"How does the internet effect our lives?" on Mormon Mommy Blogs

Hello I recently read this article on 3 Reasons Moms Are Addicted to the Internet. Needless to say I had a million thoughts while I was reading it.

Remembering back to my first baby.... I remember the cultural shock of becoming a SAHM and the learning curve as I learned through trial and error how to fulfill my new roll. I remember when I first joined a support group for women and mothers online. It did almost overtake my life as I drank in the refreshing new support it gave to my life, but over time it found its place into my life in a balanced manner. Since that time I have been in many support groups, hosted many support groups, and started quite a few blogs, not to mention Face Book and Twitter. So is it true? Is the Internet an addiction? I have been turning this over in my mind.

The Internet is a tool I think... After reading that article I went and sat down in my front room and spent time with my kids. But a few hours later when I needed to pay bills, where did I go? Back to the Internet. Later that day when I had an unanswerable question, where did I go? to Google. Now today as I am filling in time between calls as I WAH where do I go? MMB's....

Overall the Internet has been a wonderful tool to my life. Does using a tool allot because it works quantify an addiction? I am thinking no. But like all things there needs to be balance in all things...

I would love to hear what you think.

Introductions on MMB

Hello I am Jeanine. I have been a SAHM for 9 years and a WAHM mom for 7 months. Our family is running like a gazelle Dave Ramsey style in order to pay out of debt, this is why I have started to WAH. My DH also took on a 2nd job. Life around here has gotten a little bit crazy, but I do hope I will someday feel like I have adjusted to the new lifestyle.  

On WAHM

A strange thing happened when I started working at home... I seemed to suddenly have more respect from people in general. Funny how working for a pay check is more of a quantifiable success that others can see, and increases you in their estimation over and above "just" being a SAHM. I am glad to have the added respect, it is refreshing. 

Strange thing is, my kids were better taken care of and more attended to when I did not work. Over all I do feel I accomplished more when I was "just" a SAHM then I do now that I am also juggling WAHM. But that is a nuance an "outsider" would not get. 

Now in life I am trying to learn this new juggling act, prioritise, and learn how to succeed at both being a SAHM and a WAHM.  

On Food Storage

I love whole foods and food storage. I have heard some say that it is an antiquated idea, and have dismissed it my talking about how the presidency has changed many times what they recommend a family to store and how much. I could not disagree more.

Food storage has many benefits, it is more healthy and less expensive just to mention a few. As I wonder about the political climate and future of our country I find these words to be true. "If you are prepared ye shall not fear.

On Getting out of Debt

I have always considered SAHM and Homeschooling to be like an overtime job, so now our family is making the adjustment to both parents working a 2nd job. The most challenging factor is to control spending. As our family works harder we seem to have larger needs, food for example, our food expense has gone up allot since we took on more work. We have to be careful to no "eat away all the profits" literally.

On Homeschooling

Hello I have four children, three lovely girls, one busy boy, ages 9-3. I have always homeschooled from the beginning. When my oldest was young I found it was a joy to homeschool her through preschool. As kindergarten approached I decided I did not want to send her away and miss out on all the fun. Thus our homeschool started. I have an eclectic approach. I love the classics approach and do the majority of my homeschooling through classics, with a focus on the development of character through the ages TJE style. I have tried k-12 but found it to be too cumbersome for more then one child. I like Charllote Mason's focus on hands on, art, and nature. The best way I have ever motivated my children to practice spelling and writing is through making art and cards for family members and friends. We largely homeschool on interest based education in unschooling fashion and this is wonderful for me. With this simple approach we play through homeschooling always on the adventure of learning new things, which works great for my kids that are in core and love of learning phase.

Thanks for reading, 
Jeanine

The Banks Made The Matrix

We are in The Matrix, The Matrix made by the international banks. They power their greed by feeding off of our money. Through engineered economic booms and busts they scoop off our money stealing it right out from under our noses.

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson

We don't need no thought control. Through bank owned media institutions they control our thoughts just like in the Matrix. Nothing that challenges The Matrix is allowed to be reported on by the establishment News. Even worse yet, Public Compulsory Schooling teaches what to think, instead of how to think. Through public school we are taught to be yes men, to stand in line, to follow orders. Essential tools needed if The Matrix is going to control masses of people. Public Compulsory Education was a necessary requirement to pave the way for Hitler.

Read A Wrinkle in Time to see the conditioning I am speaking of, the thought control of the masses.

Man can not serve two masters.  When children spend so much time in school who becomes their master?  The government, the establishmen, not their God fearing, values oriented parents.  The Matrix is raising our nations children.  Break out of The Matrix, think for your self. 

In two hours homeschoolers cover more then the Public School does in a day.  With one on one time children learn wonderfully quick. 

Public school controls our nations home life by sending home ever more demanding after school homework. Why do you think they send homework home? Two reasons, to fill our home time with their busy work so we do not spend it creating family ties, and teaching moral values. And because they know our home is more effective in training and teaching the children then they are. If we actually are the people teaching our children through homework, then what are our children doing while they are at school? 

Our nations  children are being Socially Engineered. No I do not want my children socalised in The Matrix. I want children who learn how to think, rather then be conditioned what to do, like Pavlovs dogs.
