I’m writing you today because I can no longer contain the ache in my gut and fire in my heart over an injustice that you and I are bearing the brunt of. It takes a village, but there are no villages. I’m referring to the way of life inherent to relatively small, relatively contained multigenerational communities.
I’m talking about the most natural environment for children to grow up within. I’m talking about a way of life we are biologically wired for, but that is nearly impossible to find in developed nations. I’m talking about the primary unmet need driving the frustration that most every village-less mother is feeling. It’s wreaking havoc on our quality of life in countless ways. Enormous pressure is put on parents as we try to make up for what entire communities used to provide. Our priorities become distorted and unclear as we attempt to meet so many conflicting needs at once. We feel less safe and more anxious without the known boundaries, expectations and support of a well-known group of people with whom to grow.
