DOH! Sorry a draft launched.

True! This page isn't finished!

How much is enough? [This page needs two more links, and pull posts from Just Add Light and add quotes from other places on the site)

Reminders: I'm speaking in Maine in September, various places, and one night in New Hampshire:

I've been interviewed a few times for a series on unschooling Amy Childs is doing, and the one about the benefits of unschooling only has me and Amy. (Most have three to six voices.)
(Others can be accessed in the lefthand list there.)

How much is enough? [This page needs two more links, and pull posts from Just Add Light and add quotes from other places on the site)

Lisa Celedon wrote about beginning more gradually. It's the fifth item down:

Openness to Experience, Interview Bits

Newish page, expanded quite a bit:

Amy Childs is creating a series of +/- 15 minute podcasts about unschooling. The first one was about Learn Nothing Day. She asked me for people she could interview about that, and asked them about other things, too, so some of those voices will come up in future podcasts.

My favorites so far:
Learn Nothing Day
Who Can Unschool?

Interviews by video and podcast, new this week

Amy Childs has done a beautiful podcast about Learn Nothing Day. Besides my voice and Amy's, you can hear Alex Polkowsky, Hema Bharadwaj, Julie Daniel, and Amy's daughter Kayla.
(Sound file, fifteen minutes)

a couple of links to go with that:
"Try not to learn. Don't try to learn. Those two aren't the same thing but they're close enough for beginners." (from the last paragraph of this 1998 interview: An Interview with Sandra Dodd

Criticism of Learn Nothing Day:

Yvonne Laborda and María José Cifuentes interviewed me on June 17, from Spain.

It will be at, with two others from María José Cifuentes' video hangout shows.

Why we unschooled, feedback, open, half empty

"Why we unschooled" (written a few years ago, about a story from 1990 or so)
This is on my blog, but I suppose some of those posts should be included as resources. I won't announce all of them, but you can subscribe there if you're interested in more personal things about me or my family.

Nice feedback, lefthand column. I don't save all of it (some I print and put in a special box without quoting elsewhere), but these seemed special.

New page on being open to things, people, life:

Older page I thought had been announced, because I had used it on Just Add Light and Stir
It has a good story, so I'm glad I discovered it hadn't been announced yet! and I added a bit.

Gratitude, Tree of Knowledge, Maslow

Gratitude—living with gratitude all the time. (Additions at the top of the page.)

A new image (a video Alex Polikowsky showed me) has been added to this page
and I quoted from that (obscure) page on Just Add Light and Stir

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (serious and humorous)

Photo of a lone tree by the side of a two-lane highway in southern New Mexico, in early morning sun.

More links added to the page of interviews—the videos above, and the interviews of Rippy and Julie (announced here recently):
