‘Social and Emotional Learning’ Programs Are No Substitute for Mothers.

Just as critical race theory and other leftist propaganda were injected into classrooms disguised as harmless curriculum, it is becoming clear that “social and emotional learning”—which claims to equip children with the ability to manage emotions, feel empathy for others, and maintain positive relationships—is being used to push a collectivist and social justice-laden agenda.

But what if there were no nefarious agenda propelling the social and emotional learning movement? Is school-based social and emotional instruction the best way to nurture social and emotional wellness in children? Some programs have reported helpful outcomes. But is there an even better, more effective way to foster social and emotional wellness in children, and therefore in society at large?

Yes. It is this: Let children be raised and taught principally by their mothers and fathers while they are very young.

The new Cuban legislation on the family is ‘harmful for families and the nation’.

When we analyse the Code, we find things that are harmful for families, for marriages, for children.

The most harmful aspect is the wrongly named homosexual marriage. Trying to recognise two people of the same sex as a marriage is, in our opinion, wrong, because marriage is meant for procreation, which guarantees the generational change in society.

There was already a majority of voters in the referendum on the constitutional reform who expressed their disagreement with same-sex marriage.

We want to maintain the current Code, that marriage is between a man and a woman.

The majority do not agree either with removing the term “parental authority” and replacing it with “parental responsibility”. Read more

Taming the Smartphone ‘Beast’ in Marriage.

Our growing affection for our smartphones—has made maintaining connection in marriage challenging. The smartphone has become such a presence in our lives that we can forget it is a relatively recent phenomenon. According to the Pew Research Center, in 2011, just 35% of Americans owned a smartphone—today that number is 85%.

Meanwhile, the number of hours we spend on our phones is growing. The digital marketing research firm eMarketer found the average person spent almost four hours a day on their phone in 2021—up from 2.5 hours a day in 2014. This growing smartphone use is only adding to the strains on our marriages. Read more


Ah! The glorious wedding day.

But that one 24‐hour period (no matter how spectacular it may be) is just the beginning of a lifetime commitment — one that involves your spouse and his or her entire family. When we marry, we not only become connected with the love of our lives, we join our lives with in-laws — near strangers we will call family. Read more

Parenting/Parental Rights

Peru passes bill supporting parents’ rights in education.

The Peruvian Congress on Thursday passed Bill 904, which supports the right of parents to educate their children according to their values and principles. Read more


America’s modern public school system is based on the children’s rights model, where state experts claim to know what is best for children in the coming social order. Horace Mann, a founder of the American public school system, stated this with admirable clarity: “We who are engaged in the sacred cause of education are entitled to look upon all parents as having given hostages to our cause.” John Dewey shared the sentiment a generation later, seeing schools as “active and militant participants in creation of a new social order.” Failed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe confirmed this hostility to parental rights when he told voters: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Read more

New Biden Title IX Order Will Help Schools Push Transgenderism On Your Kids Behind Your Back.

The Biden administration is set to issue a new interpretation of Title IX that embraces transgender ideology, going even further than President Obama did. The new rule will redefine “sex” under Title IX to include “gender identity.” This is not only contrary to what Congress clearly intended, it will also harm children and violate parental rights. Read more

Sanctity of Life

EU trying to force Poland and Hungary to perform abortions for Ukrainian refugees.

The European Union parliament voted that all countries within the union should perform abortions on Ukrainian refugees, even the largely pro-life countries of Hungary and Poland.

The report promulgates anti-Christian and anti-religious sentiment under the justification that many religions are discriminatory against “women” and homosexuals through their condemnation of abortion and so-called homosexual “rights.”

The report also stated that religion is “an important driver of conflict worldwide,” while focusing heavily on the “rights” of atheists and the non-religious while ignoring the massive persecution of Christians that occurs in the Middle East, Africa, and elsewhere. Read more

Why Today’s Left Is Willing To Admit Abortion Kills A Child And Still Support It.

Selfishness isn’t unique to our moment, but it does manifest today in a particularly straightforward way. If we believe the highest telos of our existence is self-discovery, our lives cease to serve any higher purpose than ourselves.

It makes sense, then, that our culture would glorify abortion because, by that paradigm, killing an inconvenient baby is a means to self-empowerment. If eugenicist abortionists pushed to kill off babies for the “good” of society a century ago, now they purport to do so for the “good” of the individual woman. Read more

UN Exploits Climate Change Concerns to Push Contraception, Population Control.

most people agree we should be good stewards of the environment.

But if you look closely, you’ll find that, at the U.N., protecting the Earth often provides cover for unseemly causes like abortion and population control. These hide in phrases like “meeting the unmet need for family planning.” In the global arena, “comprehensive sexuality education,” contraception, “safe abortion care,” and maternal health all fall under the umbrella of sexual and reproductive health rights. Read more


European Parliament passes “hostile” report on persecuted religious minorities.

Last week the European Parliament adopted a report on “The persecution of minorities on the grounds of belief or religion”. Human rights experts have denounced the report as “openly hostile towards religion”. While the initial draft of the report referred to religion as a “human right” and “often a last bastion of liberty” in society, the adopted report describes religion as a threat to a free society by criticizing it as “an important driver of conflict worldwide.” Read more

Why is Afghanistan No. 1 on the 2022 Watch List?

North Korea has been No. 1 for 20 years, so why aren’t they at the top again? Have things gotten better in North Korea? Sadly, the answer is “no.” North Korea has lost the top spot, not because their level of persecution against Christians has gone down. It’s actually gone up.

North Korea is only No. 2 because the level of persecution against Christians in Afghanistan has drastically shot up, particularly after the Taliban took over the country’s leadership in August 2021. Read more

Tucker Carlson: Pro-abortion violence motivated by ‘displacing God’ and ‘undermining Christianity’.

Carlson opened by referencing a tweet by radical pro-abortion group “Ruth Sent Us,” in which they announced a plan to “be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries.”

Connecting together the sequence of violent protests and acts of vandalism, Carlson suggested that this uncondemned series of events “isn’t actually about Roe” but about “something much darker than that.” Read more


A cloud hangs over trans medicine.

Speaking a few days ago at Texas Christian University, Levine declared: “Gender-affirming care is medical care. It is mental health care. It is suicide prevention care. It improves quality of life, and it saves lives. It is based on decades of study. It is a well-established medical practice.”

However, transgender care is far from being “well-established”, as Admiral Levine must surely know. It might be helpful; it might be transformative; it might be life-saving. It might not. But whatever it is, it is not well-established. In recent months, health authorities in one country after another in Europe have expressed their alarm, citing serious medical and psychological problems amongst people who have received “gender-affirming care”. Read more

GLSEN: An Instrumental Organization Responsible For Infiltrating Schools With LGBT Ideology.

One organization is highly influential in infiltrating private and public schools with LGBT ideology in the form of teacher programming, resources, and research, according to an analysis conducted by a concerned parents organization.

GLSEN — pronounced “glisten” — is the touchpoint between political activism and activism in K-12 public and private schools. The organization is responsible for teacher training, school policy guides, curriculum, and Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) clubs in schools nationwide, according to an analysis from Parents Defending Education. Read more

Detransitioner says Planned Parenthood gave her max dose of male hormones, led to hospitalization.

A formerly trans-identifying woman visited Planned Parenthood when she was 18, and, after about an hourlong appointment costing $200, a nurse practitioner prescribed her a high dosage of testosterone.

Though Kerschner tried to acclimate to identifying as a male by doing things like using the boys’ restroom, she later began to regret her decision. One major factor that made her realize she had made a mistake was the negative side effects she experienced from taking testosterone. Read more
