More On - The Challenges We Face

“We are faced with a breakdown of general social order and human values that threatens stability throughout the world. Existing knowledge cannot meet this challenge. Something much deeper is needed, a completely new approach. I am suggesting that the very means by which we try to solve our problems is the problem. The source of our problems is within the structure of thought itself.”

Challenges

Touch the Future began over twenty years ago. The vision was to help parents and those who care about children respond in the best possible way to the dramatic changes in the environment we call childhood, changes that exploded after World War II. We did not have the internet then. Social media and mobile phone-computers did not exist. The dangers that television represented are now compounded many times with ‘screen time’ replacing living, breathing relationships. Technology in the early classroom was just creeping in. Levels of autism, emotionally challenged youth and other pathologies were significantly lower but on the rise. Play deprivation was high with adult organized activities replacing free-range spontaneous play. The impact of hospital-technological birth on mother-infant-father attachment continues. Global warming with the threat of mass global extinction, including homo sapiens was a distant dream.

Quiet Hugs

Morning and Muse often arrive together. Today their light cast long shadows across the wood floor. The house was still. Up before the others I sipped fresh coffee from a white cup. Quietly the glass door to my home-office opened. Carly’s head peeked in, her blond hair looking, as she often does in the morning, like Phyllis Diller’s. She climbed to my lap, reached and sipped a nip of coffee and rested her head on my shoulder. And there we shared a long quiet hug.

Higher number of childhood immunizations resulted in higher rates of infant mortality

I am passionate about this. There are two interrelated issues:

The expressed and unavoidable danger and risks including permanent disability and death inherent in vaccinations…

AND

Every parent’s inalienable right to voluntary informed consent.

If you have not done so please Submit a Formal Public Comment in Opposition to the CDC's Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) for the Control of Communicable Diseases Rule.
Every voice matters.

Dr. Joseph Mercola published a revealing article today on maternal-infant mortality. A few highlight:

My Voice Doesn't Matter

Some argue: “My voice doesn’t matter!” Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-Founder & President of National Vaccine Information Center and I disagree. This is the most serious violation of human rights and civil liberties Barbara has seen in thirty years. “They tried to push through a similar mandate during the Bush Administration. The public outcry was so great they backed down,” said Barbara. “The public does matter but they have been made to believe they don’t.”

I hope every parent is knocked off their chair by the astonishing capacity their child exhibits every day. Recall – 700 new neural connections every second and each branch touches 10,000 to 20,000 other branches. Unbelievable! The environment is the teacher. Life, the senses, relationship and now names (times two) is the curriculum.

There Is No Controversy Over Vaccinations

The issue is Fully Voluntary Informed Consent.

Touch the Future, Kindred and ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) are working with NVIC (The National Vaccine Information Center) to protect the sanctity of our children’s health and our civil liberty. Our goal is a modest 5,000 Public Comments at the CDC each week, 20,000 by Mid-October. I posted my comment today.

Parenting History: Adverse Child Experiences

Maternal neglect has been with us for a long time, officially since 1928 with the publication of John B. Watson’s book Psychological Care of Infant and Child, the most nefarious psychologist of the 20th Century; and the reminder by John Bowlby with his 1951 publication in the WHO Report: Maternal Care and Mental Health, a landmark publication that is tragically ignored to this day.

There is, today, an indifference and hostility to Motherhood that interprets aberrant behavior in children as “normal” and not the consequence of failure of Maternal Care. This reality is illustrated in PARENTING ADVICE. THE WASHINGTON POST  8.18.16

Hormone-Altering Chemicals Part 2

Yesterday I shared an interview with Peat Myers that described: “If you take a little bit of Bisphenol A and put it in corn oil and feed it to a mouse while she’s pregnant, and the amount fed to the mouse is equivalent to two parts per billion of her body weight, that a male mouse in her womb will grow up with a prostate that’s much bigger than it should be. And also its structure has been changed so that it’s hypersensitive to hormone stimulation. For the life of that animal, it’s got a different prostate. It’s got one that’s predisposed to prostate problems.” As little as 2 part per billion of some chemicals found in the environment is enough to alter development for a lifetime.

Hormone-Altering Chemicals

By now most understand that widely used chemicals mimic hormones, estrogen in particular, but few know what this really means. This interview is one of those eye opening experiences. It changed fundamentally how I view and relate to environmental toxins. A must see.
