What an amazing immediate journey for dr joanne to take on such a long schooling you give back with your organizations and talks. She started school when she was breastfeeding her Fifth child — she speaks of awareness to the earth and all its beings —!!!!YET!!!! she has 5 children —breast feeding the 5th. does that mean she birthed 5. or did she adopt. very different for my point here. My point is over producing children. why is it so overlooked because it’s “an innocent child” that Irresponsible parent produce When the have more than 2. 5 children taxes the earth carbon foot print and all that. over population for what the planet can support and over population for what a parent can raise. i’m the 6 th child to catholic oarents. it was fun having so many litter mates but the attention and intention fell short with too many kids for two oarents to pay quality attention to. we as a culture need to raise trauma free future care takers of our planet. not just pooping out addicts that are strung out on a lack of quality upbringing.
i’m not saying joanne has or has been a crappy parent. but from experience too many kids is too many.
I wrote that first comment with only listening to the first few minutes— i’ve now listened to the whole interview. She started a 4-? year schooling to receive a doctorate— her youngest(?) was breast feeding. she worked 100 hrs a week—- when was she a mother? Seriously. She’s nearly yelling at her audience here to be more compassionate and we need a cultural shift yet she chose to throw the baby out with the bath water by choosing her scientific career ofer raising humans. You. an say all the right things but absence and abandonment speaks to the depth of feeling in these children. Her information is great. she’s done a good service for the culture shift— and or but her tone of yelling and her focus on science —. why did she have children? selfish to try and do both. my opinion
