Respect; checklists (French); rights and freedoms

Added to the "Respect index"—two dozen "respect" quotes have been added.

French translation of Disposable Checklists for Unschoolers:

I've just added something to my page on divorce. It came up in old e-mail while I was searching for something different. I'm glad I came across it, so it could be saved. It's near the bottom here; you could search "more rights" to find it.

"Near the bottom" doesn't seem best in general, but that page has lots of really good things on it.

Part of the longer writing:

"An intact marriage/family has MANY more rights and freedoms than a split family involved with the court system."

Coaching kids on courtesy, Sewers, and a Minecraft Sewer

Coaching (Choices, Freedom, and other difficult ideas)
by Marta Pires, a collection of quotes, with commentary

A mom asked for ideas to help a child who was curious about and fascinated by sewers. Ideas flew!

Thomas Laferrière-Meloche visited a real sewer treatment plant, and made a video showing some of that and his minecraft sewers, with a sweet note at the end (near the bottom of that page).

Minecraft, Inspiration, European tour, a Boxwood Tree

Beautiful account of love and learning, three paragraphs at the bottom of this page:

"Who inspired you?"  Summary of responses in an intro round at the ALL Unschooling Symposium in Minnesota, May 2013:

Update on European tour schedule! It's about to happen. I leave in two weeks.

One of my own early parenting inspirations, Lori Odhner, has expressed the wish to own a dogwood tree. That seems EASY! The difference in my life and marriage and relationship with my children that Lori made is HUGE compared to a tree. If any of you know Lori, or have reason to appreciate the help she gave me that I have passed on, take a peek at my project:

The photo is a link. It's also Holly (whose name is changing to Doozy), on some 1960's stairs in the middle of a three-level store that once sold lamps and electric lighting, and now is a thrift shop.
