Zombies, Changes and Changing

What might turn your child into a zombie? Rules, mostly. Or zombie attack.
The page isn't new, but I added new writing, lower right, and I had not announced it previously!

There are several pages now about changing—becoming better parents, changing terminology and ideas, becoming softer and less inflexible, understanding why the discussions are as they are. Not all are directly helpful to new unschoolers. Some are meta-discussion (discussing the discussions, or analyzing why some advice is given, or how it is given).

Announced here before:

New account of unexpected results and effects of unschooling, upper right, Janine Davies:

Short beginnings of a page on whether or how to instill "a work ethic"

Additions, bottom, about when to say "homeschool" and when to be more specific (my writing):

Trust, connections, being offended

Newest addition at the bottom of the page on trust, plus smaller bits above that:

New on Connections, about supporting a child's interests:

Sometimes people jump to offense. Try not to.

Sometimes people take pride in their indignation or whip themselves up into outrage.
The first link is more fun because it has Donald Duck. Don't be Donald Duck.
