Actually, once you get past the hippy-dippy crap, she has very sound and substantial principles for gifts backpacks with essentials for outdoor activities, hikes, swimming, and exploration plus books to nurture a love of reading.
Our gifts to our kids were often along the same lines in fact, they still are. We are doing family snowshoeing at Christmas. I bought our oldest daughter (now 33) and boyfriend a couple of great books about Western National Parks. They love hiking and backpacking. I got my daughter a great ball cap to commemorate her backpacking of the entire length of the John Muir Trail in the Sierras.
Our other two kids, both younger, have similar interests. Our time taking them outdoors and boating, camping, serious hiking, biking, horseback riding, etc instilled a love of the outdoors in them.
Kudos to the mom who wrote this article. Shes on the right track with her kids and instilling a love of country in them, too(shes a nationalist).
She’s doing it because she’s full of herself. You did it without fanfare or writing an article about it.
Agreed but, as you point out, there is a lot of apparent eco-baggage as well.
Speaking personally, I as a gift giver and as a conserving conservative, look first at the desires and then find appropriate matches that encourage individualism and responsibility as much possible.
We should not surrender the concept of *conserving* to the LEFT, it is a vital part of OUR political DNA. I take joy in minimizing my use of most things AND it ALSO is quite rewarding to my bank account which is a talking point in my conversations. I live a Christian concept of being a good steward of my talents which is ANOTHER poke at the atheistic LEFT who ignore where this concept originates!
God Bless all & a Merry Christmas to all!
