Our ancestors thrived by being in groups and tribes. Val discusses the benefits of this, why we shouldn’t be limited to just the nuclear family, how we can emulate how our ancestors lived, and how the Hemmingers did just that. With most households having two working parents, busier than ever, it’s a recipe for frayed nerves and exhaustion, so shouldn’t we have some help? There’s truth in the saying “it takes a village to raise a child.”
Val also share’s an inspiring story about the “ideal” divorce when children are involved. It may be a difficult and painful situation, but each parent needs to put their differences aside for the sake of the child. Competition and fighting between parents is not ideal, but the opposite, a supportive and harmonious environment, will allow the child to flourish.
