Magnets for sale

Holly and I made a set of five magnets with photos from Just Add Light and Stir, and quotes—not the same quotes they first appeared with, but some chosen to go with the photos. Quotes and photos maybe be seen in detail at .

We sold all the sets we had at The Good Vibrations Conference, but received a new shipment today. The proceeds will go toward rental of meeting rooms for the ALL Unschooling Symposium in Albuquerque in December. The result of having the magnets on your fridge or filing cabinet might be that might be inspired or reminded to be patient and present. They might also make great gifts!!

A full set of five is $10 (including shipping); individual magazines, with shipping, are $3.

Confidence, Principles, Unschooling without Labels

Addition to the "Confidence" page, something Meredith Novak wrote on Facebook.
(top of the page:)

Principles, something new by Joyce up top, and links added at the bottom.
This page could be a new starting place for the site, with a week's worth of reading.
Perhaps too intense for beginners.
Definitely a time for "Read a little, try a little, wait a while, watch."

In light of another spate of arguments for diagnosing and labelling children's "shiny differences," Chris Sanders wrote about traits her daughter had that needed time, attention, and unschooling, rather than professional "help."

Minecraft, Needs, Math, Dice Games

A new page on Minecraft, and parents not only accepting and supporting, but sharing a child's fascination with a game.

That link and another new one are added up top here:

A five year old is being sneaky; a parent is being an obstacle.
Joyce and Jenny C responded:

New, about cows, Barbie and My Little Pony, on the math phobia page:

Games with dice that can be played out and about, by Pam Sorooshian (bottom part is new)

My Just Add Light and Stir blog was a year old yesterday.
