Toothbrushing, research on food, Gilligan's Island


New page on how to get a child to brush teeth (because someone deleted a post with good responses)

Addition to page on research on eating:
http://sandradodd.com/eating/research

Several additions to the already-rich Gilligan's Island page, but if you're not on a computer you won't see most of it.
Don't try to live by your phone alone!

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!
http://sandradodd.com/zombies.html

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:

Trust, connections, being offended



Newest addition at the bottom of the page on trust, plus smaller bits above that:
http://sandradodd.com/trust

New on Connections, about supporting a child's interests:
http://sandradodd.com/connections/example

Sometimes people jump to offense. Try not to.
http://sandradodd.com/offended

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."
http://sandradodd.com/battle

Overcoming food fears
http://sandradodd.com/foodfear/

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:

Enough, Moderation, Abundance


Enough? It depends. If you're wondering, do more.
http://sandradodd.com/enough

Moderation (thoughts about why moderation might not be a great goal)
http://sandradodd.com/moderation

Abundance—not a new page, but seems a perfect #3 link to go with "Enough?" and "Moderation."
