Sugar, Spouses, Law of Attraction

Two new bits on kids and sugar, both by Annie Kessler, one she wrote on facebook, and the other she wrote to me so this will be a first-ever exclusive peek! :-)

I linked it here:

I was asked for what I had written on how "the law of attraction" can hinder unschooling. I've found two things and put them together here:

I know nothing is permanent; many large collections of unschooling writings are lost to us. But facebook discussions aren't even "permanent" for a week. So I saved things written by Sylvia Toyama and Schuyler Waynforth here, where there were already some great ideas stored:
(the page has also been cleaned up otherwise, and links added at the bottom)

Vickie Bergman let me share something she wrote, with her photos.
Unschooling: It's Like Riding a Bicycle
