Be positive! TV, and The Mahogany Way

New quote from Schuyler Waynforth added to the page on negativity. How to become more positive in the moment, and then in the long term!

Success with Later Unschooling? A link corrected.
(Thanks to Pamela Knapp for finding the problem AND finding the correct link for me!)

TV page, another corrected link.
Eva Witzel found that the PDF for "Preschool Television Viewing and Adolescent Test Scores" had been moved to a new URL, and she sent the new link to me. It's all fixed now.

Amanda Horein found many links broken at
Most of them were geocities sites, which were all taken down (after a year of warnings) last year.

While I was in there, I added The Mahogany Way, a ning for mothers of color:

The photo is Kirby and Marty, years ago.

Photos needed, Separation, "Perfect Vision"

If you would like to share a photo of your child or your children for use in Unschooling: The Movie, please go here to read more and for an e-mail link, already filled out with permission to use the photo:

A new page on what to consider if there is frustration in a marriage:
It will be expanded, but the list of considerations that's already there is by Glenda Sikes.

I can tell you how this is about unschooling, but not in one or two lines. It's about the connections that both unschooling and the internet makes possible, about what kinds of people become unschoolers, and about looking back, and forward.
If anyone reading here was in Cambridge (England's Cambridge) in the 1980's or knows people who were, maybe forward that. I'd love to have more on the page. Memories. Photos, maybe. Posters.

If you're on Facebook, please check out a new group called Radical Unschooling Info, the purpose of which is to help provide good unschooling resources to anyone who comes by there. I created the page, but many others are contributing to it. Come and help us out if you want to!

The photo is something I plan to send to Lee for his collection. It's Holly, half a dozen years ago, in a t-shirt I had kept from the early 1970's.

Schuyler, spanking, Godzilla, reading, TV

I've added a link to the page on Schuyler Waynforth, and anyone who hasn't been there for a while should revisit it anyway. I have the transcript of a talk she gave in London last summer, too.

In Europe there is a campaign against spanking. The one-minute public service announcement video and a news interview are both here:
and it's been added in the bottom right corner of the page about spanking

Deb Lewis wrote about her son's reading having a great leap from watching Godzilla with subtitles. It joins another Godzilla article, with a link to a slightly revamped wolfman and monsters article, with kid art:
