Introverts and Extroverts and in between

This was added to the bottom of a page on my site, but because I chose to put it at the bottom, I figured it should be at the top somewhere. Here it is. I followed links back to find the artist and that's credited/linked.

If people offer all of those courtesies to EVERY child (partner, friend), they won't need to worry about whether they're extrovert, introvert or a combo!

Make-Your-Own Thinking Sticks





I got tired of making Thinking Sticks and I can't ship them overseas anymore without crazy-high shipping costs. Until I get around to making online randomizers, I'm sharing the word lists and directions. You don't need to use sticks and sharpies; there are other options. Some suggestions are in his first link:

Instructions in English and in French

Here is an introduction with links at the bottom to lists in French, Dutch and German and four English lists: American, British, Canadian and Australian.

Judgment, failure, self-regulation

These topics sound negative, as a group. Coincidence.

Not new, but never announced, it seems. (And some recent additions.)
http://sandradodd.com/judgment

Failure (to get unschooling, to support or maintain it)
http://sandradodd.com/failure

Nice new bit about self-regulation, from Sarah Carley Thompson, second from the bottom
