Rebellion, Successes, "Help!" and Myths (not the good ones)

http://sandradodd.com/rebellion
I had forgotten about this, so much so that when someone asked a straight-out question about rebellion, I didn't send this link. I found it in fortuitously accidental fashion (as usual).

There are additions to these pages:

http://sandradodd.com/unschool/gettingit
http://sandradodd.com/feedback

New title art (by Holly) and rearrangement; deletion of deadish links.

http://sandradodd.com/help
(still working on that one)

http://sandradodd.com/myths
This one looks fine on my Mac, but not so good on the kids' PCs. It's readable either way.
NEW (but not on my site): Two thirds of the way down is a link to something new by an unschooled teenager in Iowa, about parenting and video games. He interviewed me for it.

comparisons, a Spanish translation, Marty's bad poem


Lisa W. wrote a really good summary of what relaxed homeschoolers might do that unschoolers don't
http://sandradodd.com/unschool/vsRelaxedHomeschooling
and it inspired me to gather links to similar things I already had (which I have done)
http://sandradodd.com/comparisons
and to put up other comparisons (which I have not yet done, but will).

"Cómo criar a un niño con respeto" por Sandra Dodd...
http://fishtobirds.blogspot.com/2008/04/cmo-criar-un-nio-con-respeto-por-sandra.html
That is "How to Raise a Respected Child," translated into Spanish by Laura Mascaró, who says she might make a few changes after her brother reads it, but it's there in its first-pass form, and I love the phrase "ese día de panqueque-forzoso." Sounds way better in Spanish than the original "...that forced-pancake day." In Spanish it could be a cool movie title. In English... eh, pancakes.
Laura links the original.

Marty wrote and recited a *terrible* poem in St. Louis a couple of years back and that has been enshrined here:

For photos at my house recently: Unexpected Beauty (and some flowers)

Thanks for looking!
