Intelligences, Critical Thinking, "Me time"

Added ten links and an line of bird outlines to the page on Multiple Intelligences.

Critical thinking, critical thought... When reading, wonder whether it's plausible, reasonable, sensible. Wonder why.

Added new writing by Jen Keefe, and two images/quotes (Just Add Light posts) to "me time"

Infants, babies, toddlers, in German and English

Translation by Sabine Reichelt of some of my writing about infants, babies and toddlers:
Sei ihr Partner, nicht ihr Gegner
It was published in March 2018 in this issue of unerzogen

The source material from which the translator worked is here. She didn't use the first part, I think, and said she shortened the end.
This is eleven pages / nine sections from my book The Big Book of Unschooling.

Real world, "facist PC garbage," self-command

Saved an interesting Q&A about "the real world," too long for the Unschool World page, so it has its own. Good writers you might recognize contributed to that 2014 question about how to keep CPS from taking unschooled kids away.

New writing (quote by evil others and commentary by me) at the bottom of
(I was insulted, but I did not stand down.)

Addition to "self-regulation" (a page warning against that as a goal) adding "self-command" with a Jane Austen quote
