Not changing, changing slowly, changing quickly!

A story of NOT Changing—how people can plan and prepare and provision themselves and not actually accomplish any unschooling

August 31, in a presentation at the Free to Be Unschooling Conference, I said "Gradually move toward doing it right now."
It was amusing, so I told the audience I was writing it down. I have added it to the bottom of both of "Gradual Change" and "Do It", each with a link to the other page:

Quotes, focus, ideas-not-individuals

New quotes added:

Emily Strength quote added to Do It
Meredith Novak quote added to Beginning
Sandra Dodd quote added (in Spanish in a graphic, and then the English original) to Quotes

It came up again, someone recommending "Non-Violent Communication" as an unschooling tool.
That's a problem.

Learning to participate in discussions of unschooling ideas: It's not personal.

Food as religion, fears and health

I don't consider any of these pages "finished," but they all have the starts of good collections.
Before about 2012, I wouldn't have thought they had anything to do with unschooling, but increasingly people are finding it difficult to unschool because of their dietary beliefs.

Food as a religion

Credentials (lack of value, in unschooling discussion)

Choosing food fears over families, with a beautiful account by a mom named Nicole, box on the left:

Health is NOT improved by nagging, says a study from the University of Copenhagen.
