Crazy but true - our family really has tested and reviewed over 80 mineral sunscreens, and we know the best natural sunscreens that really work! In this comprehensive sunscreen review, we share which ones stay on in the water or when you sweat...

Which brands make you look white like a ghost and which go on smoothly, what got us burned and what natural ingredients are REALLY the best (and the brands that are tricking you with their marketing). We've learned a lot about sun safety and sunscreen efficacy, and I continue to do research on things like Vitamin D. We started in 2010 with 28 of the 40 natural sunscreens that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rated as "safe" at the time. (They now rank hundreds that way; exciting to see more and more brands getting on board!)

Helicopter parents think that they're doing what's best for their kids but actually, they're hurting their kids' chances at success. In particular, they're ruining their kids' chances of landing a job and keeping it.

Helicopter parents don't want their kids to get hurt. They want to soften every blow and cushion every fall. The problem is that these over-protected kids never learn how to deal with loss, failure or disappointment -- inevitable aspects of everyone's life. Over-protection makes it nearly impossible for these young people to develop frustration tolerance. Without this important psychological attribute, young people enter the workforce at a great disadvantage.

It's never been done before. The first-of-its-kind study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American homeschooled children shows who is really ailing... and parents should be worried.

Something is wrong with America's children. They are sick - allergic, asthmatic, anxious, autoimmune, autistic, hyperactive, distracted and learning disabled. Thirty-two million American children - a full 43% of them - suffer from at least one of 20 chronic illnesses not including obesity. Across the board, once rare pediatric disorders from autism and ADD to Type 1 diabetes and Tourette's syndrome are soaring, though few studies pool the data. Compared to their parents, children today are four times more likely to have a chronic illness.

In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was killed on the 17th day of Athyr, the third month of the ancient calendar. (Note that this is October 3rd in our modern calendar)

3/17 is also the date of a Masonically-created holiday, St. Patrick's Day. The story has it that the holiday was established by high level Freemason, George Washington, allegedly to reward Irish soldiers in the Continental Army. But "St. Paddy's" has traditionally been a very minor Saint's day in Ireland. Considering that the day has become America's defacto Bacchanal (which takes us back to Osiris) it's worth noting some of the parallels of this day with Solar mythology.

A few months ago I wrote about how you can encrypt your entire life in less than an hour. Well, all the security in the world can't save you if someone has physical possession of your phone or laptop...

On his way through the airport, Customs and Border Patrol agents pulled him aside. They searched him, then detained him in a room with a bunch of other people sleeping in cots. They eventually returned and said they'd release him if he told them the password to unlock his phone. Bikkannavar explained that the phone belonged to NASA and had sensitive information on it, but his pleas fell on deaf ears.

When our fourth born turned eleven and her older brothers and sister were delving into the world of JR Tolkien, a start contrast came into view. This child was struggling to read Junie B. Jones.

It was a confusing picture because there is no question she is very bright. She barely needs an explanation for difficult math concepts, she speaks two languages and is our best translator. She has excellent recall and problem solving skills, not to mention her amazing creativity, people skills and incredible work ethic. Yet, she was not reading smoothly after a home phonics curriculum and a year at public school, so we assumed she just needed some reinforcement. We did the reading program again from the beginning and then tried another program, reasoning that maybe she learns in a different way.

ADD and ADHD affect many areas of life including social situations, down time at home, ability to complete daily chores, and even sports and music practice.

As homeschoolers, we have tremendous freedom to adjust our learning environment for the different learning styles of our kids. We can choose curriculum, schedules, even foods and lighting that complement rather than frustrate our kids preferred way of learning.

Dyslexia is a learning disorder related to reading and spellings.Flax seeds, another time tested remedy for treating dyslexia, should be roasted, powdered and stored.

It is not triggered by an intellectual disability but is in fact caused by poor co-ordination between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. It has nothing to do with impaired vision, loss of hearing or inadequate or below standard instruction. A delay in learning to speak and ascertaining a dominant hand, trouble with rhyming words and a difficulty in grasping new words are signs of dyslexia.

There are many different reasons why parents make the decision to home-school their children, and often, the results are extremely positive.

One nationwide study found that home-schooled students scored in the eightieth percentile for every test category, compared to the fiftieth percentile, which happens to be the national average.

Detoxing from vaccines is a process without a definite timeline. Think of it as an ongoing journey. Toxin accumulation, especially heavy metals like mercury, can take a long time to remove from the body.

If you've been vaccinated and suffer from serious vaccination damage, you're best off living a lifestyle that promotes detoxification for the rest of your life. The truth is, you may never be able to dispel all of the toxins that have caused the damage. Living the healthiest possible lifestyle may be your only way to live symptom-free. But then again, to one degree or another, this is true for everyone.
