping them learn you. Know who got made them and Their gifts and talents and abilities and all the things and then just getting to know them as people and becoming friends with them. You know. we're still parents. But i also want to be friends with my kids. Yeah yeah because that's fun it is it's so rewarding and it's neat. I think probably the final thing i will say on. Is it worth it. It's worth it because we can adapt and we can adjust. There are different seasons in life. You know maybe you're in a season where you've got an elderly parents who needs care or you're pregnant and you need some rest. You can adjust your schedule. You can adjust the amount of work if your child's doing well in math you can even you can skip checkers. You can do every odd. Odds are even at their so much flexibility. So it's worth it because you can tailor this education lifestyle to your family's unique dynamics and needs in the season that you're in yet. I love that. Yeah amen that such an encouragement. I love your encouragement. And i'm so grateful for it What would be the last thing if you had one last piece of advice or wisdom that you could leave with the moms and dads listening today. What would you say to them. Well this is always my advice and enjoy your kids him in the i smile at them. It'll minister life to them but it will help you if you are struggling in any way. There's just something about that active. I'd like you. I love you but choosing to enjoy them. Life is messy. Things are not easy in perfect clean and it's never like a homes better homes and gardens magazine hate by his messy. Your house is messy. It shouldn't be like there's things we can do to maintain but when things are challenging we can still choose to enjoy and it makes the really fun seasons all the more fun. Because we've already you know enjoyed one another. I think there's it's a gift to have children. Yes and it is a blessing. And i think we need to look at our kids that way that they are a gift and a blessing joy from the lord. And it's a choice whether to be irritated by their needs their mess their attitude whatever or to choose to enjoy them for who they are and i think there's something about speaking life and drawing the best out of people that that just makes them blossom and what a gift as a mom or a debt to get to help our kids to shine. Yeah amen well thank you. That is a fantastic tight. Us all up with one. Big pretty bo Nancy thank you for all that you've done. Thank you for encouraging me. And so many others along the way you are truly a blessing to thanks for having me. This certainly yeah absolutely. Thank you guys again for listening. You are join a blessing to us and we like you. We don't just love you guys but as well so go to. Steve demi quotes steve. Demi says tell your kids that you like that that you love them. Oh that's nice. Well thanks steve. Emmy for that. He's a wise man. Oh you know what it is is that god likes not just loves you and then that his parents that's right that's right he does. He does like us.

"There's no right curriculum Curriculum is a tool and resources are tools that you use and you know each kid is going to be different like you said about you know if the teacher manual comes in there's twenty pages not only. Do you need to find something that works well for your children. You need to find something that works well for you because you have to be teaching it right and so all the research into choosing a curriculum and then recognizing okay. We either need to push through or we need to change direction. Because sometimes it's just not a good fit and you're making everybody's miserable. And sometimes it's where overcoming our flesh in we need to persevere so that's where it kind of gives you some direction. yeah. I love that that too. We actually just had that happened just in the last week. my daughter was really struggling with one in. It's not that she was struggling with how to do. The curriculum really didn't like it. It was one that i really wanted her to like. Because i really liked it. But she just was like mom. I i just. I hate this curriculum and i don't want to learn this subject to this way and so i had to say okay. You know what. Let's let's look at this again. Let's rethink this. And i i happen because because god is good and he is faithful. I had another curriculum. That had been given to me is brand new That had been given to me years ago. I mean like three or four years ago. That's just been sitting on my shelf. And i said you know i have another one that i mean. Let's just look at this one and she's like well. I like this one and In so i didn't feel like we were completely giving up on it. You know but at the same time. I mean the girl was sitting there just like this is the most boring things whole wide world. I hate this. And i don't want her to dread learning. I want her to love learning. So so it's true. Not every curriculum is perfect for every family. Now it's okay to have some trial and error to me. I think it's important to expect that. There's going to be some trial and error. And that's a thing where i think it's really important that you have good conversations with your husband. If you're you know the mom where if there was stress. I felt fearful that i made the wrong decision and i spent hundreds of dollars a curriculum and it is not working. It's making us all miserable. And now i have to go to my husband. And he's going to say no you know i think there is. There's things to overcome their to important to get dad on board with the vision for the long haul for why we're doing this because then it it isn't just about the dollar signs. It's about the oh. This is a tool in. My wife needs to help. Teach our children right And so navigating that that is a difficult thing sometimes But it's really important. Yeah yeah a. And i do like that. You talk about persevering through it because sometimes we have to do that. We don't like it's it's life you know we. We have veterans through not motivation. I mean we're not naturally inclined unless you are super passionate about something but not a lot of eight or ten or twelve year olds are gonna be like wait to do whatever you know right. Some are and those are really fun to teach but still have to teach the ones that are like. I don't wanna do anything today. Okay what we're still going to do it right right. Yeah and it can be expanded. It can be an expensive lesson like you said to cost a lot of money things that were invest ourselves in their rewarding. But you know another when you think about homeschooling. I think most people do not quit homeschooling because teaching their kids was hard. I think people quit homeschooling because homeschooling plus dinner and long and work and church and volunteering and outside activities and making sure that you know the floor swept and mopped once a week or something keeping up on life and home schooling can be overwhelming and so my biggest thing was getting the kids involved like we all live here. I'm not doing all the work. So grab a broom. Let's go out but just that teamwork can help. But i think there is definitely a price there where you're juggling a lot more. Yeah home. Schooling is a fulltime job and it requires attention and dedication but all the other things still need to be done to right right. So are you saying that you mop sweep your floors once a week. Is that a thing. I'm saying that when my fits were little but now i have no small people here. We go week. But no i mean that would be a nightly thing i know every week. I'm lucky if we mop our floors like once a month. Oh that's funny. But when i watched we do video calls with our daughter and grandchildren several nights a week. And it's always fun because my son in law's job at night is he gets the kitchen back in order so he's always twittering the kitchen While we're talking and you know. I like the nightly chores and things that help you be ready for the next day. That's funny some things have to go though if you did sweep daily before but you have to get some sleep and homeschool and all the things. Sometimes you just have to let some things go a little bit longer. Yes okay yes you do whatever you can tolerate so yeah. It's a grand day when the kids are old enough to be able to help with dishes. And i mean i remember when my youngest was finally able to reach the sink in order to help mode. The dishwasher was like raleigh. I mean this is like the greatest. Ever i tell my brian. That's why we have you so that you can do all the chores for me feel like that. I know i know i know. Because we funny slave away and clean their bedrooms and bathrooms and things like that. I mean oh my goodness gracious. So we're out of time again. We are going to be back again tomorrow and we are going to continue this conversation. We're going to give some great hope. And how you can succeed In in homeschooling and paying the price that home schooling cost. And then we're just gonna talk about is is it worth. It is all of this sacrifice. Is it even worth it in the end and nancy. I love that you've you graduated your girls already And so you get to talk about it from that end you know. We're we're still in the thick of it right now. And so i i need moms like you go before me and just say it's gonna be worth it. It's going to be worth it so we're gonna talk about that more tomorrow. Nancy thank you again for joining me today. People can find out more about you at nancy. Manno dot com. It's an nc y. M. a. n. s. dot com and. We will put that link in the show notes. Thank you so much for joining me again today.

"Hampton. Welcome back to the schoolhouse. Oct- podcast thank you so much for joining me again today and again as always. I have great guests on with me. Nancy manno. She is such a sweet friend of mine. Nancy and i met. I don't know nancy was a couple years ago. maybe two or three years ago That we met at a. I don't know where did we meet at the da conference. Oh yeah that's exactly where yes. Oh yes that is where we met for the first time so this was kind of funny we. I went to the hsl da conference and on that friday night. I think it was. Everybody was going on a field trip to the museum of the bible. And i stayed back. I had not been filling while that week. And i stayed back then. I messaged on facebook and said hey. Are there any other ladies. Who are who stayed at the hotel and yourself and tear bentley had stayed back as well and so we got together for dinner that night. That was the first time i met you and it was amazing. It was it was friendship at first sight. Absolutely was yes so much fun getting to know you so. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks for having me. Of course we've been trying to get you on this podcast for a while now. A few months we've been chatting. Yes i know. I know work. I'm so glad that you're with me introduce our listeners. To your family while i am graduated homeschool mom of two And a grandma to to my grand boys are now too and five which is parenting is amazing. Grand parenting is next level stuff and so we home school dr girls from preschool through high school. They graduated in two thousand ten and two thousand eleven and our oldest daughter. Olivia and her husband are living in northern california and working for a ministry up there and we just had such a really neat experience homeschooling. We met a family when my kids were like one in three twenty months apart and there was something really amazing about this family that i it was just unusual because kids weren't respectful and they liked being with their parents and there was just something interesting about them. I liked their family dynamic and as we got to know them we caught the vision for family relationship and family discipleship and what home schooling could be that. It wasn't just teaching academics. Although that's a huge part of it but it really was the relationship and it was the best. I don't know sixteen years. Fifteen sixteen years of my life. We all the way through twelfth grade. So yeah and you most recently have served on. The board of athy is which stands for arizona you on a families for home education so in two thousand four james and i my husband james and i were invited to serve on the board of asi board members and so we served for thirteen years together and then i was hired as the executive director and i retired last april from You know those kind of serving. But i still am passionate about the home school community and i write about homeschooling on my blog and things like that. So yeah the yeah. It was a joy to serve at the statewide level. I ran the homeschool convention for eight years and This really so neat. The community of people in each state of families that are teaching their kids at home. Yes yeah it is. We have had the privilege of meeting so many board members across the nation who served on home school. We've had many of them of course on the podcast with us. We recently has an tyler on the podcast and it's just so neat to hear the stories in the reasons behind. Why so many of you have chosen to do that. And it's just one way that people can be involved in serving the lord and serving him through the home school community but it really is kind of one one big happy family. I mean really it. The the home school community across the nation as scattered as it seems. I should say the christian homeschool community across yes as scattered as it seems for the most part people are very like they really have a passion for family discipleship for relationships. Like you talk about with your children and four just that burden of having our kids home with us and being able to teach them our values and The things that the lord has in our the lord has entrusted our children to us and so the things that he puts on our heart to be able to teach to them It's it's really an amazing group of people. So i am so grateful for the years that you have served in gone before me and and others and been that titus two women today. It's so funny. As i was thinking through what we would talk about today and i. We've told us to our audience before a lot of times when we have people come on the podcast who are speakers at conventions and things like that. You all have kind of a list of different topics that you can talk about. And so i was looking to your topics. And i really struggled. I was like i don't know which one you choose. Because there are so many good ones and so two of them jumped out at me and we're going to actually have one on twice but the first one that jumped out at me was called. The price is right. And i'll tell you why. Because did you know that. I was a contestant on the prices rate. No way yeah. Isn't that funny. Yeah it is so well because you know we're from los angeles and that's right so when brooklyn as about a you. She was almost a year old and it was maybe a month before she turned a year old. This was this kinda date her. I guess a little bit. This is back in. Bob barker was still the hardest. I know it seems like forever ago. But i was part of the mops group at our church that we're attending and so our mops group went to the price is right and we all had on these hot pink t mops t-shirts and you know typically when they choose someone from a big group. It's the one person who has been kind of who kind of sets themselves apart. I had like studied this. I had figured. Actually this was my third or fourth time. Going to the shaping up prices right because it was not that far from us. I mean it was only like an hour from where we lived so i've been other times with friends and family and stuff and i kind of figured out there formula of how they choose people and so you know not that there's any guarantee but what i did was i got his big button. I mean it was huge of brooklyn's face as baby because was really cute baby. She's still a really cute girl but she was an adorable baby. And take out this big button. And i put it right on the front of my shirt and then my mother-in-law the story gets better. My mother-in-law had been a contestant on the price is right when really my husband. I know right. I like a or two years old and so i don't know if you even know how the process okay. This podcast is not about the price straight but anyway they kind of tended time and the director sits in a director's chair and he's got you know two people standing on either side of him and then like you just go down the row ten at a time and you have literally like thirty seconds to sell yourself and so i remember i i had my button on and i said my mother-in-law was a contestant on the price is right i guess that would have been you know thirty something years ago. I really want to carry on the family tradition. And that's what got me on the show so you love it. I will say my disclaimers. I did not actually get on stage so i i was the second to the last one called. It was the hampton. Come on down here. The next contestant on the price.

"Yeah sure so. The best way to stand out is to actually like a like a like be attentive. Today audiences behavior for example now during the kobe the pandemic you know many companies as you so that started posting content about what to do during the lockdown at this stuff so actually that smart. Because you know you don't have always to talk about your product even no matter what you sell always talk about the customer's problems and then engage with them and build that relationship and dennis start talking about your product. So one of the things. I'm doing currently for my client is no matter. What productivity sale. I always for the first like for the first phase of my content. I always talk about the some different stuff which might not be related to their products. But it would it would like attract the the right type of audience to their page or brand which might buy from them in the future and for example for some of the brands we do some funny memes for example which attracts the right type of audience for them. So for example if we are sending a fashion product Let's say we do a funny memes about fashion. So only people who are interested in fashion products would understand those memes and engage with it and in this way like with directed more people to the page brandt but we didn't sell them anything yet and in the second stage will start like introducing them our brand or talking about our features and products. So yeah i think everyone is talking about their products but no one is like producing engaging content. I'm talking about brands specifically so no one is like producing content. Which is like a talking to. The audience is problems on what they face in their daily lives. Everyone is busy talking about their own products yet. Easy to be product focused. Because we're all desperate to attract the attention of potential prospects and released dr to deliver value in terms of how they may be able to help them. That's really great insight. I do want to ask you about. I do want ask you what. It's been like to run an agency this year. And how your house. It's been different to work with clients and vice versa. But maybe we could start by giving me explanation of what your agency does. Yeah so currently. We work with e commerce businesses and we have some a personal brands that we were quite merely provide facebook advertising services to help those brands generate.

"And it's not. It's not a social media platform. That's why i think like it won't be convenient for people toward such videos on youtube especially like now like many platforms are doing that. Including tiktok was the first one on. instagram launched. Its real now youtube and maybe we can see the future more companies doing it. I think so. It's not something different in my personal opinion it. It might work. But i think it won't find that he will success but again. No the things i wanted to talk to you about when it comes to video is video on linked thin you and i are people like publishing taxed. I do. I do some videos. I just don't find that. They get the same engagement of when i when i do. The mon- lincoln take about videos on linked in a lot of people. Do them really. Well like some marker like chris walker. Are they effective. And if so what kind of videos should people be doing on lincoln. Yeah it's definitely effective and you know like the engagement. You are getting on video of for me. It's more quality engagement than text. Let me tell you why because when you are thinking like a new dashboard that let's say five hundred people are watching your videos. They actually was it. They spent time on it. But when you for example Written takes might get two thousand read johnny. But it doesn't mean that those thousand people spend the time like they spent. What your videos. I mean like Reading your texts might take from them. Maybe one or not even one minutes. Your videos might be three minutes for minutes. If they are actually continuing gorth with anti they are completing. It means like you are filtering your audience. You are getting more quality traffic from video. So if you ever corporal action at the end of your video and call to action at the end of your written text and you'll get traffic from both those pieces of content. The traffic you would get from videos. I think it's more equality traffic than the one you will get from written because actually those people spent more time with the new and the same way like for example. Everyone tells the ordinance you get from. Podcasting are more high-quality for the because those people are loyalty and they are spending more time listening to you so the video works for sure definitely but again. He doesn't work for everyone. So if you are good at it of course do it if you are not so good at it in you might find like your best format for example you might photos. You might do audio written texts or something else. So while we're going down the lincoln rabbit hole the other thing that i wanna talk to you about his lincoln story so i used them very much. Though last week. I did a little bit of experimentation to see what kind of engagement i could get and to be honest with you. It was at best minimal. Maybe i got on one. Post may have got twenty five views. But i didn't see the r..
Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling
"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand. If you look at the emotions on the outside when we go Talk to people who do this kind of thing's Ah, Professor. There is a video I have seen
Orchid expert Dr Manos Kanellos answers a Dendrobium question
"It's time for question of the week and this one comes from Gaskin who has an issue with dendrobium orchid skin rights. I got it a couple of years ago and it's been a joy flowering profusely for the first eighteen months. He's also doubled in size when it arrived it had a few stumps which made me think you'd have been divided or cutback with my kids. I know to Prune flowering stems back to the next node after flowering wanted. My danger need something similar and should I be dividing those rooting branche. Let's at the base. I am no dendrobium experts so I called on somebody who is to answer this question. Manosque ANALYSIS IS THE CO author of book growing orchids at home along with another orchid expert. Peter White so he was just the person meads speak to thankfully Manas was on hand to answer all Gaskins dendrobium queries. And then some are GonNa see three questions here. The basically the dribble what we're looking at is the drug of nobility which is native to Southeast East Asia and it is often referred as a cool growing in boom which is not doesn't do doctors in that it doesn't really need cool temperatures. But it's kind of spacey kind of special because it is one of the few calm only sold or kids that has a distinct growing unrest phase. It's going phase starts when you see buds on the gains in the rest phase stotts when the new gains have reached almost the height of the old canes their best boat late spring about. Now it's arrest and growing phase coincides with them with the nobody with a here now so I can see city questions that need to be honest from from paragraph. So the first question is what these stumps these dumps. In fact cut of games. The plant didn't need a one that say these case cut off but grow did cut them off so the blunt looks prettier for somebody to bite. Which these second question do you need to cut off the gains of the end of the Florence. No because they are used as reservoirs for nutrients and would that feed the new cades when the plan does need these old gains it will become crinkly yellow and then you can cut them off. It's not like offices which is unique in that. It Kennedy Flower on the same stem. These a flower. Normally it would just stop a move to the new gains but as they do not got the old game. I think this is where I've fallen down with this plant in the past because I in my ignorance of this plot have have cut off those stems before they sent me before they've gone completely yellow and Brinkley and as a result I've I was doing the right thing but obviously I wasn't and you end up with kind of an unbalanced ugly looking plan as well grow can do this because in the nursery does that. He's doing just before shows blunt. But he's doing it because in in your house you have perfect. Conditions was at home. The blood is not in ideal conditions. Most of the time so taking away it's Bui- Wa Shales nutrients in what is it. Makes it much more difficult for it to show? Its best left of left on the left with the plan until the plan tells you does need. I'm I guess this is. Why if you grow a few follow ups all kids you have to understand that the dendrobium Zarb different because that flowering style is quite different. They don't fly off from the same in the same way. Do they? Sort of flying from the side of the stag with a very short flowering stem as opposed to that long one get. We found offices years. There is different than two or three ways from other orchids. And as soon as you realize that most of the darkest got two or three significant but as if you only differences than the very to grow one is you know one or two key things. The key for this one is an interest and a glowing period joining address. You keep it cool in cool bright dry conditions Jewish growing face you know what orchid the key to eight was you do this L. Thrive. It's not difficult to grow at home now. The third question w dividing the Bronx leads at the bottom and a difficult one to answer. It's basically that says yes. No these orchid if it's not given a proper rest videoed develop not bronze. Let's they're called chi-chi's new plantlets on the canes if it does so these are best sprayed with some water will. Miss missed it and win the have enough road full five a couple of inches in length either be snapped off and then all put together in small report and you have a new plan but on this case in this picture this is not. Lebron's lead it doesn't look like a is. It just looked looks like a new cane. Orchid looks that it could do with reporting and now it is that I tend to report it all the way until the end of June. So it is best reported in a weaponry party is good to take a little bit of also dog from the bottom of the boat and boot the audit into its new book which should be only slightly bigger a little bit deeper. These huge go into into the bar. So if you really really wanted you cool take that bit off. But it's risky and you have to ask why the best thing is to be less with planned so you end up with a big stronger thriving blunt and what is the best mix to use with the dendrobium is it just like kind. Classic orchid bog just simply bought a don't balk based or anything called compost. You Know Eh isn't a very and you do. Not because they have long games a lot of people feel they need to put him in a big. But the problem with this is that it's not easy to keep it on the very dry Jimmy. It's rest period. So if need be for weight you could put a couple of Februaries in the but the best to just every time you just slightly at the best the next size up in terms of thought so the nets sized book on. I know that I say it. It looks a little bit too big for its board. But that's what it needs to do to do and say just balk which will enable enabled the grower to keep it on the on the dry side during rest field watering these kids. I mean is there any special requirements? Here judy is growing face You what you keep it moist but not overly wet. You can use hardwood that it's easy but it's good at least from time to time to use a rainwater always luke warm temperatures and it was. The new. Gains was the end of the season growing cheese on Wednesday new case of the the height. Alsi availed gains than you. Keep it on the dry side very little water from time to time with Chevy Mistake. So doesn't get bone dry and deal. You see a new buds appearing on the new gains. The new gains also good to be stoked will be supported otherwise can just fold over all or the garden grow. Not Straight okay. That makes sense. Well that's helped me. Also because I've I've got a couple of little Katie's or might dendrobium which I have. I have to say already removed without really checking what I was supposedly but removed them and they were glass of water in the minutes. Must pop those up there quite small but they have got decent read some them so they can just go into one newport with market bark and hopefully they'll go next year with the oxy skype is is you can just snap them off the gain of the boom rather than a cover to cut off a little bit of this time as you have to do with the with the front office and then. Yes dorothy three together with them on on a very small against the Mita in Bach and and not too much watering at the START STUCCO FLEETS. And then you'll have a and what about this worry that people have the they're all kids in see through. Pulse is not true because I can't seem to come from the nursery and report to. We need to look for seats. Report Oral Paik once. Okay very good question. A book is good because you see the system village focusing the size especially Clear all else equal is a good thing. I clear poured for not only for August for plotted plants as well because I can see the roots but it is not necessary to grow or what is essential in a boat. The guarding orchids is that it has good. Greenwich has blend your host closer to drain or kids especially for an obvious need to drain and dry well. Between what the other thing. Also which is the secret is easy. Key is don't even have a dome even clear participation it the Dome it is definitely made for orchids because no The plan needs that kind of special boot so there are clear thoughts in the market. Which frankly not really good for you. Because they don't have good Greenwich as long as the pot has very good grant. A lot of big holes at the bottom is good for orchids. The all clear is better because you also she system in the roots This House is when you say talk about the Dome is the Boston. Part isn't flat. It's got a raise section which presumably is increasing surface area for more act coming in the menu holes at the bottom of the foot. Give it good drellich than dome is mostly for Asia. The center of the if you think about it is basically a niche may be a neat and a half from the what whereas in innumerable port. It's still possible to have inches away from
Coronavirus And Parenting: What You Need To Know Now
"We're going to talk with you about really the only thing that Anya and I have been talking about for the last two weeks Colona virus. Obviously that's what everyone has been talking about so this is going to be a special life kit parenting episode about how to talk with young kids about corona virus. How to deal with school closures may be. Your school is closed. Or maybe it isn't and you're worried about why it isn't We're also GONNA talk about some screen time strategies if your kids are home and most importantly how to keep our kids healthy and because we're education reporters. We are in the privileged position of talking to experts about this. And so we thought that we would come to you our life kit listeners and pulled together everything that is a potentially useful so here we go take away number one. We'RE GONNA start super basic here is. We've said this two weeks ago we're GONNA say it again. Your kids need to understand. Not only that. It is important to wash their hands but really show them how to wash their hands. Well make sure they take twenty seconds. Make sure they use soap and you know have him sing a song in their heads. Whatever it is whatever it takes. This is seriously one of the most powerful things that you end. They can do to protect not only themselves but all of us right so when they wash their hair. They've washed their hands when they come in from outside before eating and then coming along with that so I spoke to a friend of Mine Kavita. And she is the MOM. Actually of immuno-compromised kid. He's three years old and he's doing pretty well but he had it. He's had a stem cell transplant in the past so they are really really re used to all this stuff as a family. And here's some of this. She told me as soon as we walk inside. We just wash our hands for a good thirty seconds to a minute. Do you listen. We use lotion. Because the handwashing can really cause your skin to crack we aquaphor and things that we might not think of Don't forget to clip your fingernails. Every other day keep them short because the virus hides under there and we've heard this thing to stop touching your face rate. It's very hard for me. I will fully admit I caught myself on the metro this morning. Touch and Manos right so I do it. I know it was really alarming. Sorry so so. A couple of tips one is. I painted my toddler's face yesterday. And she had touched it so many times within like five minutes. I think it was actually a pretty good reminder for US still spitballing on that all right moving on to take away number two. When we're talking about corona virus it is really important to give them facts and be reassuring. Yup Don't make promises though that you cannot keep right so the big thing that comes to mind for me is any parents first reaction when a child has am I gonNA get Corona virus is GonNa be no of course not no. Don't be silly. Don't say that because you don't know that that is not a promise that you can keep and so instead these recommendations come directly from the CDC talk about what Cove Nineteen looks and feels like say you know. It can feel kind of like a flu. People can get a fever or cough. The might have a hard time breathing. You can be reassuring that only a small group of people really who get it actually have more serious problems and we also know from what doctors have seen so far. That kids don't seem to be getting very sick. Yeah that's a huge. I think for kids to to listen to you into here. Is that very very few? Kids have gotten sick. Yeah absolutely and on your one. More thing Just because I don't think we can say this enough in every episode that we do for parents and kids is always double down on the fact that there are helpers out there there are always home whether you get sick with Cova nineteen or flu or you fall off your bicycle and break your arm. They're going to be folks out. There will help you get through this yup totally you know. We have a whole life episode on talking to kids about scary stuff in the news. But just in a thirty second recap Ask what they have heard what what rumors they may have. Come across. Ask other feeling. Make sure that you check in and limit the flow of information in your house and honestly this really goes for parents to you know no screens in the bedroom at night Don't play the news all day. We all need to take a lot of breaks from what's coming in at US absolutely so. Arteta number three is that we should all try to reduce any stigma or misinformation phobia around this virus. You may have heard politicians talking about the Chinese corona virus. You know it's been kicking around. It's very important especially when you talk to school leaders. Educators social workers. It's very important when talking with kids especially about this outbreak that we don't try to assign blame Because this disease affects all of us and we all need to help protect each other our takeaway number four is about closing schools. And Cory's been reporting on this. It's really complicated decision. Yeah I think we're really just at the beginning of a wave of closures and there are a couple of things that I really want parents to understand. I know there's been a lot of clamor from parents to close schools now And there is research on you and I both know this. There is research out there that says that closing schools proactively doing it early Does help slow? The spread of disease it is effective But the thing I want parents to understand is there are very real public. Health concerns and risks that come with closing the school so think about it in this country. We have nearly thirty million kids. Who depend on schools for free or reduced price breakfast lunch sometimes even dinner yet and we have a million and a half kids sadly they don't have stable housing so I guess the the take homes here are just to know. This is a very complicated decision. Obviously authorities or making it Understand the pressure that they're under and figure out ways that we as communities from can pull together and help the kids that are needier in our communities when it comes to this and I've already heard of really creative thoughts around that Sort of extending meal distribution and communities for example so so we shall be on the lookout for ways to help anything
Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike
"Year is nineteen sixty five. The Vietnam War is escalating. I have today ordered. Tha Nam the Air Mobile Division and certain other footage which will raise our fighting strength from seventy five thousand one hundred and twenty five thousand men almost immediately X. is assassinated Jeff Van. The gunfire went off and his hand was up. I remember turned around and the next thing I saw smell come falling back in the jet. Martin Luther King Junior leads a series of civil rights marches in Selma Alabama. They I want to say to the state of Alabama. Just want to say to the people as a matter of and the nations of the world that we are not about turnaround. We own the move. Now yes we on the move and Norway racism the Bannon and in California farmworkers faced with racial discrimination and economic hardship organizing for their rights as workers. And as okay so quick recap on the history of farm workers on the West Coast and specifically California. Immigrants had been exploited as cheap farm labor for years. I Chinese Japanese migrants then Filipino. Nationals arrived in the nineteen twenties. Mexicans became a large part of the farm labor force around time but also just poor folks of all backgrounds looking for work. Black White Brown were exploited. They lived in shabby wooden houses near the fields. They worked for hours under the Sun. Some even lived in former concentration camps which house Japanese Americans during their internment in World War. Two since they first started coming over in the nineteen twenties Filipino. Farmworkers had tried negotiating for better working conditions and wages with their bosses. Usually white guys called growers beheld. Strikes started organizations and unions. They were often met with violence. Or they'd lose their jobs. Gore's were higher other ethnic groups. Instead scabs to their strikes like the immigrants who came before them Filipinos were thought of as hard workers who were obedient easy to control but they were also militant having lived through years of race. Riots shootouts violent. Confrontations with police growers SCABS. It wasn't uncommon for Filipinos to draw knives on the picket line. Larry it Leon came up in this old school. Militant tradition of striking labor organizing and by the nineteen sixties. He was a leader of a union that represented farmworkers call the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee. A Walk which was supported by a larger union the AFL CIO. Larry worked the likes of Mexican American activists. Dolores Huerta and Filipino. American organizers Philip Aracruz. Who called Larry the most powerful Filipino leader in a walk? He had the most experience. I mean he'd been in a lot of strikes you know and he was the head of a walk at the time this. Miriam Powell a journalist and historian who spent almost a decade writing books and articles about another famous Labor leader Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers which we'll get to in a bit in terms of the nuts and bolts like being a Labor leader running a union. Larry was the guy absolutely. That's where story picks back up as a union organizer and leader one of Larry's jobs is to visit farms in the Central Valley to recruit. New members moves his family to Delano. Where he the mostly Filipino. Workers in May nineteen sixty five opportunity knocks in nearby. Coachella valley where there are also Filipino. Workers who need help. Here's Patrick again. As older Larry. Here's some workers did a dollar forty in our Filipinos are getting a dollar twenty five an hour. Now that don't make sense to me. It's time to strike okay so to strike meant. The workers would stop working until their employers. The growers listen to the demands but striking farmworkers wasn't going to be easy they were going against big agricultural business agribusiness. The man agribusiness was the most powerful industry in California at that time. Million Powell again arm workers were really the poorest people who also had no protection all of this sort of existing health safety and labor laws that applied to other professions. Do not apply to farm workers could be fired at will. They be made to work any kinds of hours or no restrictions no health or safety requirements so for them to take on this enormously powerful industry a was a huge talent when the farmworkers decide to go on strike in the Coachella Valley. They don't go to the fields to work. Instead we pick it in demand for better wages. They held up signs march. Saying chant confront the growers. They don't get paid and some workers are even arrested. But in ten days the growers give in the workers get their fifteen cent raise. Let's pick these grapes. After the harvest Larry in the farmer workers head north to the next job the grape fields of Delano. Where they hope to get the same rates but the growers refused to give the farmworkers meeting a community. Space might remember called Filipino Hall. Let's do this. Delano has a thriving Filipino community with lots of farm workers and members of eight walk so they actually establish a Filipino Hall. And at this meeting it is packed. It's mostly Filipinos but there are also some members who aren't the Black Puerto Rican Mexican even white their backgrounds different. But they all have one thing in common. You've suffered enough under the growers and they want real change now. Really neither raised by public actress on this anymore. We are getting any younger. We need better wages and union today. Dude these courses suck breezing my us of here. Larry and the other union leaders here the farm workers but understandably they have concerns if we strike. You might lose your house. You might lose your car. Your family might be on the streets. Hungary. It's going to be tough. Are you sure you want this farm? Workers decide to vote on whether or not they should go on strike back. My name is John Arlington born and raised here in Delano in present day Filipino Hall. I talked to John Arlington. Whose Father Mariano Lila Farmington also known as Bob was a Filipino immigrant and Delano farmworker. He was in Filipino Hall. That Fateful Day my dad and our family were part of a long agriculture workers organizing committee and with Larry. And Leon Philip the Veracruz People Osco and so many others were here in this hall. I'm talking to you now. In September seventh nineteen sixty five where we had a day long second meeting about the strike. And when Larry asked if anyone could make a motion regarding strike my father stood and made the motion to begin the great strike that started in Delano. Bob's made the motion to go on. Strike those in favor of the strike. Stand up and raise your hands high. Okay so what the heck everyone standing up. We're going on a strike you crazy. Bill Pinos Next Day September eighth nineteen sixty five the farmworkers show up at the grape vineyards ready for work according to the documentary Delano Manos by Marissa. Arroyo just like any other day at work. The farmer workers started picking Ripe Grapes on the vines. Then they'd set them down on the ground they move onto the next Bein. Fake Red Grapes. Set them down. Here's a clip from the film with organizer United Farmworkers Vice President. Pete Velasco we pick the ripe grapes and trim it and then move onto the next by under the same thing at moon. Our there are a lot of big grapes under that is when about the thousand five hundred. Pretty Pianos went on strike against the grape growers in
