Pam Sorooshian links, Deb Lewis lists, Strewing

I added some links to my Pam Sorooshian page. The writing was out
there, but now will be more easily found:

Not a new page, but a reminder (and it has been linked another place
or two):
Economics of Restricting TV Watching of Children

I also added to the Deb Lewis lists. Sometimes someone's writing
speaks easily to a particular reader, and its nice to be able to give
them more of the voice they like.

My writing, from a post on unschooling discussion, added to
http://sandradodd.com/strew/how


There have been a couple of discussions in which people said strewing
was manipulative and sneaky. I don't see it that way at all. If I
know what kinds of things my children could use being exposed to to
be more well rounded, or to "fill in gaps" in what they know, or to
take them to another level of understanding, bringing those things up
in physical or conversational ways is no more "manipulative" than
bringing more fruit into the house if there hasn't been much fruit
consumption lately, or bringing them bottles of water on hot summer
days. I don't need to force them to eat oranges or drink water, but
I can notice it might be good for them and make it appealing.
