Is Scandinavia already “Great” (and doesn’t have to get “great again,” as we do in America)? Scandinavian countries boast of a Scandinavian Utopia– a place of nirvana that Bernie Sanders constantly fights for in his quest for a government that provides happiness for all Americans. Should “Scandinavia” come here, it would be a kind of Leftist’s dream where “high taxes” are the way to a
transcendent state where there is never struggle – only abundance.  An idyllic place to live? Will we, at some point, settle for “Scandinavian happiness?”

At what point did American children become so disrespectful? One theory is when many Boomers became wealthy, their children became spoiled and entitled. This has lasted on with upcoming generations. Whatever happened to manners, respect for parents and
elders, and family time? Whatever happened to children being seen and not heard? Why is the child like the tail wagging the dog? What’s the best way to curb bratty and disrespectful children? One physician  says children are immersed in a culture of disrespect.

Interview: Leigh Richardson, Counselor, Brain Performance Center. Topic: How do the children from the California “House of Horrors,” who were tortured by their parents begin to heal? What methods of therapy are used? How long will scars be there? Did any of the children develop a kind of “Stockholm Syndrome” with the parents?

There’s a new trend in education—micro schools. They’re small, with generally no more than 150 children enrolled in the school and no more than 15 in a class. Children are taught through projects, not memorization. According to Education Week’s Arianna Prothero “with small buildings, few faculty and staff members, and a curriculum built largely around free, online programs, micro schools strip education down to the bare essentials. At Acton Academy, a Montessori-style micro school network launched out of Austin, Texas, tuition runs about $10,000 per year which is relatively equal to the national average cost of attending private school (according to Private School Review). What parent wouldn’t want their child to receive this kind of personalized education? But the cost is still heavy – how do we mainstream this form of teaching?
