Additional update on Pam Sorooshian's daughters, all of whom have masters' degrees now, at the bottom.

Rearrangement and clean-up of the page on young children:
I moved the list of ideas from a sidebar to the top of the page,but they came out of the chat below that. In between I collected some resources and links people mentioned or set afterward.

Addition, commentary and brief section of the film "Harvey," near the top of

Unschooling works; Antagonism; What?

"Unschooling works," an article from 2002, and a bit of update, with links to other older writings.

Avoiding Antagonism (Us vs. Them), and avoid accepting or believing things in batches.

What does this have to do with unschooling? A poop question and less poopy answers:

Bonding, Principles, French

Family Bonding, recording, image, and transcript, of an episode of The Unschooling Life Podcast, now has a page on my site: and at YouTube.

That led to some corrections and additions at the page on Principles.

The French language and translation pages have been stabilized and improved!

For eight months, I couldn't even open the admin area there, or all the "special characters" (French letters and punctuation) would have turned to question marks, in the code. Other problems caused some titles and art not to show. Now, thanks to the generous volunteer assistance of Vlad Gurdiga, a dad from Always Learning, the site was moved. He found a platform that could support its quirks and antiquity, and set up a back-stage editing area for me there. Now I've touched every French page (I hope).
