Socialization, "just", Robyn Coburn

New writing, second item, about finding social experiences for children:

New page on problems with adding "just" to an otherwise powerful phrase.
(Not counting "Just Add Light and Stir," which is a reference to old advertisements for instant foods.)

New, Pam Laricchia interviewed Robyn Coburn. I've saved Pam's beautiful into, and more, as part of my Robyn Coburn collection:

Zombies, Changes and Changing

What might turn your child into a zombie? Rules, mostly. Or zombie attack.
The page isn't new, but I added new writing, lower right, and I had not announced it previously!

There are several pages now about changing—becoming better parents, changing terminology and ideas, becoming softer and less inflexible, understanding why the discussions are as they are. Not all are directly helpful to new unschoolers. Some are meta-discussion (discussing the discussions, or analyzing why some advice is given, or how it is given).

Announced here before:

Thoughts on Changing

How Unschooling Changes People

Unschooling—Getting It

Thoughts on "yes" again (second section is an account of changes)

Not announced before:
Negative opinions changed to positive

Trust, connections, being offended

Newest addition at the bottom of the page on trust, plus smaller bits above that:

New on Connections, about supporting a child's interests:

Sometimes people jump to offense. Try not to.

Sometimes people take pride in their indignation or whip themselves up into outrage.
The first link is more fun because it has Donald Duck. Don't be Donald Duck.

Positivity, food fears, cautions & curses,

Addition, middle of page where it says "Words create mood. Words can BE negativity."

Overcoming food fears

When I recommended that people read a little, try a little, wait a while, watch, even about things that aren't unschooling, I was sent some ill wishes on the side. There's commentary at the bottom, for those curious who don't want to read the whole new page:
