Peace at home, and witnesses

Big Noisy Peace has the sound file of a conference presentation. I've added a quote and image, spruced it up.

Parenting Peacfully is an older page, newly touched, sound file fully there (in Safari and Chrome, anyway)
http://sandradodd.com/parentingpeacefully.html

Two pages lead in a trail from there, and haven't been announced. The second one was finished this week.
One is "Witness" and the other is called "Where no one can see."

New Book (new edition), problem, solution

If you're subscribed to this blog, sorry for three posts in one day, but the last one was in February. I'll tell you why: My husband, Keith, had a cardiac arrest March 3, and two more that same day, and a fourth arrest on March 11. He was in the hospital for over a month, half of that in intensive care. He's much better now! It's amazing, how well he's doing.

Meanwhile, my webpage provider made some "improvements" that nearly ruined access to much of my site. Pam Laricchia and her son, Micheal, made a little miracle code patch that saved the day (the year, the future). There are still some images missing (mostly very minor), and some formatting glitches, but I'm gradually working through it. It's like cleaning up after a flood, but it's worth doing because so many people have entrusted me with their writings and ideas. All the text is there, and most of it looks as it did before.

Ten years after its 2009 initial release, The Big Book of Unschooling is back in a new edition, thanks to Pam Laricchia's "Forever Curious Press."




In paperback: from Amazon (more bookstores will carry it soon)

Several options for ebook: Click here to choose a store and format.

Questions about teeth, worries about food

Addition to page on children and dentistry, link to article, discussion, and a passage by me, about a young Kirby

Humorous video added to the page on orthorexia
http://sandradodd.com/eating/orthorexia

If dietary considerations are becoming like a religion, please try to relax enough that unschooling isn't hampered by it, and that the marriage and relationships are still strong. Some families have ended up with crippling problems, from an unschooling point of view. Families are important. Logic and truth are good for unschooling.

Issues, Anxiety, Negativity (rising up and above)

I've added "Emotional Challenges of Unschooling," by Amy Childs, to the page "When Parents Have Issues"
http://sandradodd.com/issues/

New, at the top, by Heather Booth, reminding parents that children grow and change:
http://sandradodd.com/anxiety.html

A quote from that page, and a link, were added to the "Negative Approaches to Peace" page
http://sandradodd.com/battle.html

While all three links here are about negativity, and would be a bit much to read all at once, those collections are important for reminding people that phrasing things in negative ways is a barrier to joy, and eventually the whole family can slump into sorrow. There are positive ideas and links within all of those.
