    Wikipedia’s First Ever Definition Of “Stay-At-Home Mother” Reveals Economic & Cultural Realities

    Wikipedia’s First Ever Definition Of “Stay-At-Home Mother” Reveals Economic & Cultural Realities

    Last year, Family and Home Network (FAHN) discovered the Wikipedia page for “Stay-at-Home mother” redirected readers to the pejorative term “Housewife.” Supported by forty years of advocacy for parents who wish to stay home with their babies and children, FAHN crafted the first ever Wikipedia entry for Stay-at-Home mother. The heavily cited entry exposes the culturally-engineered myth that pits working mothers and stay-at-home mothers against each other by sharing the economic reality that most women, 57%, do not have a choice to work or stay home but instead float between home and work out of necessity. Furthermore, labor statistics on Stay-at-Home Mothers are collected in such a way the dynamic and large population of SAHMs have been represented as small and ineffective, when the opposite is true. The Stay-at-Home Mother entry launched on Wikipedia on May 7, 2024.

    “Stay-at-home mothers are often ignored or stereotyped in cultural and political conversations. Although stay-at-home parents do essential work, they’re not considered part of the workforce and their work is not counted in the GDP,” says Willow Duttge Tepper, member of the FAHN Board of Directors and lead of the project.

    “Though homemaking skills should never be denigrated, at-home mothers must not be misidentified as housewives,” says Catherine Myers, Executive Director of FAHN. “Most at-home mothers are focused on their children’s needs and on their own desire to spend time together with their children. Family and Home Network is happy to set the record straight.”

    FAHN has four decades of experience listening to and speaking up to dispel misconceptions about at-home mothers, and the team brought that knowledge to the Wikipedia entry. It’s important because all families must be included in family policy, and many families with an at-home parent are economically vulnerable.

    Unfortunately most U.S. family policy is crafted through the lens of “working families,” leaving out at-home mothers and at-home fathers, who are forgoing paid employment in order to care for their children by choice or by circumstance. FAHN found that stay-at-home fathers have their own Wikipedia page, and now stay-at-home mothers have one too.

    “Care has value, whether it’s done by child care providers or by parents themselves,” says Myers. “At-home mothers, at-home fathers, and other unpaid caregivers must be recognized and their care counted and supported with equitable, inclusive family policies.”

    Because Wikipedia is a publicly accessed site, the new entry has already seen changes, including elimination of some of the paragraphs that expand on the misrepresented labor statistics around SAHMs. Kindred has posted FAHN’s original definition of the term, complete with citations, in our New Story Glossary here.

    Kindred is also proud to have Darcia Narvaez’s award-winning book, Neurobiology and the Development of Human Morality, listed as the first citation on the SAHM Wiki page. You can learn more about this book, and read its introduction and first chapter, in its 10th anniversary celebration interview with Darcia here. You can learn more about centering the needs of children as a path to cultural transformation in our Evolved Nest Initiative posts on Kindred and on the Evolved Nest’s website.

    Lisa Reagan, Kindred’s editor, and Darcia Narvaez, Kindred World’s president, discuss the book that started it all, Neurobiology and the Development of Human Morality: Evolution, Culture, and Wisdom. First published in 2014, the book received the 2015 William James Book Award from Division I of the American Psychological Association as well as the Moral Development and Education SIG at the American Educational Research Association. In 2017, the book was chosen from among more than 360 total entries from 170 universities and 30 countries for the Vatican’s Expanded Reason Award.

    Since 2019, Darcia and Lisa have worked to bring this book’s award-winning research and science to the public through the Evolved Nest Initiative and its many projects, including a trilogy of short films funded by the Vatican award monies. Kindred Magazine is a sister-initiative of the Evolved Nest Initiative. Both are collaborative, educational initiatives of the award-winning, American nonprofit, Kindred World.

    In this celebratory podcast of Neurobiology and the Development of Human Morality’s 10th anniversary, Lisa and Darcia discuss the book’s challenges coming into publication, its unique transdisciplinary approach, and the ongoing work through the Evolved Nest Initiative and Kindred to unpack its far-reaching potential for our human family and planet’s return to our evolutionary pathway to wellbeing, our Evolved Nest.

    Ministry of Surf Film Debuts: Interview with Surfers Healing Founders

    Ministry of Surf Film Debuts: Interview with Surfers Healing Founders

    Kindred is honored to feature the award-winning, short documentary, Ministry of Surf, in recognition of National Autism Month. Ministry of Surf shares the "story of one perfect day" with world champion surfers and ocean waves "bringing the stoke" to children with autism and their heroic families. The short film illustrates the healing power of nature connection, which is a main focus of Kindred World's nonprofit work (www.KindredMagazine.org and www.KindredWorld.org).

    Watch Ministry of Surf here: https://youtu.be/hItwb4-4skc?si=n2DabUZA89H_e4Lb

    Ministry of Surf made the rounds at international film festivals in 2023 and 2024, where it won eight best documentary awards including the Best Humanitarian Short Film at this year's CANNES World Film Festival. You can learn more about the film at www.MinistryofSurfFilm.com.

    In the interview with Danielle and Izzy, you will learn how Surfers Healing was inspired by their son's regression into autism and their family's discovery of the calming impact of the ocean, a phenomenon recognized as Blue Mind Theory. Izzy and Danielle share their vision for families impacted by autism to have "one perfect day" after many imperfect days of dealing with autism's traumatizing impact on children, their families, and communities.

    Kindred World Publishing House is proud to announce the release of The Great Physician: Medicinal Poetry for the Anthropocene, the first major collection of poetry by the renowned neuroscientist, healer, and climate activist, Stephanie Mines, PhD. In The Great Physician, Dr. Mines unflinchingly and soulfully moves us beyond transgenerational trauma, war, oppression, planetary collapse, toward the truth of our birthright: our “Original Brilliance.”

    The public is invited to join the live launch party on April 22, 2024 at 3 p.m. ET. The Great Physician will be launched on Earth Day 2024, with virtual poetry readings and a salon discussion with Stephanie Mines and Lisa Reagan, founder of Kindred World and publisher of Kindred World Publishing House. (Register for the live event here.)

    In The Great Physician’s autobiographical poetry and prose, Dr. Mines shares how her personal and professional background shaped her insights into a fusion of trauma recovery and climate activism. In her global activism through her Climate Change & Consciousness nonprofit, Dr. Mines focuses on humanity’s forward moving direction where inner and outer climates meet. In that place of mystery is our connection with the natural world and the living systems waiting to communicate with us, to give us what data cannot record.

    Poetry, Dr. Mines says, helps make possible “the spaciousness needed to match our inner experience to the outer catastrophe that is accelerating before our eyes. It helps us to understand.” These poems are inner experiences through which she, and indirectly the reader, find a way to understand planetary experience, personal and generational cause and effect, and hopefully, the courage and energy to change organically—from war, intolerance, fear, ennui.

    “The invitation I received from Lisa Reagan of Kindred World to assemble a collection of my poems as a chronicle of these times stopped me in my tracks. It led me to an internal retrospective of my life in which I saw that I was born to be a poet as well as a healing artist” writes Dr. Mines in the introduction to The Great Physician. “My life has been marked by irrevocable losses. This is underscored by the crushing impact of the Anthropocene. The loss that is the most brutal, the most devastating, is the loss of our children’s future. I am speaking of the children of the world, born and unborn, as well as my own children and grandchildren.”

    In more than a dozen books that reflect her three decades of research as a neuroscientist and embryologist, Mines has investigated shock and trauma as a survivor, a professional, a clinical researcher, and a healthcare provider. Her work has resulted in her nonprofit, The TARA Approach, which provides practical means for the systemic change she promotes as a Regenerative Health paradigm. Her training and healing modality is used by individuals internationally and by professional counselors and organizations such as addiction clinics, abuse centers, and refugee charities.

    Normalizing Nurturing: An Interview with Authors of Attached at the Heart

    Normalizing Nurturing: An Interview with Authors of Attached at the Heart

    Lisa Reagan, Kindred's editor, talks with the authors of the book, Attached at the Heart. Lysa Parker and Barbara Nicholson share their insights from the third editor of their beloved and classic parenting book.

    Read more about the interview and watch the video version here: https://kindredmedia.org/2024/01/normalizing-nurturing-a-discussion-with-the-authors-of-attached-at-the-heart/

    Read the foreword to the book, by Darcia Narvaez, here: https://kindredmedia.org/2024/01/attached-at-the-heart-the-foreword-by-darcia-narvaez/

    Learn more about the book here: https://kindredmedia.org/2024/01/35730/

    “Our book encourages the nurturing care and emotional connections necessary to build strong, resilient brains for optimal mental and emotional health. It’s revolutionary because the information in this book isn’t found in most parenting books. It counters popular parenting advice in order to empower parents to listen to their babies and young children. These early years are critical to the development of trust and empathy, the necessary ingredients for developing a secure attachment,” said co-author Barbara Nicholson, MEd, CEIM.

    Attached at the Heart is endorsed by parenting experts, pediatricians and luminary moms such as Alanis Morissette and Mayim Bialik, PhD.

    “When we co-founded Attachment Parenting International, now known as Nurturings, nearly 30 years ago, we knew that new parents needed evidence-informed education and practical information about how best to nurture their babies. That’s how Attached at the Heart came about – as a guidebook for new parents to help them lean into their caregiving instincts and set their children up for success,” said co-author Lysa Parker, MS, CFLE, CEIM.

    Attached at the Heart has been a key resource for the attachment parenting movement, encouraging parents to trust their instincts and provide responsive care for their children.

    “Research has proven that early nurturing experiences transform lives. The Eight Principles of Parenting that are detailed in our book are supported by research and rooted in attachment theory. Attached at the Heart provides science and evidence-backed recommendations to guide new parents in their loving journey,” said Nicholson.

    The 3rd edition provides new recommendations regarding infant sleep, how to help children and their parents maintain a secure attachment, and how parents can learn to be more emotionally self-aware in order to teach their children emotional regulation strategies.
