The Institute for Humane Education offers month-long distance learning courses that immerse you in connecting with your deepest values and helping create a humane world.

Raising a Humane Child - March 1-26, 2010
A month-long distance learning course for parents who wish to bring the principles and practices of humane education to their child-rearing and family life.

Developed for parents with children of any age, Raising a Humane Child will expand your parenting strategies to help you bring humane education concepts and values to your children and manifest your vision for a better world, starting with your family.

As part of this course you'll have a chance to interact virtually with other parents through discussion boards, receive input from the course advisors and connect with people who are passionate about nurturing compassionate, happier children. Participants will receive a copy of Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times by IHE President, Zoe Weil (http://humaneeducation.org/products/view/6).

Sample Exercise:

What previously unexamined values have you absorbed through your culture, community, and media that do not represent the core of who you are?

Many of us live in ways that represent certain norms in our culture and community, whether or not these represent our true values. For example, many become consumers of a variety of goods that don't necessarily represent their values, while others may feel pressured to alter their appearance or choices to "fit in," even if those changes don't come from within. In what ways have you adopted cultural and communal norms without examining whether they are fully aligned with your values? What happens when you identify these and realize their origin?

Well, first off I am definitely a news junkie, I like the news. It dosen't always put me at ease, I can't believe some of the stories I hear. It is sad for that the news has also become a source of entertainment. It wasn't like that years ago, but I don't want to age myself altogether. Name some stories and I will be glad to tell you how worthy they are. But I could name a few that irritate me here they are. 1. The Bernie Madoff Scandal, 2. Innocent people being taken advantage of, 3. Greed in the business sector, at the expense of the coampany banks and other Wall Street types of institutions that take tax payers money and spend it in the wrong way. I like tabloid stuff to a point, but not on the news station. I also like to listen to animal stories, but I feel there should be a regular station for that type of coverage, but on regular channels, so if people don't want the upper channles, they could watch stuff like Animal Planet or other Dog oriented type of shows. I like indepth news coverage, and investigative news stories also. I am not into crime dramas, but if you look at the news you get a healty dose of that too.

To Nadya I am rooting for you I admire the courage you have and I myself would have had a dozen children if i could have, my family was large grandma had 13 children and mom had 8 its no bodys buisiness but yours ,

I would like to see some fund raisers go toward the help of the 14 children that Nadya Suleman is responsible for. I know there are many thoughts on this, but I feel strongly that she will need to be supported. I hope she gets the support of the community. There are many things imperfect in this world, think about it, she has to take care of her children, which she has done thus far. I would gladly send some children's clothes, or other items that will be used.

This Just In...BREAKING NEWS! :)

The defense for Casey is sticking with the date she wrote on the opposite page, 2003. I'm not sure if there is a way to prove differently, so it may just remain circumstantial evidence. But knowing Casey's tendency to fabricate, I can't help but notice that 2003 and 2008 are just two little squiggles apart. Certainly is she was referring to her daughter's death (it was written five days after Caylee's disappearance if it was '2008'), she might have felt compelled to use some sort of code so as not to incriminate herself.

Hi Mamas!
Starting this Wednesday I will be featured in an 8-week Momlogic fitness challenge with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak (he’s the reason why Eva Mendez, Alicia Keys and more look so great)!

I need your support and it’s easy to help! THIS WEDNESDAY, be sure to join the new “Zip Up Your Jeans” group and you will be able to follow the diet and exercise along with me!

The best part is, just by joining the “Zip Up Your Jeans” group and “weighing in daily” you’ll have the chance to win Harley’s book “The 5 Factor Diet” (check out www.5factordiet.com for more info) and a trip to Los Angeles.

Check back on the Momlogic Community homepage for more details Wednesday!
