The Ultimate Cool Kids’ Guide to Homeopathy:
Become a Revolutionary Independent Thinker with Practical Homeopathy
As parents, we encourage our children to be all they can be… to reach their highest potential and take on the world forthrightly.
And when we do that with love, patience and dedication, it works. I know because I did it with my own kids 25 years ago.
Here is a fact: The study of homeopathy builds self-sufficiency, competence, and confidence.
I believe it helps one to develop true self-esteem – the kind that arises from mastery of skills and growth of character. Real self-worth comes from having self-respect, and self-respect arises in response to the same qualities that cause us to respect others – from doing things that we respect, and by living in a way that we respect.
I want to help you challenge your child – so they stretch, grow and develop – not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and in their character, knowledge and skill.
Trust me – when they get their first positive result – be it treating their dog, cat, or fish, the sense of accomplishment will circle back and reinforce their studying – there is no limit to this pattern.
Imagine how that positive feeling will reverberate through all aspects of their young lives.Character development takes work, discipline and dedication – but it can be fun! And that’s my goal…to make it fun. And I know how it can be self-sustaining.
Many of you already know me. I’m Joette Calabrese, and I’m a homeopathic consultant, lecturer, and author.
I’m also a Weston A. Price Foundation Honorary Board member, and inaugural author of the column in Wise Traditions called, “The Homeopathy Journal.”
Most importantly, I’m a mom who has raised her three boys to adulthood using only homeopathy and pig-headed determination.
My Story. My reasoning.
Years ago when I had only one child, I was in the throes of agonizing over what educational models my husband and I should be considering for him and for our future children.
I was drawn to John Taylor Gotto’s book and the works of Charlotte Issrbyt.
The writings of these authors discouraged me from considering certain kinds of public education. So, I was left to choose from private, Catholic or Christian education over what the public education system had to offer, particularly in my state of New York.
But the more I studied and read these kinds of authors, the more it became clear to me that the task of educating my children was a responsibility that began at home – more my job and my husband’s than anyone else’s.
I simply could not offload the bulk of that responsibility to others.
I already knew this instinctively in other areas of parental life: I wasn’t willing to buy fast foods – I wanted to make my own meals from high quality ingredients for my children.
I wanted to carefully consider and choose which church we went to.
I wanted to make conscious choices about what kind of medicine we were going to use.
We were not going to be a family that dropped our children off at a daycare center – I did not what to miss my child’s first words.
I wanted to be the one to change the baby’s diaper.
I wanted to be the one who made his food from scratch.
I wanted to be the one who taught him our family’s traditions and religious beliefs.
I wanted to be the one.
But despite my yearning to be all that I could be as a parent, I couldn’t do it all… I was never very good at math!
So, when we decided to homeschool our children, my husband taught the math. I taught English, I taught some music and I taught science.
Today, my three adult children are independent and fully self-sufficient.
My oldest, at 33, is a Captain for a major airline.
My middle son, at 26, runs a property management company.
And my youngest, at 24, has full responsibility for maintaining our company computers and system-wide server.
At that time in my life, when I was homeschooling my young boys, I was also going to homeopathy school in Toronto.
I did this for 5 years.
While I was studying, it hit me that I was paying for this education… and I realized that it would make sense to have my children learn homeopathy, too.
So, for the science block of their homeschooling, I included some conventional science books (I was able to eschew the politically correct science that is so heavy-handedly taught in some schools) and added homeopathic self-care to our curriculum, which naturally lead to learning anatomy and physiology.
Also, Latin, botany and zoology, too!
What I mean by “self-care” is that I taught my boys practical homeopathic strategies to deal with their own minor ailments – i.e. when something happens, this is what you do.
And that reverberated through our curriculum. Not only did they learn practical lessons and develop hands-on skills, but they developed self-reliance along the way.
And if you know me, you know how much I value self-reliance. In a way, I think of it as the master skill.
Whether you refer to it as grit, or mettle, resourcefulness or independence, it is the character trait that helps us become life-long learners, accomplished doers and brave thinkers.
The character trait at the root of leadership, fortitude, creativity and success.
I found that each success my children achieved using homeopathy, from their first cure onward, had a cumulative positive effect.
The proud and exhilarated feelings they experienced from their accomplishments circled back and reinforced more enthusiasm for learning.
We lived in the country and our children learned how to treat their goats, the chickens, and the ducks with homeopathy. We rescued kittens and wildlife. They learned how to treat themselves when they needed it.
My husband and I felt this was an important part of their education and it was seamlessly integrated into our homeschooling lives, along with homemade foods, small homesteading, Sunday church, classical music, extended family every Sunday, and plenty of time for sports and play. Homeopathy just fit in without a hitch.
Today, for my kids, homeopathy is their first choice of medicine.
They may not have the depth of knowledge and experience that I do, they may not have the immediate answers I have, but I’m grateful that my expertise lets me hold on to some continued medical relevance in their lives, and I’m glad that they love homeopathy enough to value my expertise.
I hear stories of their adventures with homeopathy as adults living their own lives – stories such as treating their friends’ headaches, uprooting sports injuries from working out too long in the gym, or helping their cat get over a urinary infection.
My now adult sons are able to help their friends, and their skills in this area are valued and appreciated by those friends.
Homeopathy fits in with a holistic, holy, self-sustaining family lifestyle. A family centered lifestyle.
Self-reliance comes from…
- Taking on responsibility for not only oneself, but for those who are dependent on you – your dog or cat, your family and friends
- Pursuit of character growth and integrity
- Pursuit of important goals
- Pursuit of knowledge
- Mending rather than spending
- Doing and making and building rather than buying
- Creativity and a spirit of invention
- Thinking for oneself instead of being swept along with the crowd
- Being a leader or collaborator rather than a passive bystander
One of the aspects I like about homeopathy is that it is not unlike studying one’s faith, or studying music or philosophy or some other grand subject that one finds fascinating – it is a never-ending journey. You could study this for decades and still have more to learn.
The study of homeopathy contains enough rich material to satisfy the intellectual.
The study of homeopathy is practical and hands-on in a way that will keep the restless actively engaged.
The study of homeopathy is nurturing enough to feed the soul of the child who loves to care for animals and to help others.
The study of homeopathy is useful enough to excite the child who dreams of being a great athlete, explorer, outdoorsman or soldier.
I believe it has something to offer everyone – a lifelong, enjoyable pursuit with benefits that will extend beyond any one child or personality.
I don’t have to tell those who are homeschoolers that this course is obviously for more than one child. (And timeless, by the way!)
In fact, this is a family course, meant to be studied together. Not necessarily all at the same time (although you certainly can if you wish), but definitely intended to foster family cohesiveness.
Whether you’re 15 years old or 50.
I’m calling this a course for ages 12 and up, but I encourage parents to make certain it is being studied in such a way that the little ones, as well as grandma, hear it too. This curriculum will resonate with all on some level.

There is a term in psychology called Learned Helplessness.
This describes a phenomenon we can see all around us in today’s world.
When people feel they have no control over their situation and no tools to improve their situation – little by little, they end up behaving, and worse, thinking in a helpless manner.
They are no longer capable of perceiving opportunities for change.
They become like leaves floating in a river, swept along by the currents and incapable of self-direction. I believe this can lead to depression, apathy, and stagnation.
Together, we are going to turn that flow around and move it toward the focus of the individual being independent and building back the structure of success.
“One needs goals. It is in the pursuit of goals that nearly everyone finds positive emotion.” – Dr. Jorden Peterson
We are going to give your children a goal, and we are going to make it fun along the way.
Not only the goal of learning homeopathy, but through the learning of homeopathy, indirectly, unexpectedly, and unassumingly, your children will become independent and feel the positive emotion Jorden Peterson talks about.
They say knowledge is power; I say knowledge is power is peace of mind.
I congratulate you for even considering this possibility of training your child up with self-reliance for his or her own self-care and what will reverberate out to the whole family.
This is not just for your child, but for your entire family and its lasting legacy.
Build your family’s legacy through your children.
I can’t make you do this but I promise if you do, your family and generations that follow will thank you.
What a legacy to leave behind – your children will be ever grateful and you will remain relevant in their lives forever.
