TV, relationships, enthusiasm

Sometimes when I'm dusting a page off, repairing links, putting in the trees art to link to my main page instead of the gate that opens and closes, I notice that a page is exceptional and has probably been forgotten. Here's one. It's so old that it was put up when there were limits to the length of a page, and I had it split into two. It's restored as one, has new margins, links aren't underlined, and even if you've read it before you might want to read it again.

It was a discussion at, on TV, in 2001.

"Yes! It is absolutely about putting the relationship first."

being online, parenting mindfully, myths

Justifications for Being Online to learn about Unschooling
(not new, just obscure)

NEW and exciting:
Ren Allen and I gave a talk in October 2005 and you can listen to it here:
The text will give you some context, or you can just scroll down and play the talk.

TV, sleeping and religion

What a two-year-old wants to photograph
"Now I see the flowers and my DD2's joy."
(second item)

More added to the section on sleeping—a directory page and information on co-sleeping.

Just the beginnings of a page about religion.

Lists of good ideas

The ABCs of Unschooling, by Mary Gold
It's not new, but it's refurbished, and might be new to you!

Principles of Unschooling, by Pam Sorooshian
It's not new, but it's new on my site.

Deb Lewis's list of Things to Do in the Winter
It's not new at all, but it's nearly winter and there are lots of people who haven't seen it.

"MOVIES AS A PLAYGROUND, as tools, as portals
...sharing movies with our kids"
Not brand new, lately updated, and has lists galore!
(That Heath Ledger example was given a couple of years ago. I was thinking of the connection between "10 Things I Hate About You" and "The Patriot," which isn't the Civil War at all, but there are way more movies about the U.S. Civil War than about the American Revolution, though the recent mini-series on John Adams parallels it without many battle scenes.)

Wishlists for Unschoolers
Maybe you have the need to give a gift to an unschooling family, and that has ideas!

Gifts for Guys to Buy
"Some people are just not cut out to cruise the Barbie aisles. Luckily there are alternatives and you were probably going there anyway...." Not a new article, one of my oldest, pre-webpages, so it's here for being obscure and not often dusted off and brought to light.

Pam Sorooshian, magic and learning

Pam Sorooshian has written something wonderful which I've called "How to Be a Good Unschooler" (and she didn't mind)

Magic on TV, and TV on the internet, and magic in other guises

and it's linked from the TV page too

and from juggling

To the right are some images from July's Learn Nothing Day. Because I got some new photos today, I gathered up what I could find and built a show. I also moved the notes and comments from last summer onto their own page:
