New page on stories of children surprising a parent or two by some knowledge or action:
http://sandradodd.com/surprise

and "When Parents have Issues"

Healing, Spanish discussion, a downside of choice

New page on healing, with links to a dozen other pages on healing and change:
http://sandradodd.com/healing

In Spanish, on Facebook, Radical Unschooling en EspaƱol, group created by Alicia Gonzalez:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/708095229264708/

New page, not new writing. Choice creates a burden (a comparison to women's movement problems from the 1970's).
http://sandradodd.com/issues/choice
(Not a light and breezy page. It burdens the reader with a reminder not to burden other parents or children.)

Priorities, Albuquerque ALLive, Hema Bharadwaj

New photo (by Lisa Jonick) and caption/quote (mine), you can't miss it, partway down:
http://sandradodd.com/priorities

Albuquerque ALLive, registration open, December 27-30, 2014
http://albuquerqueallive.blogspot.com

The Big Book of Unschooling is dedicated to Hema Bharadwaj, because it was her idea, and prodding, that got me to write it. Here's a paga about her. She will be speaking in Albuquerque in December.

She and other speakers are linked in a tab at Albuquerque ALLive link above.

Later unschooling, Marriage Strengthening and Divorce Prevention

About the chances of success coming to unschooling later…. an update added (bottom), links and a photo:
http://sandradodd.com/later/unschooling

I hope my readers won't need these, but you might find yourself advising a friend who could use knowing!

Added (second item there) to divorce prevention page:
Something BIG happens when a person turns away from selfishness to service.
Something HUGE happens when a person can care about another person more than about himself. (and more)

Cleaned up and linked elsewhere, an obscure page for helping prevent divorce:

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)
http://sandradodd.com/enough
__________

Reminders: I'm speaking in Maine in September, various places, and one night in New Hampshire:
http://allinmaine.blogspot.com/p/calendar.html

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.)

Openness to Experience, Interview Bits

Newish page, expanded quite a bit:
http://sandradodd.com/open

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?
